i decided to smoke my 1st 601 blue today.
it had been resting for about two months at 65RH, then two weeks at 60%.
unfortunately, the flavors that i was expecting from other reviews were not there.
it pretty much tasted like plain tobacco from start to finish along with some spicy tingle. and...
Series: Blue Box-Pressed Maduro
Vitola: Robusto 5.2x52
Drink: Coke Zero with The Kraken rum
Prelight: Can definitely get the chocolate, both in the smell and the prelight draw. Also getting the familiar sweet barnyard tobacco aroma.
First: You know you are smoking something by Don...
Went to a local B&M today for the first time and noticed they had 2 different versions of the 601 blue label.
One version was the one you see everywhere with the standard 601 band with "reserva limitada" underneath "601".
then there was another band with a more stylized "601" logo, that did...
Series: Oscuro Green Label
Vitola: Tronco 5x52
Prelight: Getting that earthy hay aroma along with something sweeter. I believe chocolate. Also getting some spice, not pepper spice, but something closer to a cinnamon? Went ahead and lit with just a cheap throwaway butane...
I've been a huge fan of the 601 Green for quite some time now, and had always been a bit stumped by what seems to be the general consensus that the 601 Blue is the real standout in the 601 line. I'd smoked maybe 4-5 of them and was always left with the feeling that yes, it is a very good smoke...
This was shrapnel from a Shuckins bomb awhile back. It actually hit while I was a two digit midget (under a hundred posts) It has been stored at about 61% for a few days.
The pre-light inspection reveals a very dark wrapper with no large veins and only a couple of smaller but noticeable ones...
i smoked this cigar earlier today (it was very good!)
and as i was playing with the band (yeah,i do that...lol) i noticed this on the back
since i don't have a phone that will do stuff like that,i ask again,has anyone ever scanned it,and if so,what is it?
Some months go I ordered a fiver of 602 habano red. I have been smoking them along and decided I wanted to get a box. And, yippee it arrived today. But when I opened the box and looked at the cigars I was surprised. The band is completely different than the bands of the first five I received...
I'm sitting here finishing my first 601 "Red Label" and there's so much to like: great texture, good oils and a rich, dark aroma.like moist, musty...

Received my free promo stick today from EO Brands ( Eddie Ortega).
Was very surprised to find 2 hitch hikers along with it. A 601 Reserva Limitada and a Murcielago.
The La Bomba looks very nice with a nice 2" or so tail. Looking forward to test driving these sticks. They look great.
I smoked Tatuaje Ambos Mundos Habano and Excalibur Cameroon the same day I smoked this cigar. Maybe that got my hopes and standards up a bit to hi...

No prominent veins
Beautiful Maduro wrapper; very smooth with a nice barnyard aroma.
Starts off with the common Nicaraguan spice.
After ½ inch, the spice lessens and allows the sweetness of the Maduro wrapper to show itself...
Soooo.....my B&M is having a 601 event tomorrow.
I deserve a break.
What should I fire up from 601? I like medium to strong stuff. Starting to lean more to the stronger, matter of fact.
I leave my end of week burn in your collective hands. Guide me, oh wise ones.

I've fallen behind on my reviews this week. Work really has a way of getting in the way of things sometimes, but at least it keeps me in cigars.
This Nicaraguan puro is a very hefty cigar that is firmly packed with no prominent veins.
The first third begins with a wonderful...
