Wrapper – Habano Oscuro

Tobacco Blend – Nicaraguan

Construction/Appearance:

The cigar is a chocolate brown color with a toothy feel to the touch. There are a few veins and tight seams. This cigar is finished with a double cap.

Pre-Light:

Aroma – Floral, Cedar and Smoke

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Nuts and Cedar

After Toast:

First Third – A real robust earthy note mixed with some type of raw seed note begin this smoke. Some pepper notes also stick the back of the throat. Once this settles in, some coffee notes mixed with leather are revealed. Burn is pristine and ash fell at the end of the third.

Second Third – Leather and cedar mix with dark roasted coffee take the center stage at this point in the cigar. The finish lingers a long time with that strong coffee flavor. Amazing finish that really helps you pace this smoke before reaching for the next draw. The burn remained pristine.

Final Third – The leather here lightens up and the cedar tang kicks up. Coffee notes still carry this cigar forward here as the dominant note. Great flavor here.

Suggested Pairing:

Bourbon – Knob Creek Single Barrel

Wine – Markham Merlot

Overall Experience:

This 601 Cigars Green Label Oscuro by Espinosa Cigars was a phenomenal smoke right out of the gate and continued through the entire experience. A nice full bodied stick that really hits the palate hard with great rich flavors. I’d recommend this cigar to everyone who loves a strong cigar.
