Guest Quick Smoke: EO 601 Serie “Green” Trabuco

21 Oct 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar. The following is a Guest Quick Smoke, submitted by a reader for our Quick Smoke Cigar Giveaway contest. If you’d like to submit your own for publication, please contact us.

The EO 601 Habano Oscuro Trabuco is a giant, 6.125 inch by 58 ring gauge creation by none other than Don “Pepin” Garcia. This is said to be the most full-bodied of the 601 lineup. The cigar has a good draw, initially starts off with a typical Pepin taste, a blast of cayenne and black pepper, which lasts for about an inch. Then the taste profile changes to that of maduro, not sweet but complex leather, wood, and coffee. The black pepper and cayenne keeps going in and out for about two inches, then the flavor starts to build up and once again becomes sharp, but not with a kick like at the beginning. This cigar was interesting enough to keep me occupied all the way.

Verdict = Buy.

    These cigars are a real powerhouse. All I could do was stare at the wall for an hour after I smoked it.
