Quick Smoke: EO 601 Serie “Green” La Fuerza

4 Apr 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Quick Smoke: EO 601 Serie “Green” La Fuerza

This ultra oily, habano oscuro-wrapped stick was outstanding when I reviewed it back in December 2007, but 15 months of humidor time improved the La Fuerza considerably. Gone are the occasional bitter notes that once stalked this cigar’s powerful flavor. Instead, the flavors of coffee, roasted nuts, and cocoa bean blend more harmoniously to yield more balance and slightly less strength. So while this five and ½ inch by 54 ring gauge stick remains full-bodied, age seems to have imparted a noble maturity—a big payoff for a $7 investment.

Verdict = Buy.
