Quick Smoke: EO 601 Serie “White” Robusto

1 Oct 2011

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

This addition to EO Brands‘ popular 601 line has been overshadowed by the firm’s new dynamo, La Bomba. And there’s some confusion because the 601 line had included a now-discontinued stick with a Connecticut wrapper. The new Natural—also known as the 601 White Label—is a stouter smoke, with Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos providing pepper, particularly in the first half. I also picked up some of the hay and grass often associated with Connecticut tobacco, as well as pine and cedar. A tasty cigar, if not all that distinctive from several similar concoctions already on the market.

Verdict = Buy.
