Quick Smoke: EO 601 Serie “Green” La Fuerza

4 Dec 2011

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

I’ve had this five and a half inch by 54 ring gauge cigar in the bottom of my humidor for at least a few years. Time has mellowed it slightly, but the Nicaraguan puro is still full-bodied. It’s earthy and leathery, with dense powdered cocoa. With excellent construction, it’s still a favorite of mine.

Verdict = Buy.

    This is one of my all time faves. Blue label maduro is great too. Perhaps its the age on the older ones I have (as one can tell with your sample as well due to the "old" band) but I think they have better overall flavor than the new ones I've picked up with the revamped bands. EO says they didn't change the blend, so I'll take their word for it, and chalk it up to the newer ones just not having as much humi time.

    One of my favorite full-bodied smokes as well. I have some with the new bands, but haven't gotten around to them yet.
