An amazing $1.40 handmade from 601 cigars.
The new-old gem recently made its way back to CI HQ. And just a few puffs had the boys in the office throwing around prices like $4-5 apiece. And they’re worth that easily. But my heart’s with the people - so I vetoed and ‘suggested’ a sub $2 price tag. Naturally, no objections.
From Erik Espinosa, the man behind the highly-rated 601 brand, these hearty, Cuban-esque handmades are carefully crafted in Nicaragua with a silky Connecticut wrapper and a rich, well-aged blend of Cuban-seed long-fillers. The combination promotes a smooth, everyday smoke complete with ample flavor and a perfectly-medium-bodied profile. Notes of oak, black pepper, sweet cream, coffee and more grace each clean n’ creamy puff. It’s good….really good….and they’re yours for as little as $1.47 apiece.
