Just when you thought 601 Serie couldn’t get any stronger, another fantastic, full-bodied brute has made its way onto the scene. Dressed in a dark, leathery Habano Oscuro wrapper from Nicaragua, this bold handmade employs an extensively aged mixture of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers to promote a fireplug of a cigar. Each cigar is meticulously handmade to deliver a potent array of balanced flavor. Heavy in the hand and oily to the touch, 601 Serie Habano Oscuro coats the palate with a dense bouquet loaded with rich, chocolatey flavors, coffee undertones, peppery nuances, and a long, toasty aftertaste.
The Habano Oscuro variety of 601 Serie received a well-deserved, 90-point rating, noting: "Dark and lush with good oils. This is a notably spicy perfecto with a core of leather flavors and a long finish. A medium- to full-bodied cigar."
Got this one originally on my monthly order (what a great deal for expanding horizons) and I really liked it. Ordered another batch and confirmed this as a solid smoke that leaves nothing on the table. Consistent construction, full flavor from stem to stern with enough complexity to keep you interested. Would never be ashamed to offer one to a friend or my boss.

Long lasting quality smoke built solid and is heavy in the hand. Stays strong throughout. Flavors of black pepper/leather/expresso/tobacco. One of my favorites!
