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."
