601 Connecticut - Here to stay
601 Cigars are a highly rated boutique cigar brand produced by Erik Espinosa in his La Zona Factory in Esteli, Nicargaua. From the 93-rated Maduro, to the 92-rated Habano, and the 90-rated Oscuro, they’ve created a top-notch blend for most wrapper types out there. Over the years they’ve tried a few different Connecticut blends, but they all seemed to be pulled from the market shortly after their release. Well, we’ve got some good news - 601 White Label Connecticut is back, and this time it’s here to stay.
601 White Connecticut arrives in a light brown Ecuador Connecticut wrapper with a Cuban style triple cap. Underneath this mellow leaf are stronger tobaccos. A Nicaraguan binder and long-fillers from both Esteli and Jalapa, Nicaragua. Overall, it’s a smooth medium-bodied blend that stays interesting from start to finish. There are notes of hay, wood, a slight nuttiness, and a pleasant creaminess. Packaged in boxes of 15, this cigar has all the boutique charm you want, at prices you can afford.
