Review Notes: This is not my first go at a 601 cigar; I loved the 601 black with the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. I also have a box of 601 Habanos sleeping in my locker at the local humidor. I got three 601 blues in a Don Pepin Garcia sampler from auction for $3 a piece. It is a firm, tight, box pressed cigar with a perfect draw. Impressive construction! The wrapper is slightly oily with a few fine veins, quite nice overall. Most maduros leave me flat with an aroma of burnt coffee and a flavor that just tastes burned (worst case scenario is the Padilla Obsidian, yuck) . Not this one. The first third is subtle with some sweet spicy goodness. A lovely natural sweetness is left on the lips. After the first ashing a razor-sharp burn became slightly uneven, but self-corrected very quickly. A slight pepper taste developed. Finally, the pepper receded and dark chocolate kept jumping in and out. The finish was always surprisingly clean. In summary, the 601 blue is slow-burning (almost 2 hours!) with Padron-like construction, a razor-sharp burn and sweet, spicy, mild peppery flavors and a hint of dark chocolate. Both flavor and body are mild to medium.
