Review Notes: Like many of Pepinís productions, the 601 Connect opens with a good dose of pepper delivered straight to the sinuses. Itís full bodied from start to finish, but it goes through a fair number of changes and shows a lot of complexity. The wrapper imparts a really nice buttery aroma to an otherwise spicy Nicaraguan brew ó an unusual combination, but for whatever reason it works. After the mid-point the smoke becomes creamier in texture and the flavor takes on a leathery aspect. The spice lightens up a bit, but this cigar never strays too far from the pepper mill. The aroma from the wrapper is a little bit overpowered by the full bodied blend at this point, but itís still present enough to maintain the balance of the cigar. This is an unusual blend -- one of the strongest CT wrapped cigars out there -- but worth the price of admission.
