Review Notes: This is my 2nd take at this cigar. I have a couple more in the humidor and will definitely save them for for a while. There is a little spice when you first fire it up, and then again near the end. The two words that repeatedly come to mind when I smoke this is, Mature and Balanced. It's just a great smoke. I smoke half with a crisp Micholob Ultra while mesquite grilling a couple of New York strips. Cut it off halfway, ate dinner, and then had the rest with an absolute top notch, Ron Anejo Aniversario Venezuelan rum. The crisp beer is a prefect accent to this mature blend. It had trouble keeping up with the aged rum, but it put on a valiant effort. I like this smoke more with each pass. Once again, a knuckle burner. Beautiful cigar.

"Best smoke I've had in a long time"

Review Notes: This was the first 601 I've smoked and it was a true pleasure. My palet wasn't perfect when I smoked it (due to a few drinks), but it was the smoothest, most consistent cigar I've had in a long time. Medium body, mature flavors, no spice or pepper. I would say a little leather, but the fact that I can't describe the taste doesn't mean it didnt' have it. A luxurious smoke. Beautiful constuction. I lit it a little unevenly and it even itself out. Salt and pepper ash, smooth draw, lots of thick smoke. Wish I were bigger. Great like a good meal. (I have 3 more in my humidor, want to smoke em now, and keep em forever. Tough call.)
