Review Notes: I thought these were kind of brash and uneven six months ago. The downtime has done a lot to balance them out. Still starts with a jolt of grass and pepper that'll make you snotty, but settles quickly into a smooth, balanced groove. I'd have to smoke more of these to be sure, but this seems earthier and not as nutty as other Pepin blends. Leathery core. Power and complexity ramp up noticeably on the second half. I seem to be in the minority, but I find these to be quite strong, even compared to other ERDLH fare. Helluva $5 smoke with good aging potential ahead of it.

"The red banded"

Review Notes: One dimensional power for the first 1.5", before evolving into something more interesting. Most akin to Pepin's Blue Label, with its occasionally sharp, peppery kick. The second half settles down and develops nice complexity around its leathery core. The further I get into this one, the more I like it. I think I prefer the subtlety and smoothness of Pepin's milder blends (White Label, Nacionales W, Padilla Achilles), but the 601 Red is pretty damned good.
