Do you enjoy powerful cigars?  Then you’ll want to read these reviews on the 601 La Bomba Warhead and the E.P. Carrillo E-Stunner.

601 La Bomba Warhead

You can tell just by looking at the La Bomba name that this is a brand that caters to experienced smokers seeking powerful smokes.  Add to that a line like the Warhead, and you’ve got yourself a cigar that’s definitely not for the faint of heart.  The Warhead was added as a La Bomba extension during summer last year.  It’s a limited edition release, but I was lucky enough to find one for this review, despite the fact that it’s been available for some time now.  Realizing that this is a strong smoke, I filled up my belly with a nice meal prior to lighting it up.  With that being said, let’s get on with the review…

The 601 La Bomba Warhead is a box-pressed stogie that measures 6 1/2 x 54.  The cigar’s filler and binder are both made up of Nicaraguan tobacco.  The wrapper is Connecticut Broadleaf that has been grown in the Connecticut River Valley.  As far as strength it concerned, I think I made it rather clear in the intro that this is a full-bodied smoke all the way.

Considering the La Bomba name, it’s only appropriate that this cigar comes with a long pigtail cap that looks like a fuse you’d light on a bomb.  Beyond that, the box-pressed shape is the Warhead’s most noticeable physical aspect.  A few medium-sized veins are visible on the dark and oily wrapper, and the cigar feels firm to the touch.  A simple band sits at the foot, and it has the 601 La Bomba name stamped on along with the Warhead moniker in a red, white, and black color scheme.  Before lighting the Warhead, it has a spicy scent and a cold taste that’s sweet.

After lighting, the 601 La Bomba Warhead burns with ease.  The easy draw is relaxing, and there’s a ton of smoke.  The ash is solid and dark gray in color.  The burn line remains even throughout the smoking experience without the need for any touch-ups.  Re-lights? They’re unnecessary as well.
