The 411 on the Serie 601 Ecuadorian wrapped Robusto Introduced at the 2006 RTDA in Las Vegas, the The Serie 601 from EO Brands is handmade in Pepin Garcia’s new Nicaraguan factory. Available in two wrappers, a dark Nicaraguan Habano with a Red band, and a rich looking smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut with a black band, we review the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapped Robusto in this review. Jump on the Pepin Garcia bandwagon, and you’re sure to have a hit on your hands. At least that seems to be the thought process this year in the world of cigars. The rich wrapper on the Robusto had a beautiful sheen to it. Handling this cigar, you quickly get anxious to put a lighter to it. You expect nothing but quality from a “Pepin” rolled cigar, and that’s pretty much the story here. Perfect draw and solid construction were the norm. If we were to nitpick, the cap seemed weak on our cigars, and exploded when we cut them. We don’t pay much attention to that as we rarely pick the cap up off the floor and throw a flame on it. A dirty grey ash stays with your cigar until you force it to leave, another sigh Pepin Garcia was involved. Deemed the weaker of the two Mike Tyson like cigars, the black labeled Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper cigar was spicy and rich, but not exactly strong. We would categorize this cigar as between medium and strong, but definitely delicious. A consistent flavor rewards you as you work your way through the cigar. Age perhaps, as these were young smokes was responsible for the dominant spice flavor throughout. This is a good smoke. If you’re looking for a cigar that will leave you with some spice on the palate without destroying it for the next 24 hours, this will work. The body, bouquet, and overall experience are destined for the memory bank. We can’t wait to revisit this cigar with another 6 months on it. Vital Statistics: Size – 5 ½ x 50 Wrapper – Ecuadorian Connecticut Filler – Nicaragua Binder - Nicaragua MSRP - $6.50
