601 Green Habano Oscuro Tronco Review
I've fallen behind on my reviews this week. Work really has a way of getting in the way of things sometimes, but at least it keeps me in cigars.
This Nicaraguan puro is a very hefty cigar that is firmly packed with no prominent veins.
The first third begins with a wonderful coffee flavor that is full-bodied but smooth. The finish reveals hints of pepper that balance very nicely. This third begins to remind me of Thai coffee about an inch in as a subtle sweetness enters the profile.
The draw and burn are both excellent.
There is very little change in the transition, which I am happy about. I was not ready for the deliciousness of the first third to end. The ash is very strong and remains until I knock it off to prevent it from falling in my lap.
Deeper into the second third the coffee flavor is replaced by a nice cedar and the draw tightens up a bit, but it loosens up again by the time we get to the final third.
Aside from a subtle addition of spice, the flavor profile does not change much during this third. This remains a very well balanced cigar throughout. I purchased 10 of these on free fall and immediately begin looking for deals on more.
This is a fantastic cigar that will always have a place in my humidor, and I can't wait to try one paired with a nice Thai coffee this weekend.
I highly recommend this cigar to anyone who enjoys full-bodied smokes.
