601 Green label Reserva Limitada

This was shrapnel from a Shuckins bomb awhile back. It actually hit while I was a two digit midget (under a hundred posts) It has been stored at about 61% for a few days.

The pre-light inspection reveals a very dark wrapper with no large veins and only a couple of smaller but noticeable ones. The wrap looked very well made. The cap cut very clean and this cigar smelled like no other this noob has tried. This is a firm stick but not as hard as others I have smoked as others I have tried, no soft spots. The draw was OK but I have had others I liked better.

After sparking this baby up, there was a decent amount of smoke and the taste had a sharp taste and was as strong as any cigar I had smoke.. Can you tell I'm a no palate noob? After about 1/3 of the way through, the sharpness settled down to a very good tobacco flavor though still an the high side of a medium body. The flavor had changed more to my liking, too. I even thought I got a few taste hints of my humidor once in awhile. The draw even loosened up a fraction.

The first light colored ash fell at about the halfway point and and the taste changed a bit and the strength seemed to mellow or I was getting use to the nic.

After the halfway point all the way to the nub, the mixed black/white ash became flaky. It would fall almost predictably as it reach 1/2" The flavors kicked in strong at the final third and I tasted this stick for quite awhile after it was laid to rest near my vegetable growing pots.

I did sip some Gentleman Jack on the rocks with this smoke. I would have willingly smoked another of these soon after the first. Great Cigar!

Now, after doing some research, I can't seem to find them. I have to guess the "Reserva Limitada" was really true! Also have to guess this piece of SS ( Shuckins Shrapnel) was rested for quite a long time before it inflicted its damage on me.

Thanks to Shuckins for this great smoke and for showing me the way down the slope.

601 greens should be on the cigar monster mash later today. One of my favorite cigars. The rest of the 601 line is great also. Nice review sir.

I have had the red and blue and been waiting for the green to come up on the monster. Red and blue were good and believe the green would be even better. Thanks for the review.
