A tasty stogie that deserves a home in any cigar humidor, the 601 Blue Label Maduro Robusto is a square-pressed beauty with a very dark Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, and Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. The cigar starts with a blast of pepper that soon gives way to notes of coffee and leather. At the halfway point, the stick takes on notes of sweet spice and caramel, making the whole blend highly complex. The cigar finishes creamy-smooth and holds an even burn with hardly any touchups. Dense clouds and a very fragrant aroma add to the overall smoking enjoyment, especially when this top-notch Robusto is paired with a juicy steak and a dark imported ale.
