If you thought you knew strong cigars, think again— 601 La Bomba is sure to join the ranks of the strongest cigars you’ve ever smoked. These Nicaraguan-made firecrackers were blended by Erik Espinosa and each features a fuse-like pigtail trailing down the cigar from the cap. Hand rolled in Esteli, Nicaragua, 601 La Bomba boasts extra-dark Nicaraguan Habano wrappers and spicy interior leaves from Nicaragua, culminating in a legitimate powerhouse of a smoke with big, bold notes of leather, espresso, red pepper, and a slight hint of molasses sweetness on the finish. A word of warning: smoke slowly, and after a sizeable meal.
This was a robust, well made cigar. Great flavor. I have reordered.
