601 Series Limitada Red Robusto

601 Series Limitada Red Robusto (5x50)
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan
Price: $5.00

Made by Don Pepin Garcia for EO brands. This appears to be the fullest in body of the 601 series from what I've heard about it.

Beautiful light brown mottled wrapper, with very good construction. No prominent veins. When cut, the cigar was a tad tight on the draw.

On the initial light and draws, the Pepin spice was mild. Though afterwards, creamy cedar flavors through 1st and 2nd thirds of the cigar. Mellows out about half way through with some milk chocolate. Medium strength vitola. Smooth smoke all the way to the nub. Personally, I would have like this better, but I'm not a huge cedar fan.

Spent 4 months in my personal humidor.

Score: 89-90
