601 Oscuro Trabuco Review

601 Oscuro on thegarshop copyBefore I get into the review, here’s the stats on the 601 Green Label. The Trabuco is a 6 1/8 x 58 and it’s from Nicaragua. It is wrapped in a beautiful Nicaraguan Habano Oscuro wrapper and is filled and binded with Nicaraguan tobacco.

Now for the fun stuff, the smoke. The first third of the 601 Green Label is super strong and very full bodied to the point of you don’t want to smoke one on an empty stomach, which is true of all the cigars in the 601 line. The flavor profile of the Green Label is spicy but definitely has notes of cocoa and coffee. It has a lot of flavor for a big cigar.

The second third remains very strong yet it is very smooth for a full bodied smoke. The spicy flavor remains into the second third, but the cocoa and coffee notes diminish greatly. The burn on this smoke is great and the draw is easy.

The Green Label finishes very smooth, yet never lacked strength. The spiciness remains throughout the entire cigar, while some sweetness comes through in the end. Overall the 601 Green Label is an awesome full bodied cigar, a solid 4 ½ out of 5 flames cigar.

Until next time, Happy Smoking!
