601 Reserva Limitada Blue Label

Don Pepin Garcia is one of my very favorite cigar rollers. I've had several dozen of most of his cigars and I've not really had a dud yet. Without further ado, my review:

My initial thoughts on this cigar is that it's a bit plain-jane looking. The maduro wrapper is dark, but not too dark. There's a couple of veins, but nothing to write home about. The label is a blue, red, and gold affair with the numbers 601 brazenly in the middle. Like I said, it's not ugly, but it doesn't really stick out either. Not detered, I set out to see how this little guy taste. That was a good idea. The cigar lit with no issues and a decent amount of blueish smoke began to wiff off the end. The initial puffs were all Don Pepin - super intense pepper. This was quickly followed up with some woodsy flavors and a bit of leather. About half way through a creamy bitter espresso taste crept into the cigar and all three figures melded together with pepper still being the predominant flavor. The flavors pretty much stayed the same after that - something I don't always look as a negative. The cigar finished with a nice pepper and leather blast. It was pretty much a typical Don Pepin cigar and one I'd recommend.
