601 Green Oscuro La Punta Perfecto Cigar Review
This 5.5×48-52 perfecto stick offers a very dark brown, almost black wrapper with a slight red hue, a velvet texture and a rock hard pack. It shows minimal veins, tight seams, very even firm construction and offers a barnyard and tobacco aroma. First light reveals an insanely tight draw but big medium-full flavors of deep oily tobacco and white pepper with a long earthy finish. 10 minutes in the draw opens up to a very nice light resistance and smoke output is excellent. Flavors are very deep and substantial with a long full finish. The draw flavors are very woody and peppery with an oily slick on the lips but dry parched mouthfeel. 25 minutes in I had to give it a small touchup, there was a strip on one side that wasn’t burning. 35 minutes in hitting the 1/2 way point flavors shift just lightly, adding a dark chocolate in to the mix. Ending at 1:15 the 2nd half proved to be very similar, only changing the draw back to snug, but not a big problem. I did have to give it another touchup, and the ash on this last half was not as firm as the first, flowering and flaking quite a bit. Thank you very much to our fan Jeremie Plouffe for providing this sample for review, I appreciate it very much brother!
