601 La Bomba Nuclear Cigar Review
This 6×50 stick features a dark brow, firmly packed slightly toothy wrapper with a dry texture, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a long pigtail ‘fuse’ and rich sweet hay aroma. First light reveals a great draw with plentiful rich smoke production showing medium-full bodied flavors of a sweet oily earth followed by a big pepper and spice blast through the long finish. The first third develops much the same, just adding a bit of creamy milk chocolate on the draw, mellowing to a solid medium body, followed by a long slightly less peppery finish. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 40 minutes, construction is great holding the ash in 1/3 chunks with voluminous smoke output. Flavors are largely unchanged with just the chocolate lingering a bit more in the finish. Starting the final third flavors remain the same but strength starts to ramp up, almost even with the body giving me a little bit of a rush. Ending at 1:10 the last third drops the cream and chocolate just going to a peppery earth while ramping up the strength giving me quite a head rush! Thank you very much to EspinosaCigars.com for providing this sample for review!
