The infamous 601 Blue Label Maduro was among the original collection of 601 Premium Cigars from the now defunct EO Brands. Over the years the 601 Blue Label Cigars and other 601 Premium Cigar brands (such as the Red Label and Green Label) have gone through many changes, including three different factories My Father, La Zona (the Espinosa Cigars factory), and San Lotano.
Back in 2012 Erik Espinosa took the 601 brands back, hand-rolling the cigars with a strict attention to detail at the La Zona boutique factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. The demand for Espinoa Cigars’ 601 Premium Cigars began to outpace the small factories abilities and production was moved to the San Lotano factory to be managed by the supreme talents of A.J Fernandez.
When the 601 Blue Label Maduro reviews are conducted by cigar connoisseurs they report back with the Premium Cigars being medium to full in body. These hand-rolled cigars showcase a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over a binder and filler that is 100% Nicaraguan tobaccos. The 601 Blue Label Maduro Premium Cigar line has 3 different sizes, Short Churchill, Toro, and Robusto, ranging from 5 ¼ inches to 6 ½ inches. The blend has become a staple among Maduro Premium Cigar fanatics. When smoking the 601 Blue Label Maduro Premium Cigars one can easily expect enjoyable flavors of chocolate, toasted bread, freshly roasted coffee beans, black pepper, charred oak and black berry jam sweetness.
