The 601 Red Label Habano is a modern classic in the eyes of craft cigar enthusiasts across the country. The blend first debuted in 2007, along with sister blends 601 Green Label and 601 Blue Label. Collectively, the 601 series has long been known for showcasing high levels of flavor in an affordable price range.
With the 601 Red Label Habano, the cigar is distinguished by its natural-shade, Nicaraguan Habano wrapper leaf. This component is backed by an all-Nicaraguan binder/filler recipe, offering a classic puro performance with a kick! And as with all 601 cigars, the Red Label is now rolled at A.J. Fernández's remote San Lotano factory in Ocotal, Nicaragua. In addition, A.J. has given Espinosa Cigars access to his stock of highly aged Nicaraguan tobacco, allowing the 601 Red to showcase its original recipe with a heightened level of depth and complexity.
The Red Label ignites with a medium-plus body, allowing the flavor profile to take center stage. The cigar kicks off with a punch to the palate, making sure you know it means business! Flavors of white and black pepper abound, later settling to include supporting characteristics of leather, roasted nuts, cedar, and aged tobacco.
