601 La Bomba Review
Before I get started on the discussion of the 601 La Bomba I can’t help but wonder if they hired the same marketing people as Berger-Argenti (click here). Both cigars use the standard issue yellow advisory tab and they both use a gimmicky fuse and one may be cynical enough to think that these were marketing strategies used to mask the poor quality of the cigar. I can however, state unequivocally that this is not the case with the cigars and that in reality – both cigars are pretty darn good.
So – back to the 601 La Bomba 6×60 Cigar Review: This
little big gem of a cigar is a full body stick comprised of a Habano wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and fillers. The La Bomba is packed full of tobacco, has a beautiful wrapper and leaves one serious spice burn on your lips when you give it the pre-light trial.
From start to finish it is a strong cigar. I really enjoyed that 601 was able to release a full body cigar that did not taste like all of the other 601 lines (because they are all made by Pepin). Pepin has been a busy bee and due to his factory being apart of so many lines and manufacturers these days, some would say that things are beginning to taste the same and become a bit one-dimensional. The La Bomba on the other hand remains unique and the only thing I would note in the flavor profile shift is that the middle portion of the cigar becomes more full and the spice subdued. However, the 601 La Bomba will end with much of the same profile it begins with – which is quite fabulous.
Check this cigar out because anyone who loves a full body smoke that provides more than one tasting profile will appreciate this creation (gimmicky or not). La Bomba comes in a corona, robusto, toro and the 6×60. Prices all sit about $8.00.
