"A Great Experience!"
The 601 Blue Maduro is an awesome experience! From the flavorful wrapper (oily and gritty) to the smooth-yet-robust medium-bodied tobacco, you'll definitely be coming back for more. A must-try for fans of big, savory mouthfeel and clean, quality smoke.

Undoubtedly the best maduro cigar I've savored. The rich chocolate flavors make it extremely difficult to put this puppy down...delicious all the way to the nub.

"WORTH THE MONEY"
I picked up a 5 pack for a steal of a price at cigar monster; these things were fantastic. smooth, great flavor, plenty of smoke, a really great cigar. I would put this up against a 1964 Padron in overall satisfaction. Get 5, smoke them all, and the buy a box.

"One of the best"
This cigar is right up there with the best of them. Smooth, perfect draw, beautifully made...finally found a cigar to compete with Padron

"Smooth a Great smoke"
My go to smoke is Rocky Patel Cuban Blend. This is right up there. I bought a five pack of red,blue,black,green. The red was bitter at the end of each draw. The blue smooth from start to finish. A do over.

This is like smoking a chocolate bar with some espresso beans in it. The presentation of this cigar is perfect. It's got one of the best bands I've ever seen, the box press is perfect, and the maduro wrapper looks great. I thought it was of medium strength, but definetly very full on the flavor. It's a Nicaraguan puro but I'd say give this cigar a try if you're a fan of San Andres Morron, Mata Fina or Broadleaf maduros. Flavor-wise I thought this was similar to the Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real Maduro, Montecristo Reserva Negra and Capoeira.

"am I on fire?"
I agree with Michael in So. California I lit this 601 and after the first puff it produced so much smoke I thought my head was on fire, That withstanding this is clearly one of the best cigars I ever smoked, in fact of the "best of" sampler I bought this was the best so far. the burn although fast was even the consistancy was good the draw was overwhelming you just need shorter puff LOL, the appearance is perfect the construction was seemlesswith that nice oily madura sheen the taste was outstanding, nice sweet creamy taste.. Just remember small puffs. I wish I could afford these all the time. Thanx for the sale Famous!!

This is truely a great medium bodied smoke that has bit of a kick at the end. Lots of flavor that is smooth and even- complex with coffee and cocoa. Worth every penny!

"Full bodied beauty !"
A very good, full bodied, cigar with a bit of a punch. Even burn, easy draw, starts out sweet and carries all the way through with no bitterness and will stay lit for more than a couple of minutes. Would not recommend for the beginner.

"This is one great cigar!"
This is a very well-made cigar. A smooth, easy draw provides clouds of aromatic smoke and a nice even burn all the way to the end. I smoked this one until I couldn't hold it any longer. I'll be buying more.
