The Maduro line is not your average maduro – it is one of the mildest manudos on the market, yet it still delivers a rich, complex maduro flavor. The Maduro features double-fermented, Cuban-seed Dominican filler tobaccos and a sweet, dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.

Available brands by 601 Cigars include:
If you’re one of those cigar smokers who crave a good traditional and full-flavored cigar reminiscent of the best Cubans, then the 601 line from EO Brands should find a place in your humidor. 601 cigars are relative newcomers to the world of premium cigars, part of the wave of new, exciting, and almost revolutionary smoking products making their way into the market. EO Brands, the brainchild of Erik Espinosa and Eddie Ortega, launched their brand in 2003. Now manufactured exclusively for United Tobacco, the memorable 601 cigars are blended by the revered Don Pepin Garcia at the El Rey de las Habanas facility in Nicaragua.
The 601 Original is medium- to –full-bodied, the result of combining the finest Nicaraguan filler with a natural Habano wrapper. It is this cigar’s piercing and bitter aroma that generates the comparisons to the famed Cubans. Indeed, it is the intense aromas associated with all the 601 line that have placed them in the limelight since their launch. The 601 Green Band is considered to be the most intense and aromatic of the line, utilizing the Nicaraguan filler with an aged Habano Oscuro wrapper, providing this cigar with its bite and tang. 601’s Red Label is a big favorite among those who like a more robustly aromatic cigar with a medium body and a less assertive bite. It features a natural Habana wrapper and medium-blend filler. Blue Labels also benefit from Habano Maduro wrappers and a very tasty blend of tobaccos in the filler. The Maduro component gives this cigar a well-rounded taste that demands notice. The 601 Black Label has a milder Connecticut wrapper surrounding a blend of select tobacco filler but it still offers the enthusiast a memorable smoke. “Milder” is a relative term when discussing 601 cigars. In fact, the 601 Pressed Box Maduro cigars are developing an almost cult-like following after being included in Cigar Aficionado magazine’s top 10 in 2009. The 601s are available in a range of ring sizes from 46 to 52. The substantial 601 Green Label La Punta Perfecto Habano Oscuro is 5.5 X 52, a classic profile for the dedicated cigar connoisseur.
A dark, mysterious dark rum is the only beverage that can stand up to the piquancy and power of the 601 cigars. These are the cigars for serious times and serious thinking.
