    Continuing our EO 601 cigar reviews series, here comes the review of the Green Label Habano Oscuro Tronco (robusto). This time, it is a Nicaraguan puro with a Habano Oscuro wrapper. Tronco is a 5 x 52 robusto, 4 other sizes are available in the series – Trabuco (grand corona 6 1/8 x 58), La Fuerza (robusto 5 1/2 x 54), La Punta (perfecto 5 1/2 x 52) and Corona (5 x 42).

    Appearance : [rating:4/5]
    The Habano Oscuro wrapper is quite veiny, I find it the least attractive from the series. The coloration is not regular, the surface is oily enough.

    Construction : [rating:5/5]
    The burn is slow and regular, you don’t need to worry about the cigar dying out. Good construction qualities are common to EO 601 sticks, it seems, I’ve yet to find one with serious issues.

    Flavor : [rating:4/5]
    The beginning is very similar to the Black Label – overwhelming, tonic spice. However, a few minutes in things completely change and this definitely full-bodied stick develops heavy, rich aromas of roasted coffee and cocoa in the second third, along with shots of hazelnut. The finish is butt-kicking, with lots of powerful coffee, chocolate and leather flavors. Probably, too powerful for my taste.

    Value : [rating:4/5]
    $8 per stick is a correct price tag for Don Pepin’s creations.

    Overall Rating : [rating:4.5/5]
    I would recommend the Green Label for amateurs of powerful, dumping cigars. Camacho Corojo Monarca is in the same league.

      The first time I smoked one of these I thought,,WOW, what a gem. I see these from time to time for $5 a stick and try to buy every one of them and they are like gold.

      This is one nice spicy smoke. I like it with a nice rum.

      When I went a power house it is either this one or the Blue Label that I pick up. Great spicy power house smokes. The Blue Label is a bit sweeter though.
