These Full Bodied Sticks of Blended High Octane tobacco are the newest blend from the greats at EO brands. With only the fullest and most flavorful leaves picked for the blend. An incredible Full bodied, full flavor cigar from Nicaragua. Sporting a Nicaraguan binder and filler and a Nicaraguan Habano Oscuro wrapper that gives this cigar tons of flavor. The pigtail cap looks like a fuse like the M-80 by Pete Johnson and Tatuaje cigars.
Eric Espinoza and Eddie Ortega sought to make the fullest cigar they could ever roll. Made in Esteli Nicaragua at the my father cigar factory, with true Nicaraguan Flavor and body this cigar is not for everyone but anyone who wants the fullest body and flavor from a cigar they can find. Or anyone who wants the bragging rights to say they’ve smoked a 601 La Bomba.
The pre-lit aroma was strong and smelled of earth and leather and the first puff after lighting was a huge but not overpowering pepper bomb that I could feel in back of my throat. The flavor then picked up and it was primarily leather, mixed with some earthy notes, just like the pre-lit aroma. At the half way point most of the pepper I was getting had mellowed out into a woody and earthy fullness that was very pleasent. The body and spice started building up, but again definitely not overpowering. The EO Brands La Bomba is all in all a very enjoyable smoke. It’s flavor profile will definitely cater towards those who enjoy a more full cigar.
