Some developing themes I’m seeing at this year’s IPCPR. The 6×60 size continues with the smaller corona and petite corona starting to catch on. Lots of use of Mexican San Andres maduro wrapper and lots of Connecticut Shade wrappers. I say this now as a preview to EO Brands. EO Brands went with a new look to their 601 bands last year when they first moved distribution to Rocky Patel. After a less than enthusiastic reaction, the bands were changed again to a much more welcoming reception. I tried a pre-release of the 601 La Bomba and its definitely a flavor and strength bomb that after hearing Erik Espinosa talk about how the La Bomba was the strongest most full bodied cigar at the show, I had to nod my head in agreement. Also Erik shows us the new 601 Natural and some new sizes to the Murcielago line. I gotta say, I was disappointed that Brian didn’t ask anything about the Cubao and Cubao Maduro lines.
