Eddie Ortega was part of the duo of EO Brands that make the 601, Murcielago and Cubao cigar lines with partner Erik Espinosa. Late last year, Eddie left EO Brands to create his own cigar company with his first cigar line being the Serie D. Featuring a dark Mexican maduro wrapper with Nicaraguan binder and fillers, this cigar was created to be a high quality cigar at an affordable price. Soon as I could, I ordered a sampler of the cigars from Buckhead Cigars in Atlanta, GA. I immediately smoked each size in about 2 days to find which size I like the best. For me, that was the No. 6. The No. 6 is a petit robusto/rothschild that seemed to really concentrate the flavors and give great smoke volume. The cigar burned great and had flavors of cocoa, leather, raisin, cayanne and cedar with a full body. You can watch the video for a more full review. Also, don’t forget about the contest. You can win a sampler of these cigars (one of each size) by simply:
