Camacho Cigars was established by Simon Camacho in the year of 1961. The company is based in Danli, Honduras, and the company specializes in high quality handmade cigars. The brand has been receiving raving reviews and testimonials from its users around the world. The product is being rated highly on many online forums and discussion boards too. This article provides a comprehensive review of Camacho cigars.
Simon Camacho, a Cuban national, was exiled from Cuba in the year of 1961. He moved to Miami, Florida in operating his cigar business from Miami. His cigars became famous in the U.S. as well as Europe during this time. He even found a fan in British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. Thereafter, Camacho named one of the premium cigars after Mr. Churchill. The company was making some of the best cigars in the world until the death of Camacho. The company was acquired by the Eiroa family in 1995 after the death of Camacho. The production of cigars from transferred to Honduras after this acquisition.
The Camacho Corojo is the most popular cigar launched by the Camacho group. The cigar was launched by the turn of the century. This launch helped the Eiroa family to join the leagues of the leading players in the U.S. cigar industry. In 2008, the Camacho group, and its factory in Honduras was sold to Oettinger Davidoff Group. The Camacho group was able to apply the Bayer’s standards for good agricultural and manufacturing practices thereafter.
Camacho cigars and Bayer CropScience signed a working partnership under the Bayer food management program. This helped the Camacho group to become the only cigar company in history to be in compliance with strict international standards for Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and Good Manufacturing Practices. They ensure the responsibility for proper management of natural resources, industrial safety, bio-friendly pesticides and bio-security. Camacho cigars signed a 3-year deal with Orange Bowl and the NCAA for the 2012 to 2014 Orange Bowl games. The company has numerous brands of cigars on the market currently. Some of the core brands include LegendArio, La Fontana Consigliere, LegendArio Connecticut and Baccarat “The Game”.
Some of the premium brands produced by the Camacho Group includes Camacho Connecticut, Room 101 San Andres, Camacho Coyolar Puro, Camacho Havana, Camacho Connecticut and Camacho Corojo. The Camacho Corojo has won numerous accolades as one of the best premium cigars on the market currently. It is considered a true Honduran Corojo Puro that comes in six vitolas. The cigar uses a three priming Authentic Corojo for the filler, an authentic Corojo binder and a fifth priming authentic Corojo wrapper.
The Camacho Corojo has a solid construction and a perfect draw as a cigar. There is a very even burn line without any flakiness in the ash. The cigar smells as a ripe barnyard on a hot day. After the cut, the draw of the cigar was great. The cold flavor represented earth, cedar and red pepper. The cigar is aggressively spicy and quite full-bodied right out of the box. The cedar flavor component was somewhat heavy while the earthiness was milder. The overall profile of the cigar could be defined by the pepper spice. It is quite subtle on the palate, mixing with the other flavors of the cigar. It will quietly set your tongue on fire. When the cigar was down to the second third, the pepper spice really backed down a little bit. Then, there was some natural sweetness that emerged in place of the pepper spice. This helps create a nice balance of flavors. The final third of the cigar was in full swing, replaced by a nutty cedary note.
The Camacho Corojo is a full-bodied cigar that is considered a “spice bomb.” There are a lot of earth, citrus, cedar and peeper notes in the cigar. It definitely is not a “one-note” stick. The product provides tremendous value to the avid smoker of cigar. This is why it is so highly rated by most of the cigar lovers out there.
Camacho Select is another high quality cigar brand produced by the Camacho Group. They are made in Honduras with Honduran filler and binder tobacco. The cigar includes a Cameroon wrapper for better quality. Even though Camacho Cigars became part of the Oettinger Davidoff Group in 2008, the company still produces cigars under the Camacho brand. The Camacho Select has a length of about five inches and a ring gauge of 50. The cigar has a very good draw compared to most of its competitor products out there. The ash is medium to long. The cigar burns evenly for most part of time. This is why there are so many positive reviews for the Camacho Select cigar brand too.
