"My new favorite"
Enjoyed one of these last night and now have a new favorite cigar. Very even burn, nice smell and a wonderfully smooth flavor all the way to the nub. Hope they go on sale soon!

3-5 weeks in the humidor and this stick rocks.

"Thank you, Mr. Camacho"
I honestly don't even know where to begin. This was, without a doubt, THE BEST CIGAR I'VE EVER SMOKED! Even better than the Gurkha Grand Reserve infused with Louis XIII cognac. I absolutely hated to see it end. I smoked it down beyond the nub. I smoked this cigar for 1 1/2 hours, and it's only a 4.5/50 size. It was a bear getting it lit, but after that...it was a slice of heaven. The taste was smooth from start to finish. It burned perfectly. I couldn't even tap off the ash after it was over an inch long, and I only tapped it off 3 times during the entire smoke. And that's not even the best part. It gave me a buzz that made me wonder what Mr. Camacho is putting in these things. It is absolutely a mind-altering cigar. I'd have a very rough day, and after 15 minutes of smoking this stick, I was giggling. I'm STILL giggling, 15 minutes after I finally had to let it go. (I was seriously thinking about using a pair of tongs to smoke it even further.) What an amazing cigar! I'd easily rate this cigar a 97. I just don't know how you can make a better cigar. It has a natural sweetness, with just a hint of saltiness thrown in to boot. It created billows of smoke, and was truly the most enjoyable cigar I've ever smoked. I now consider myself to be a Camacho Camacho man. (Now see if you can get that Village People tune out of your head!!) Like I said...I was giggly while I was smoking it, and I'm giggly now. I can't believe this cigar doesn't get knockout reviews from the so-called experts, but maybe it's not for everybody. All I can say is that it's definitely for me.

"Stunning. Simply stunning."
There are great cigars and then there are those small few that defy description. The trip maduro is one of those. Easily the most flavorful, full-bodied smoke I've ever had, but exceptionally smooth and creamy right to the end. Pricey, yes, but unlike many others, these are well worth it!

"Best of the best"
Presenting the finest cigar available today in my opinion - this cigar is loaded with flavor, power, and is incredibly smooth. The draw was excellent, burn flawless, and construction of very high quality. Yes, they are pricey but like everything else in life, you get what you pay for.

"Ok Flavor..spring for 10th Anniversary"
Cigar looked good. Had decent smell to it. After lighting up it was pretty boring. Good long burn even though a bit uneven. Flavor did not stand out enough to make note. 10th Anniversary is far better for the amount you spin.

deceptive power due to its smoothness... humidor time improves even this top notch cigar... camacho does not make a bad cigar...

"One of my favorites"
Obviously full bodied. I'm a conditioned smoker, but I still felt it a little. Amazing flavor. That's what truly surprised me about this cigar. Also, huge billows of smoke along with the flavor. I loved it. This cigar I'd save for special occasions though. It costs a little more than whats average.

"A Nice Treat"
Got a couple of these in a Best of Camacho Sampler. Smoked the first right away and the 2nd after about 30 days in the humidor. Seemed a fairly normal smoke until about the last 1/4 and this bad boy really came to life. I had trouble putting it down and smoked until I couldn't hold it anymore. Great burn, draw, smoke, and taste all the way until the--not so bitter--end. I'll get a couple 5 packs from time to time.

"Have to agree w/CharlesD"
Very nice cigar, but I have to agree w/CharlesD in that it was a bit of a let down. Not very powerful, and no real spice or kick to it. I enjoyed it...great construction and no burn issues...but was hoping for a wee bit more. Seems like it'd be a great dessert cigar due to the sweetness of the maduro, but never came close to sitting me back in my chair. Overall, a good deal from the Monster, but won't become a staple in my humi.
