I ve always loved the taste of Camacho smokes, but found them just a tad too strong to really enjoy. This blend, however, starts off mild and slowly builds to a strong finish. This is the first cigar I ve had the REALLY slowly builds from mild tobacco flavor, through cedar to a nice pepper taste. I ll be buying a box of these for sure, and can t recommend them enough!
I am new to smoking cigars as an enthusiast, but coming across the Camacho Criollo I finally felt impressed and had something thought worth sharing. It Iit evenly at the foot and burned consistently until about the last third where I eventually called it quits. Obviously it got stronger, but wasn t overwhelming. It had flavorful pepper and spice notes and paired well with Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey. For a beginner & casual smoker, the price was right and I plan on giving it another try.
I usually frown upon samplers I get for free. I've never enjoyed them. This is the first time I ordered a box after tasting a sampler. This time I just could not believe I got a winner. All around: Aroma before lighting, after lighting and throughout smoking it down to the end.
I have seen some lack luster reviews on this blend but I think it?s because it isn?t able to really shine with the smaller vitolas.That is NOT the case with the Churchill?s. This cigar starts with an intense spice, which can be a lot of fun to smoke through, then starting somewhere about 1/3 to 1/2 way the real magic begins. Like the most delicious buttery cocoa, and all the intensity Camacho is known for! This has easily become one of my favorites...For reference, some of my favorites are Guardian of the farm & Ashton Symmetry.
These replace the venerable Camacho Corojo my absolute favorite for 12 years. While the new owners retain the same basic taste the construction now leaves a lot to be desired. I have cut a few of these apart after having draw issues and have found 30% stems some 4 or more in length which explains poor burning and occasionally I get one that drips tar you can wipe it off the tip . But that said still a good smoke just wish the quality would return to previous level before Davidoff took over
No flavor in the first quarter, just tabaco, draw is ok. Flat. No favorite at this time.
