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.
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
