CA Report: Top New Cigars (June 22 2020)

Father’s Day is over. But summer has only just begun! And with the sun waiting until 8:30 to slip below the horizon, we’ve got plenty of daylight. Social restrictions – they’ve started to soften too, so there are plenty of reasons to start stockpiling new cigars. And wouldn’t you know it…three solid freshies from Cohiba, Drew Estate, and Camacho just landed at Famous for your tasting pleasure.

If you’re able, we hope that you get out there safely and smoke what you love. I’ve got a feeling this trio will all make your list. Here’s to a smoky return to normalcy!

Have you been smoking anything new lately? We’d love to hear from you. Hit us up in the comments below!

Camacho Liberty 2020

Wrapper: Ecuador Habano
Binder: Honduras Corojo
Filler: Honduras and Dominican Republic Corojo

Let’s be honest. The only thing you love setting fire to more than fireworks is a cigar. When the guests have gone home, and all that’s left is a cooler filled with icy beers – that’s the time to light this one! Camacho Liberty 2020 is the latest in an annual series that comes out just in time for the 4th of July. It’s spicy, peppery, and smokes sweet with notes of wood, earth, and even a hint of citrus. This is one fuse that burns long into the night…and the best excuse to save cleanup until morning.

Puros Huerfanos by Drew Estate

Wrapper: Ecuador Habano
Binder: Indonesia
Filler: Proprietary

The Puros Huerfanos ‘cigar orphans’ are back with a brand-new blend. What’s their deal, you ask? These Drew Estate smokes are overruns. Of what…we’re not sure, but the flavors speak for themselves. Nuances of wood, nuts, leather, earth, and spices are prevalent throughout its medium-bodied smoke. And the price is as killer as they come. If you’re looking for top shelf smokes at a bottom-shelf price, your humidor is a place Puros Huerfanos can call home.

Cohiba Royale

Wrapper: Nicaragua Jalapa Broadleaf
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler: Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua

Adorned in ornate, decidedly Cohiba-style packaging, Cohiba Royale is the latest stick to come from the masters of the luxury cigar game. And though it’s a bit on the pricier side, maybe this is the way you can treat yourself if COVID-19 ixnayed your summer vacation plans. Royale’s flavors are bready, woody, and slightly tart-n-tangy. Additionally, it’s got just the right amount of spice to balance things out.
