CA Report: Top New Cigars (September 19, 2022)

Reading Time: 3 minutes

September 2022’s latest cigar releases!

Nothing says September like an early mall Christmas. Few things are worse than walking around to Jingle Bells when it’s still 80 degrees. I just needed a new pair of shoes!

Yet, soon enough, we’ll be dusting off our rakes and leaf blowers to fend off an endless cascade of fallen leaves. It’s hard work that, once finished, calls for a fantastic cigar. And maybe a stiff drink (or two…or six). Lucky for you, there are three new cigars fresh at Famous Smoke Shop—all from big names: Macanudo, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, and Camacho. See them reviewed below!

Bonus tip: cooler September evenings let you grill steaks and burgers outside without feeling like you’re standing on the sun. Make your post yardwork smoke even better with some greasy goodness.

Which recently released cigars have you been smoking? Let us know in the comments below!


Macanudo Jamao

Wrapper: Dominican Republic Habano
Binder: Honduras
Dominican Republic, Honduras, & Nicaragua

cigar advisor top new cigars 9-19-2022 - macanudo jamao at famous smoke shopNamed for a Brangelina-like combination of Honduras’ Jamastran Valley and the Mao region of the Dominican Republic, Inspirado Jamao continues Macanudo’s bold evolution into a more modern cigar brand. I found Jamao’s flavors to be lightly spicy with decadent layers of coffee, caramel, and earth. Additionally, a chewy finish that tastes of almonds. Jamao’s medium-bodied character makes it exceptionally accessible to virtually any smoker. Especially newbies who are looking to graduate from their mellower beginnings.  


Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Umbagog Churchill (New Size!)

Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Binder: Nicaragua

cigar advisor top new cigars 9-19-2022 - dunbarton tobacco & trust umbagog churchill at famous smoke shopWe sure love our Mi Querida cigars over here…but what we don’t always love, is the price. Steve Saka fixed all that with Umbagog. The blend is the same, except that the Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers used didn’t pass certain visual quality tests. They taste the same but are a little rough around the edges. Your taste buds—they won’t be able to tell at all. Your wallet, however…it’ll notice.

Now in a new 7” x 50 Churchill size, Umbagog burns even longer. Perfect for long, lazy days plucking a few steelhead out of the river. And at its price, you can share some with your fishing buddies.


Camacho Triple Maduro Toro (New Size!)

Wrapper: Mexican San Andres Maduro
Binder: Corojo Maduro
Honduras, Dominican Republic, & Brazil (all Maduro)

cigar advisor top new cigars 9-19-2022 - camacho triple maduro toro at famous smoke shopFans of the dark leaf…Camacho Triple Maduro is your calling. Well-fermented leaves make up the wrapper, binder, and filler tobaccos of this blend, giving Triple Maduro a remarkably sweet, earthy flavor that oozes notes of cocoa, coffee, and punchy spices. What’s new here is the size—a popular Toro that’s long, but not too long. Expect to nub a few while watching game Sunday…and be talking about them well into Monday morning.

The Umbagog Churchill isn’t new and is being discontinued (along with the “Short & Fat”).

Hey, Pete. We saw that news, too. The Churchill size was new to Famous so we wanted to get the word out on it for anyone who was looking for it. Thanks for reading!
