Camacho has a fondness for surprising experienced and somewhat bored cigar enthusiasts.

As with most Cuban-type cigars on the market today, Camacho moved its operations from the island of Cuba after the trade embargo put an end to the export of its world-renowned tobacco products. Tino Argudin and Vuelta Abajo located a new tobacco source in the famed Jamastran Valley in Honduras, a place where Cuban-seeded plants thrive.

These beauties were made with Cuban fillers aged more than 45 years and wrapped in Corojo leaf aged more than nine. The long-time connoisseur can imagine vividly what this cigar tastes like.
