The brand would continue to change hands until it ultimately ended up with the Eiroa family and Sal Fontana, with production taking place at the Camacho factory in Honduras. In 2008 Davidoff would buy the brand, though it would continue to be produced in the same soils by the same capable, trusted hands.
Baccarat Candela cigars combine aged Honduran tobaccos with a Mexican binder and Candela wrapper for a new twist on a beloved classic. The releases of Candelas are severely limited, so if you want your Baccarat Original friends to double-take in awe at your wild green version, better grab them while you can.
The wrapper has a smooth feel with a bit of oil to it. The veins are minimal and most likely only apparent due to the stick’s green hue. All and all these Baccarat Candela cigars are well made. The pre-light wrapper aroma is earth and fresh-cut grass. On the cold draw, we’re getting sweetness and grass.
We get one burning, and the first flavors we pick up are sweetness, grass, spice, earth, and light pepper. The rest of the first third continues with these flavors, with the sweetness shining through. During the second third, that spicy note is coming into its own, and the sweetness is still quite present. The other flavors are still there, though distant. This sweet and spicy dance continues to the nub.
Baccarat Candela cigars have an excellent, thick, consistent smoke production. The draw is on point, and the burn line was so perfect that it looked painted on there.
We’re not saying it’s impossible, but finding a quality cigar like a Baccarat at this price would be challenging.
Please enjoy Baccarat Candela cigars at your leisure.
