Camacho American Barrel Aged
While everyone’s focused on Latin America and the Caribbean, Camacho’s over here putting together a cigar featuring bold, flavorful American tobaccos and knocking it out of the park. That’s right, this stick has leaves grown right here in the beautiful US of A. (And of course, no American-style product would be complete without bourbon. Camacho American Barrel Aged has that too.)
The outside is a nice oily Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper. “William Penn’s Woods” grow fine trees, but who knew the nearby fields were good for tobacco? Settlers, that’s who. Or at least, early tobacco farmers. Pennsylvania Broadleaf has been cultivated for many, many years. It’s nice to see a company like Camacho Cigars paying homage to one of the classic tobaccos that were part of the classic American blend.
Inside, you’ll find more delicious American Broadleaf tobaccos in the binder and filler, along with a potent 6-year aged Corojo. After rolling (we’re guessing), the cigars are then stored in bourbon barrels so that they become infused with that gorgeous brown liquor flavor. The end result is a profile with plenty of spice, but also nuttiness and a faint taste of sweet bourbon.
Camacho American Barrel Aged cigars are the first made for the company in Davidoff’s Dominican factory, instead of in the Honduras facility that has been home to Camacho for so long.
This one’s all over the map, and we love it.
