Any company that’s been around for as long as Camacho has tends to figure out a few things and gain a few fans along the way. But not all manage to crack Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 List – that’s reserved for cigars that truly are the cream of the crop.
Meet the Camacho Corojo cigar, Cigar Aficionado’s Number 5 cigar of 2010, sporting a 94 rating and offering some of the richest flavors you can find in Honduran-grown tobacco. The Camacho Corojo is a truly top-shelf smoke and one that any Camacho cigars fan definitely has to grab for the humidor.
It wasn’t easy making this one. Corojo doesn’t grow that well in all conditions, even when using traditional Cuban seeds. It can be somewhat fragile and vulnerable to crop disease. Nestled in the Jamastran Valley in Honduras, Camacho has found a way to get a super nice crop of Corojo going. This cigar in particular features all Corojo leaves grown in Honduras, from the fifth-priming Corojo wrapper through to the filler.
Yes, folks, it’s a puro, and that’s why it’s so fine.
The smoke itself is medium to full bodied, with potent flavors of rich leather, earthy woods, and sweet dark fruit. The Camacho Corojo cigar is absolutely exquisite and satisfying from the first puff to the last. If you’re ready for Camacho’s best, we’ve got a box for you!
