When it comes to cigars, there’s no denying that, no matter where you plant your tobacco seeds, the roots often are stretching back to Cuba, trying to get a taste of that rich soil. In fact, many growers are trying to cultivate Cuban-style tobacco, using the same plants and methods, and seeking the same climate conditions or earth profile. Few succeed, but Camacho is undeniably among them.
Case in point: the Camacho Criollo cigar, which comes wrapped in an absolutely tasty Criollo wrapper that brings a lot of what makes Cuban cigars so desirable to the table. Long ago, in the Jamastran Valley in Honduras, the Camacho company found what it needed to cultivate Cuban-style tobacco and make Cuban-style cigars. In this stick, the company has really hit its stride, especially thanks to the blend of Honduran and Dominican Piloto Cubano long-fillers.
Camacho Criollo cigars are not as strong as the other offerings from Camacho, but the balanced approach has paid off. With a 92 rating and legions of fans, this one is clearly a winner. The flavors are classic Camacho – meaty leather and earthy cocoa. From the first puff, you’ll know that you’re not in Cuba, but you’re getting pretty damn close.
