Those who know Camacho cigars know that the company is very loyal to their Honduran soil. In fact, a number of their offerings are Honduran puros, meaning that the wrapper, binder, and filler leaf are all grown in Honduras. In an era of experimental blends and innovative combinations that sometimes span the globe, this is almost unheard of.
However, with recent efforts to rebrand and refresh Camacho’s cigar portfolio, new ground has been broken. In this case, there are a number of non-Honduran tobaccos included. The Camacho Ecuador cigar features a flavorful Ecuadorian Habano wrapper leaf. Inside, there’s a Brazilian Mata Fina binder, which fans of the Drew Estate Liga Privada No. 9 will know quite well. The blend is powered inside by a core of long fillers from Honduras and that includes Dominican Pelo de Oro ligero.
The result is quite fine, offering a wealth of flavor, medium to full body smoke, and a nice long finish. The Camacho Ecuador cigar has been reported to taste like pepper (par for the course with Camacho), but also chocolate, graham cracker, and light floral and citrus notes. Cigar Aficionado has given it as high as a 91 rating, noting the intriguing dessert aromas and attractive look of the cigar.
