For the cigar, the Camacho blenders found inspiration in the powerful V-twin motorcycle engine. They developed a bunching method to deliver surges of revved-up flavor and potency while keeping things even and balanced. Davidoff stated that it’s actually the combination of two bunching methods that work in unison to produce the most significant burn and airflow with just the right amount of resistance.
You’ll find a chocolate syrup brown Ecuadorian Habano 2000 wrapper leaf on the outside of Camacho Powerband cigars. Under this leaf are two Mexican San Andrés Negrito binders. Next comes an incredible core blend of five filler tobaccos. We have three full bodied ligeros— Corojo from Honduras and Nicaragua, and Dominican San Vicente ligero. Dominican Republic Piloto Cubano and San Vicente Viso make up the remainder of the blend.
Since the leaves of the Nicaragua and Honduran Corojo Ligero's tip outward, the stick has a forceful start, much like revving a motorcycle. Corojo is not the easiest crop to grow. It’s often fragile and susceptible to disease. Many farmers will share tragic stories of losing most if not all of a season’s crop. Camacho has a fine bounty of Corojo crop in the Honduran Jamastran Valley for the Honduran portion of this blend. For the Nicaraguan portion, Corojo grows nicely in the fertile Jalapa region of that country.
After that forceful start and the first third, the intensity drops, and the performance reaches an apex. After this apex, the cigar revs up to its highest level of flavor and intensity. The idea is to capture the adrenaline rush, acceleration, and wave of endorphins one feels cutting the air while riding a V-twin motorcycle. Once you kickstart the Powerband, you’re treated to flavors of smokey wood, black coffee, red pepper, and maple syrup.
If you’re a motorcycle person, you’re going to love the band here. It’s black with a white “V” for the engine. Above the “V” is the Camacho scorpion, and below the “V” it reads, “The power and muscle of a classic V-twin engine.” Another cool motorcycle lingo like “rush of adrenaline” and “spark to exhaust” also decorates the band.
Grab your leathers, boys. We ride at dawn.
