Camacho, the cigar connoisseur's favorite brand, gets a makeover. Camacho Diploma is one of the first releases with the new look, but rest assured all the important things stayed the same. These cigars hail from Ranchos Jamastran in Honduras, the farm and factory that is known for having an ideal climate and soil conditions that have compared to that of the coveted Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba.
One of the first things you’ll notice is the band. The new look is decidedly edgier, darker, and more mysterious. But let’s get on to the good stuff. Camacho Diploma features an Ecuador Habano 2000 wrapper that’s brimming with intoxicating scents including earth, cocoa, and sweetness. Underneath, a Honduran Corojo binder embraces a balanced blend of Honduran and Dominican long-fillers. The draw and burn are both perfectly even. Full-bodied and full-flavored, this cigar is not meant for the weak of palate. The intensity starts with the first puff, and the hearty core imparts notes of sweet coca and spice. Thick clouds of chewy smoke will surround you as you ruminate on the complexity of this mighty cigar. Delight your senses with a plethora of flavors and nuances that develop beautifully over the course of the experience. As for the makeover, all I can say is, “Bravo, Camacho.”
