Camacho Corojo Monarca must be one of the most full-bodied cigars that I ever smoked. Its power is simply overwhelming, this toy might easily knock you down. Fine construction most of the time and the looks are also satisfying. A decent cigar overall.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★☆
Pretty good-looking. The wrapper could have been less veiny. I liked the modest band.

Construction : Rating: ★★★★½
I was impressed by the amounts of smoke the Monarca produced – this is simply incredible. I highly recommend smoking it outside, because you never know what your neighbours might think. At first inspection, it seems like the cigar is loosely rolled. However, it doesn’t affect the smoking experience at all. Monarca burns nicely, you won’t be disappointed by the ash neither.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★☆
I think that the guys at Camacho went for the power instead of the flavor. This is actually the first thing that comes to mind after smoking the Corojo Monarcayay, that was a powerful cigar! A few seconds later, I’m reminded of heavy, earthy flavors, with a little occasional sweetness. I’m confident that this is a ‘hit or miss’ cigar.

Value : Rating: ★★★★☆
At $5/stick, it’s a decent buy, especially if you’re in love with full-bodied smokes – in this case, you cannot afford missing this one.

Overall Rating : Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
This Camacho is aimed at veteran smokers who are used to full-strength cigars. Obviously, if you prefer milder smokes, the Corojo Monarca is not your best choice.

  1. Saint Jimbob says:

    The Camacho Corojo maduro is a staple in my humidor, as the maduro wrapper adds some spicy sweet to the corojo heat.

  2. This is a very full bodied smoke. Use caution. Do not smoke on an empty stomach.

  3. I have two of these sitting in my humi. I am looking forward to them. I have had two camacho cigars in the last few months and have loved them. They snagged me as a fan with the triple maduro…

  4. I have only tried a few of these and are pretty good and you do need a full stomach by the way–Not really sure on this one–O K I guess

  5. I just like to say “Camacho.”

    ca-MA’-cho. Good name. I’ve already forgotten which are the new Black Band cigars (Room 101?).

  6. My favorite cigar. It never disappoints.

  7. Got one of these in the mail the other week as part of a Camacho promotion. After letting it rest for a week, I lit it up Sunday afternoon and was pleased with the quality of construction, smoke volume, and deep dark flavor.

    I didn’t get hit with much of a power, but my full stomach probably had something to do with that.

    Good cigar, my first Camacho and not my last.

  8. My Review of the Camacho Corojo Diploma Maduro

    This is a gorgeous cigar beautifully constructed and wrapped in an oily dark cocoa brown corojo wrapper. It burned razor sharp with a dark firm ash. It started off with a fantastic coffee bean flavor with pepper and leather on the finish. During the last third of the smoke the coffee bean gave way to a more wood/cedar flavor. It is a very full bodied smoke that packs a nice punch with a strong buzz factor. If you enjoy a strong full bodied cigar this one is for you. It is a decadent smoke that left me feeling like I just finished a big meal.

  9. Nice. Good luck everyone.
