Camacho Havana H2 is one fat and powerful smoke. It's not as kick-a$$ as the Camacho Corojo Monarca, but they still are quite full-bodied. Regular cedary and spicy flavors make it a nice 40-minutes short smoke.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★½
The wrapper is quite dark and of modest quality. The cigar fits nice in hand and the band looks good.

Construction : Rating: ★★★★☆
Upsides and downsides - burn and draw. The draw is usually quite easy, I think that out of the box I never had one with a tight draw. On the other hand, there were a few pieces with an awful burn and funneling which could hardly be corrected. The chances of getting an unlucky piece are estimated (by me) at about 10%.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★½
Unlike the Corojo line, this stick is not only power. I actually like how the spicy, woody and leathery notes are blended into the Havana H2. The first third is rather peppery and very full-bodied. 10 minutes in, it's time for the cedary part - the spice disappears and it tastes almost like a nice Cuban (-almost-). In the last third, the spice is back and nice leathery flavors are added to smooth the finish.

Value : Rating: ★★★★★
Unbeatable value. Can be had for as low as $2 if you make some online research.

Overall Rating : Overall Rating: ★★★★½
A very nice price/quality ratio, pleasant flavors, decent construction. A very interesting cigar, overall. Leave it in your humidor for a few months for even better results.

  1. Spot on review. I love these, and I’m not usually partial to Camachos. A great value as well. Regards, K

  2. It was good, but I like the 1962 and the Select better in that price range.

  3. As a new fan of camacho I am going to need to check these out. Great review and the price is right.

  4. Never had this smoke is it new?

  5. Saint Jimbob says:

    While the Camacho Havanas I’ve smoked did not taste like “cat piss”, as a friend of mine once described these, I wasn’t moved to buy more beyond the pair I purchased to sample.

  6. Can’t understand why these are not available in my area–Will inquire to see what the hold up is.

  7. I always have to punch these, because if I cut it, I usually tear the cap.

    It has a nice even draw and decent smoke volume. Flavors at first are muddled as I can’t really make out anything. A couple of inches down it settles out and I get a medium-bodied woody, dry on the palate with leather and oak on the short finish.
