    Nice review thanks! I have a 2008 but I haven’t smoked it yet.

    Maybe the attention that should have been places on the cigar’s construction went into the detail of the box and bands.

    Looking forward to torching the one that I do have—Webby hooked me up with an 07 some time back and really liked it-the price of this blend should be excellent and Camacho will hopefully do something about it-nice review!

    My Review of the Camacho Liberty 2006

    This has been one of my favorites over time, but one I did not enjoy that much when they came out as I thought the potent filler overwhelmed the spicy sweetness of the Cameroon wrapper.

    The wrapper has a beautiful oily sheen to it, along with the requisite tooth that is a characteristic to Cameroon leaf.

    The draw was nice and easy, but almost immediately after lighting, the burn started to canoe. camacholiberty06

    Flavor-wise, I actually noticed the Cameroon flavors right away, which was different than what I experienced when these first came out. I was greeted with sweet and spicy cinnamon with a hint of cocoa and licorice.

    As I was nursing the burn back even, the licorice flavors intensified and this really started to get good!

    The last third was delicious: Cocoa, coffee and licorice oh my!

    It was a little dry on the finish, but that’s kind of a Cameroon thing, and the cigar was dangerously close to “overheating” a few times, but I really enjoyed it! I can’t give it as high of a score as I want to as the construction and heat issues need to be subtracted from the overall score.

    My Review of the Camacho Liberty 2005

    These are interestingly shaped cigars; they are the traditional Camacho 11/18 shape, which is a bulbous perfecto without the pointed ends. The Liberties also are supposed to have pre-embargo Cuban tobacco in them, but I’m sure only in little “sprinkles”. The wrapper is very, very dark which makes you think this will be a strong cigar, but most Liberty blends are smoother and a little less spicy than it’s Corojo cousin.

    This dark rich looking cigar starts very unassuming, mellow Honduran earthiness with a touch of wood. I am drinking a glass of one of my favorite single-malts, Isle of Jura, when about an inch down it really opens up. I’m not sure if it was just it’s time or the scotch but I am suddenly greeted by rich mocha flavors and a subtle spice on the sides of my tongue.

    (By the way, if you have not yet tried Isle of Jura yet and you like single-malts, do yourself a favor!)

    As I was enjoying in the deluge of flavors I noticed the draw start to give way… too much. I looked down the foot of the cigar and sure enough I had a tunnel. This occurred when the tapered end opened up to the largest part of the cigar, proving how difficult these shapes are to roll.

    The tunneling was short-lived but heated the cigar up enough to produce some sour flavors. It quickly righted itself and was again generous with coffee and cocoa. The spice disappeared for a while but came back as I reached the last quarter. The last 1/4 was robust and spicy: pepper, mocha and wood were all prominent.

    Overall, this was a good cigar, but the tunneling really detracted from my overall enjoyment.
