Just before the IPCPR trade show in 2013, Camacho Cigars launched an aggressive makeover of their line in a campaign they called the “bold standard.” While a complete re-branding has been part of this campaign, the changes in Camacho’s lines are more than band-deep. The blends have also been consolidated and transformed, with Camacho choosing to focus on just seven different cigar lines (excluding special & limited editions). Camacho Criollo is one of those regular lines, available in seven different sizes: Robusto, Corona, Toro, Figurado, Gigante, Churchill, and Robusto Tubos. I had the chance to try the Camacho Criollo Corona.

This week's review is over a quite popular brand of cigar. Camacho is one of the most sought after Honduran cigar brands on the market.

Camacho cigars was founded in 1961 by Simon Camacho and acquired by the Eiroa family in 1995. In October 2008, the brand become part of the Oettinger Davidoff Group. A few months ago, the whole line of Camacho cigars was rebranded / reblended, in the process some of the well-known blends were discontinued, such as Coyolar or Select. Other lines were not only reblended, but also renamed - this is the case with the Havana. It is now called Criollo. Today's review is for the Camacho Havana Figurado, which was bought before the reblending.

For some reason, over the last year, I have ignored the Room 101 brand at my local B&M even though they came highly recommended from the store manager. To me, a cigar blended by Camacho (Eiroa family) didn’t sound appealing since, truthfully, I never really cared much for them. Camacho’s have always been lackluster but very serviceable cigars. Somehow, Matt Booth, the head of Room 101, has teamed with the Eiroas and squeezed what seems to be the best thing I have smoked out of that factory. Check out below what makes this partnership so great.

Up for review this time is the much acclaimed Camacho Triple Maduro. In typical American style if something is good, more of it must be better. So this cigar became the first to sport all Honduran Maduro tobacco. I smoked the 11/18 which tapers at the head and foot of the cigar.

Every summer since 2002, Christian Eiroa releases a special summer cigar in the Liberty brand. The Camacho Liberty 2009 was released in July of 2009, and only 40,000 of these were made. The filler and binder are grown in the Eiroa’s farm in Jamastran, Honduras. For those lucky enough to have a cigar from each release, this would be an interesting comparison among all of them. This is my first experience with the Liberty brand.

When I first heard that Davidoff was purchasing Camacho Cigars, this cigar was the first thing that popped into my head. Davidoff and Camacho cigars had always occupied opposite ends of the spectrum. Everything Camacho put out under the brand name Camacho was a powerhouse cigar. All of their lines were robust, full-bodied smokes that tried to kick you in the gut. I know that they have milder offerings under different banners like Baccarat and La Fontana, but anything labeled Camacho was going to be a monster. SO when the announcement of the purchase became public, I immediately though to myself, “What would happen if Davidoff and Camacho got together and had a baby?” I said to myself a Camacho with a Connecticut wrapper and Dominican tobacco in the filler. Can you imagine! A Camacho with that makeup? And then a short while later we hear about the Camacho Connecticut which is exactly the cigar I predicted. Now I don’t pretend that I had any great insight or any special talent in predicting what’s next in the cigar industry. Truth is a lot of people I have talked with had the exact same thoughts I did. It was easy to see this coming. SO I want to know, what exactly does a Camacho that uses a Connecticut Shade wrapper and Dominican tobacco taste like.

The Camacho Coyolar is a line that I seem to revisit a couple of times per year. I tend to acquire them in random ways like gifts from friends or box passes. Anyway, I've had one sitting in my humidor for a while now and felt it was time for a formal review of this cigar. This line is billed as an extra full-bodied, knock you on your ass cigar. I recall when they were first released in 2005; I was working in a tobacco store and nobody knew anything about the blend or what the cigar was called. Camacho had kept most information on this brand secret. It was rumored at the time to be called the "Say Uncle," and sold quite well.
