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.

Size : 6.0″ x 54
Wrapper : 3rd priming Habano-seed Criollo
Filler : Honduran Cuban-seed long-leaf tobaccos
Binder : Honduras

Price : $7 each

Camacho has made a name for itself among lovers of strong, robust smokes. Their name is synonymous with powerhouse smokes but the truth is they have put out a few select cigars that are a bit more accessible to novice cigar smokers and those who enjoy a more refined smoke with less punch. The Camacho Select comes to mind as a prime example of a medium bodied Camacho. I’m giving a bit away at the start here to say the 1962 is another one of Camachos medium bodied offerings. The Camacho 1962 was made to commemorate the year that Julio Eiroa began his journey in cigar making after fleeing Castro’s post revolutionary Cuba.

Camacho Select is supposed to be different from other Camacho cigars, especially in strength. It sports a Cameroon wrapper, is blended by Julio Eiroa (father of the current Camacho president, Christian) and produced at Tabacos Rancho Jamastran in Honduras. I found the Torpedo to be superior than the Robusto. You might also want to try the Super Robusto (see Matt's comment below).

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.

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.
