    Camacho Havana H2

    CamachoOrigin : Honduras
    Format : Robusto
    Size : 114 x 20 mm
    Ring : 50
    Wrapper : Honduras
    Filler : Honduras
    Binder : Honduras
    Price : ~$3 each

    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:4.5/5]
    The wrapper is quite dark and of modest quality. The cigar fits nice in hand and the band looks good.

    Construction : [rating:4/5]
    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:4.5/5]
    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:5/5]
    Unbeatable value. Can be had for as low as $2 if you make some online research.

    Overall Rating : [rating:overall/5]
    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.

      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.

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

      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.

      Never had this smoke is it new?

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

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

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