Davidoff releasing Camacho Nicaragua. But don’t be fooled by the name. With this release, the Davidoff & Camacho marketing department is using the Nicaragua name very loosely. The cigar was announced in February of this year. The cigars are shipped next month. The release date in each country varies though.


Nowadays the Nicaragua name is worth a lot in the cigar industry. Cigar lovers all over the world realize the incredible quality of Nicaraguan tobacco. In the last two decades, Nicaragua has climbed to the top of the food chain. The Nicaragua name is used more and more for marketing. And as a sign of quality.

But now much weight should you put to the Nicaragua branding of the new Camacho Nicaragua? Are the cigars made in Nicaragua? Is it a Nicaraguan Puro? Does the wrapper come Nicaraguan? Is the binder Nicaraguan? Are all the filler tobaccos Nicaraguan? The answer to these questions is the same: No. 

The cigars are produced in Honduras. The wrapper is Ecuadorian. The binder is Honduras. And the fillers are a blend of tobaccos from Honduras, Dominican Republic, and indeed, some Nicaraguan tobacco.

Sizes and more

The packaging of the Camacho Nicaragua is in line with the other Camacho Bold releases. Stylish, slick-looking boxes of twenty cigars. With beautiful rings. The packaging is top-notch. The cigars come in a 5×52 Robusto, 6×54 Toro, and a 7×58 Churchill.

“Camacho Nicaragua is for the cigar smoker who seeks distinctive Nicaragua flavor. This series was created to add depth to our Camacho Core portfolio to appeal to a wider-range of consumers’ tastes. Although bold, the blend is balanced and remarkably flavourful. In addition to Nicaraguan tobacco, tobacco from Ecuador, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic are also found in this blend adding excitement and character “, says Edward Simon, Chief Marketing Officer of Oettinger Davidoff AG.

“Camacho Nicaragua is a distinctly complex blend that provides a bold and unforgettable taste experience. The blend is well balanced and filled with spicy, earthy and oaky flavors that define tobacco from this region, complemented by notes of pepper in the retrohale and a subtle sweetness. A smoke that delivers a full-frontal, all-out flavor that rewards you at every draw,” Simon continues.
