I had this last night in the short figurado size at Highland Cigar company. Off the top, the cigar has a robust appearance with both ends being pointed. Really interesting cold draw – almost bread and leather.
Upon lighting up I was hit instantly with soft notes of leather and spice, not quite a strong black pepper flavor, but something more refined.
The cigar lasted for about an hour, having both a good, solid draw that produced a decent amount of ash gray smoke, and an even burn line. Flavors were pretty consistent throughout the entire cigar, no real variance from one section to another. I’d look to see that in the larger sizes.
I’m still not a fan of the larger gaudy bands Camacho uses but this one does fit.
Overall, a solid new release from Camacho.
