Behind The Stick:
Here comes the first Camacho cigar review for this site, and I gotta say, they did this one right. I had received this cigar from Dylan Austin (@dylanaustin on twitter) as a five pack for doing one of the many contests he runs through twitter. I am sure we have all heard about the Room 101 Cigar line, and if you check out this site often you have seen more than one time where I’ve mentioned how I can’t wait to try these, well I ended up putting up a post of Matt Booth’s new line, and presto – Here comes some Camacho Triple Maduro’s. Although the name implies three, there are actually five different blends of maduro leaves that are wrapped together to make this specific cigar.
This is one of the first Camacho cigars I have ever had, and I can not deny the fact that they create some flawless smokes. Perfectly packed from head to foot, adorned with a large and bright silver main band an adorned with a matching foot band, the dark brown – almost black – oily wrapper reaches out to even the newest of smokers. I had no issues with the construction, and as well the ash held for roughly an inch.
This is one of those cigars that starts off with a defined flavor but slowly collects other notes that come and go. Once the flame began on the end of this smoke, strong flavors of coffee and wood coated my taste buds. Once the cigar had a chance to build up some heat the wood notes gave way to chocolate, there is no mistake in this. The body picked up from medium to full, large amount of smoke and a thick, cream type sensation to the release of smoke was intense to say the least. Mild pepper on the retrohale gave a good change of pace, but sweet, chocolate and coffee lead this smoke from middle to end.
These were some good smokes, these burned well and had good, distinct flavor. I personally am not a huge sweets person, never have been. I thought more than once, this really tastes like a candy bar mixed with tobacco. It was not a bad sensation, but for just under $10.00 a stick I’m not going to lose sleep over not having one in my humidor. If I find one at the store for a reasonable price I will grab a pair without a doubt. If your a fan of a sweeter cigar, I think you will find this cigar to be spot on.
