Camacho Corojo Maduro

Friday, March 4th, 2011

It’s been awhile since I smoked a Camacho cigar. When I saw these at a local cigar shop, I couldn’t resist picking some up to review. This cigar boasts itself as the only Corojo wrapper, binder, and filler. So without further ado… My thoughts on the Camacho Corojo Maduro.


Wrapper: Honduras

Binder & Filler: Honduras

Size: Toro 6 x 50

Price: Around $6.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The dark wrapper looked good, although it did have some flaws. I noticed a couple of pin holes, some rugged spots, and maybe even a small patch. This is all cosmetic and didn’t really concern me. The wrapper had a barnyard odor, and the foot had a sweet earthy tobacco smell. There were quite a few hard and soft spots throughout the cigar, but nothing drastic. The pre-light draw was free, and had a dark earthy natural tobacco taste.

The burn got a little wavy, but I never had to correct it. The ash held for about an inch.



The first third opened up with simple earthy and natural tobacco flavors. Somewhere in the mix was a woodiness. Through the nose, there was pepper with some punch. The smoke feel was dry, and I found myself craving water quite a bit. The flavors were not bad, but they seemed unbalanced and one dimensional.


The second third had those earthy, woody flavors, with an added sweetness. The sweetness was generic, it didn’t resemble any food item I am aware of. The pepper mellowed out a little and became smoother. It was a combination of pepper and wood basically. Overall, the flavors came together well in this third. It felt balanced and well defined. The smoke feel became less dry and boarded on being creamy.


The last third, like before, kept the same core flavors. The spice went down another notch in terms of strength, and had a woody/sweet aftertaste. A tingle was left in the mouth and on the lips, and the smoke feel still boarded on being creamy. It was pretty much like the second third, so I won’t waste your time repeating myself.



This was a decent medium to full bodied cigar. Initially it wasn’t very impressive. Once the second third came around, I found myself enjoying this stick more. I think it meets it’s price point without argument. As I often say… You should be the final judge. As for me, in the end I thought it was decent.
