Camacho Mike Ditka Throwback Edition

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Da Bears. I saw this cigar on shelves a couple months ago, but resisted purchasing one. Eventually, curiosity got the best of me. I only bought one, and this review is based on that alone. I’m not big on filler material, so here we go.


Wrapper: Honduras

Binder: Brazil

Filler: Dominican, Honduran, Nicaraguan

Size: 6 x 50

Price: About $10.00

Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper looked nice, and had an earthy, woody odor. There were quite a few squishy spots on the cigar, but it wasn’t drastic. The draw had some resistance, but fell within my tolerances. The pre-light flavor was a very unique citrus.

The ash held for over an inch, and the burn required a few small corrections.

The first third had an interesting melody of citrus, floral, and cedar notes. I picked up an easy cayenne pepper through the nose. After an inch or so, bitter cocoa joined in, with a hint of coffee.

The second third became sweeter, which pushed the citrus notes to the background. It reminded me of one of those foo foo coffee/chocolate drinks, available at your local Starbucks. This isn’t an insult. I admit it, I like those foo-foo drinks, I just don’t drink them. The pepper was smooth, with just the right amount of zing.

By the time I got into the last third, everything was focused on chocolate and coffee. An added peppery, cinnamon zing made a nice aftertaste.

This was a very good medium to upper medium bodied cigar. I couldn’t care less about the Ditka collaboration with Camacho, but I can’t argue that this cigar delivers where it counts. There is nothing bad to say here. If you have a chance, this is worth trying. I will get more if I have the chance.
