Camacho Cigars have long been recognized for
capturing the essence of the Golden Age of Cuban cigars from times gone by. Now
Camacho has done more than capture that essence, they have actually captured
pre-embargo Cuban tobacco! Small amounts of the precious leaves have been
blended with superior Central American tobaccos to create an unforgettable
The Camacho Pre-Embargo is a dashing 6” x 48 Toro
lavishly adorned with a Jamastran Corojo 99 wrapper leaf. Underneath lush
Honduran tobaccos are built around a pre-embargo crop from 1962 creating a
rich, divinely smooth smoke that will ignite visions of ocean-side cabanas,
dark rum and dancing the rhumba into the wee hours of the morning.
Once this over an hour excursion begins, thick
earth, leather and spice flavors swirl across the palate while cocoa, nut and wood
notes prance about the taste-buds with mischievous joy. What begins a
medium-bodied smoke will develop more body on the final stretch adding an incredibly
complex depth that leads to a long-lasting and immensely satisfying finish.
The Camacho Pre-Embargo cigar is indeed a rare
breed that is an absolute must for any cigar-loving connoisseur, not only
because it is infused with true Cuban tobacco, but because it is simply a great
cigar. Don’t wait to get your Pre-Embargo cigar! Once the pre-embargo tobacco
is gone, these beauties will fade into legend.
