Camacho Select Short Cigar Review

September 3, 2009 · Posted in Asides, Short Cigar Review 

Pre-Smoke: This is part of the upper echelon of the Camacho lines; ultra premium is its designation. According to the Camacho Select page this cigar comes in five different vitolas with the binder/filler tobaccos hailing from Honduras and the wrapper picked in Cameroon.

This cigar has a couple of raised veins but, other than that, it looks perfectly fine. Not overly oily and the wrapper feels fuzzy, like velvet. Packed nicely. I’m smoking the robusto vitola.

Smoke: The flavors start out meaty and leathery. There is also a smokiness about this cigar that works out really well with the meatiness. After an inch or so a charcoal flavor begins to dominate.

It is a medium bodied cigar with a good draw. The burn is not even though.

After-Smoke: It was not that impressive of a cigar. The flavors are alright but any chance of me liking it a lot was dashed by the uneven burn and the charcoal flavors that came on too strong.

3 points

Price Range: $6.00 to $8.50

    Smoking another one of these right now and it's pretty much just like the last one with one major exception: the charcoal flavor is not showing up, which is great. The meat, leather and smokiness is still there in about the same mixture as before.

    Instead of the charcoal a sweet flavor is there. It's not a major flavor but it is definitely there.

    Near the end of the cigar the charcoal does make an appearance but it is not as troubling as it was with the last cigar. I would still give this cigar 3 points.
