As I sit here earnestly smoking an Arturo Fuente Short Story I realize that now is the time to do another Top 10. It was just a year ago when I published my first Top 10 and much has changed in the world. Instead of getting philosophical and patter on about this or that I’m […]
About a year ago I did a Short Cigar Review on one of these and I gave it the most points possible, five points. That doesn’t mean I think it’s perfect but it is one of those cigars that I really think every cigar smoker should try. The Camacho Coyolar is extremely flavorful with pretty […]
Pre-Smoke: It’s a Camacho. Need I say more?
It’s oily and the wrapper looks perfect. Dark wrapper with no raised veins or imperfections. The only minor problem is that it feels a little soft near the foot of the cigar.
What, you may be thinking, does Coyolar mean? In short, it’s the name of the farm where all the tobacco for this line of cigars is grown. The Coyolar farm is located in Honduras. I am smoking the Rothschild (robusto) vitola.
Smoke: The first thing that I notice is that it has loads of flavor and absolutely coats my mouth with awesome array of flavors. Ranging from warm cocoa to meat to a screeching spice that is as brilliant as it is brief, only coming at the apex of the retrohale. Tons of smoke as well.
At first I was not impressed by its strength but, boy, it is full bodied. It’s a strength that builds up slowly as you smoke this Camacho. The draw is perhaps a little tight but does not interfere with the cigar in the slightest. The burn is perfect.
There is an occasional sweet note. Coffee is the predominant flavor in the aftertaste.
After-Smoke: This is an impressive cigar. It has tons of flavor, some kick to it and it smokes very well. Definitely a keeper.
Price Range: $4.75 – $6.75
