Tatuaje Avion 12 Cigar Review

Size does matter. Tatuaje’s Fausto line is becoming one of my favorite line of cigars with the Fausto Avion 11 being my favorite cigar of all time – by far. I gave that cigar 98 points and I would still give that cigar that high of a score. It just fits right into my preferred […]

Camacho Connecticut Figurado Cigar Review

Here is a review from Mike’s Cigars of the brand new Camacho Connecticut.

Camacho Cigars has recently introduced a new Connecticut wrapper cigar under the name Camacho Connecticut. The new cigar features an unusual blend for Camacho, a company which established its name making bold, full and rich cigars.

Christian Eiroa said that the new line opens the Camacho gates to consumers who prefer a milder smoke: “People were afraid to smoke our cigars but with the new medium bodied Connecticut it is a whole different story.” Milder, indeed. Having been known for their cigars’ powerfully intense smokes, Camacho has taken a giant step forward with their new medium-bodied Connecticut line.

The Camacho Connecticut sports an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Honduran Corojo binder, and Honduran and Dominican filler tobaccos. There are six sizes in the line: Monarca (5 x 50); Toro (6 x 50); Churchill (7 x 48); Figurado (6 1/8 x 54); 11/18 (6×54); and 60/6 (6×60). I tried the Camacho Connecticut Figurado and it truly lived up to its potential. Significantly lighter than previous Camachos, this really is a groundbreaking cigar.

Lite-r Light!

The cigar starts slow and chewy but opens up quickly, with an easy draw and full volume of thick white smoke. The construction is good and the cigar stays lit even for a long duration of ashtray parking, a definite 9 in my book. Medium in body, but savory and rich, the new Camacho Connecticut Figurado tastes of cedar and leather and a delicate touch of macadamia. The aromatic flavors gently open a new world for Camacho.

Travis’ Take: I have yet had the opportunity to smoke this cigar, will be ordering some from Mike’s Cigars soon but, as far as I can tell, it looks like a good move for Camacho. I was looking at some of the other cigar bloggers and the Camacho Connecticut has gotten some mixed reviews but none that are truly negative. This is a cigar that I will be trying – definitely.

Man O’ War Torpedo – Cigar Review

Travis smoked a Man O’ War for the first time. Right off the bat it looks like it should be a great cigar. The band has a menacing Spartan-looking mask with two short swords. It is a maduro figurado and has been touted as being very strong. But is it?

It is a decent cigar but has some problems with it. While it is an interesting smoke right now it should probably be left in the humidor for a little while so that the flavors can better mesh with each other. As it stands right now this cigar isn’t a great cigar (90-95 points) but it is a good cigar with some upside.
