Review Notes: After my last review of this cigar I won an auction on a 5-pack. They rested for about 3 weeks in my humidor. This afternoon I broke one out. Everything that was wrong in my past review like being under-filled and a dry-ish wrapper was perfect on this cigar. For all practical purposes this was a perfect cigar, if such a thing exists. It was perfect for me anyway. An amazing cigar and an amazing experience. I've never seen better construction or appearance, but the flavor was indescribable, ever so smooth and balanced. The stick was so packed full of tobacco I was afraid it wouldn't draw. Yet the draw was perfect (I can't help using that word here). The ash was so white in contrast to the medium brown, oily wrapper that it made the experience even better (something I never really appreciated before). The burn was slow, well over an hour, and razor-sharp. Move over DPG and Rocky Patel - I have a new favorite. A "wow" cigar and after over 60 reviews my first 10 rated stick. I will order a box right away.

"Surprised me"

Review Notes: This is the last Corojo from a sampler I got about a year and a half ago (old wrapper). The others were harsh and too peppery for me, but I smoked those right away. A little rest has really mellowed this one. The wrapper looks more dry than oily, and it feels just a tad under-filled. It did go out once early in the smoke. That doesn't take away from the excellent taste and aroma. After the initial lite I tasted freshly baked bread and nuts, a wonderful surprise. By the end of the first third it's more woody with a sweet finish, but the bread is still there in the background. The ash is firm and the burn is sharp and even with an excellent draw. Midway I taste a sweet spice on the front of my tongue and the inside of my lips. This is the most dramatic effect age has had on a cigar for me. I've had much older cigars, but I mean this baby improved tremendously in only a short time. Up until now my impression of Camacho is their emphasis on strength with flavor an afterthought. But the flavor is the best thing about this cigar. Clearly they're working with high quality tobacco. I need to rethink my opinion of Camacho. Later there's some mild pepper with a woody taste, perhaps cedar. Even down to the nub there's no bitterness, just sweet Corojo flavor. An excellent smoking experience. Perhaps I need to get a box to put away for a few years.
