Review Notes: Everything about the appearance of this huge cigar is eye-cathcing, from its curvy shape to the nice wrapper to the tissue paper and foil packaging. However, the construction is problematic: it has a loose draw and an inconsistent burn that needs plenty of relighting. I would attribute these problems to the unusual shape, but I've had similar problems with other Camachos that I've tried. Flavorwise, it's very peppery at the start, but turns into a smooth and balanced smoke filled with wood, nuts and coffee with an underlying spicy sweetness. A significant buzz does sneak up on you. It's a decent value as there's plenty of cigar, but I wish it could have performed better. No. 18 in Cigar Aficionado's top 25 cigars of 2005.
