It’s getting a bit chillier out there (unless you’re in Florida), and there’s no better way to warm up than with a great cigar and your favorite beverage.  To help broaden your horizons in terms of options, here are cigar reviews of the Camacho Corojo New Blend and the J. Fuego Connoisseur.

Camacho Corojo New Blend Robusto

Camacho Cigars wanted a new start in 2013, so they decided to achieve that through a complete rebranding and repackaging of their stogies.  While they’ve certainly gone bold with their color schemes and other aesthetic improvements, the brand announced that they’d also be changing up some of their blends to become even bolder.  One of those is the Camacho Corojo, which I will be reviewing today.  Keeping the whole “bolder” theme in mind, I decided to chow down on a nice meal before lighting this Robusto up.  Now it’s time to see just how bold it really is.

The Camacho Corojo New Blend is a Honduran puro, so in that respect when compared to the original, it has not changed.  What has changed?  The primings.  The filler features three primings of Honduran Corojo, while the binder is Corojo Ligero.  The wrapper, meanwhile, is Honduran Corojo from the fifth priming.  It comes as no surprise that the strength of the new blend is listed as full-bodied.  As for the cigar’s size, this Robusto measures in at 5 x 50.

The most noticeable aspect of the Camacho Corojo New Blend’s appearance is its large decorative band.  And when I say large, I mean it.  They definitely went bold with the bright red and black coloring, and you can read the Camacho name from far away.  It also features the Corojo moniker in small lettering and a scorpion logo that appears as part of the rebranding process.  The cigar itself has a medium brown wrapper that is a tad oily in nature and has a reddish tint.  Feeling the cigar lets me know that it is well-packed with tobacco and free of any soft spots.  I see a few minor veins.  No real imperfections are detected and construction seems to be solid overall.  The cold taste is sweet, while the pre-light aroma is spicy.

Once lit, the Corojo New Blend offers mostly solid gray ash and a nice draw.  The burn stays even from start to finish and requires zero touch-ups.  There’s plenty of smoke to be enjoyed.  Smoking time is around 90 minutes total.
