camachocorojo2 I hope you are ready for some reviews, because today we have two cigars on tap that should make your “to-do list.” Starting things today will be the the highly-rated, full-bodied Camacho Corojo Monarca. To follow, we have a premium, tasty selection in the Gurkha G5 Avenger Torpedo.

Camacho Corojo Monarca

Looking to spice up your life? Want to take an adventure on the full-bodied highway? If so, then Camacho has the perfect cigar for you with its Corojo line. This highly-rated line has won plenty of praise in the past and is regarded as one of the best full-bodied sticks available. The Corojo is the pride and joy of the Camacho brand, and is intended for seasoned smokers. Is this cigar all hype and no substance? I hope not, because after some research this is one I have been looking forward to lighting up.

The Camacho Corojo Monarca measures 5 x 50. The line offers plenty of other sizes as well: the 5 1/2x 42 Petit, the 5 1/2x 44 Nacionales, the 6 x 50 Toro, the 6 x 54 Gigante, the 6 1/2x 44 Cetros, the 7 x 48 Churchill, the 7 x 54 Figurado, and the 8 1/2x 60 Diademas. The cigar is a Honduran puro, made completely out of Honduran tobacco. To be more exact, its filler, binder, and wrapper are all authentic Corojo tobacco from the nation's, Jamastran Valley. Only the highest primings of the plant are used to construct the line. There is also a Maduro version of the line that is available as well. This is one cigar that is not meant for the faint of heart, and it is considered to be as full-bodied as they come.

The Corojo Monarca has an appearance that is about as average as they come. While it's not pretty, it does seem to be constructed well, however. The Corojo wrapper is dark and has a slight reddish tint to it, and there is a bit of oil that is visible when the cigar is put under direct light. There are also a few veins running throughout the body. When feeling it up and down, it seems to be extremely firm. Hopefully this will not translate into a tight draw. There is a simple decorative band near the head with a brown and gold color scheme that adds a nice touch to its appearance. The band displays the Camacho name and logo. Before lighting, there is a cold taste that is spicy. The scent is spicy too.


The Monarca is a pleasure to smoke and is absent of any issues in the burn department. The draw is fine, and not tight as anticipated earlier. The ash is white and solid. The burn keeps straight on its own throughout. There are no touch-ups needed, and the same goes for any re-lighting.
