camachoh2pic1 Welcome to another edition of cigar reviews on Puff.com. Today we are focusing on one company and two cigars. The company is Camacho, and its cigars to be reviewed are the Havana H2 and the Select Torpedo. Let's see if they are worth a recommendation.

Camacho Havana H2

In case you could not tell by its name, the Havana line from Camacho was created with the intention of replicating cigars from the old days in Havana, Cuba. The line is a part of the premium category of offerings from the brand. Does the H2 warrant a purchase from you? Let's light one up and find out.

The Camacho Havana H2 measures 4 1/2x 50. The cigar comes in a ton of other sizes as well: the H1, H3, Gigante Figurado, Churchill, Toro, Cetros, Monarca, Nacionales, Diademas, and Petit. The H2 is made completely of Honduran tobacco that is grown in the nation's fertile Jamastran Valley. The Jamastran Valley was chosen by Camacho as the Havana tobacco's growing spot because its characteristics mimic those of the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba. Both the filler and binder are composed of Authentic Corojo tobacco that has a strong kick to it. To counteract the Corojo's strength, Camacho decided to go with a Habano Criollo wrapper. The Havana H2 is considered to be medium to full-bodied.

Looks-wise, the H2 is attractive. Its size gives it a short and stubby appearance, and it has a dark brown wrapper. A bit of oil is noticeable on its surface. There are also a few prominent veins that can be seen throughout the body. Near the head of the cigar is a decorative band. It features the Camacho name and logo. Its yellow and gold color scheme provides a nice contrast to the dark appearance of the wrapper. Feeling the H2 reveals that it is well-packed with tobacco. Before lighting, it has a spicy scent and cold taste that hint of its strength.

When in action, the Havana H2 is sort of a mixed bag. Its draw is good, and solid white ash is produced. The negative aspect of the burn is that it tends to get uneven at times, so some touching up is necessary. It does stay lit on its own throughout, however.
