The cigar's burn once in action is a mixed bag. The draw is loose, and some nice solid ash is formed. It stays even for awhile, but tends to go astray. Some touch-ups are necessary. Luckily, it stayed lit until the very end.

The flavors experienced while smoking the Liberty 2009 are excellent. It begins with an earthy flavor that is accompanied by a dash of cocoa. Some coffee enters the mix, as does some spice. Very tasty nutty flavors also make an appearance, and cedar is the final flavor that is noticeable. The cigar does seem to fall more towards being medium-bodied and is not too overwhelming.

If there is one thing that can be said of the Liberty 2009 from Camacho, it's that it is a very enjoyable cigar. The presentation with the individual coffin and double bands is superb. The uneven burn was a bit of a disappointment, especially considering just how limited the cigar is. The flavors, however, almost make one forget the burn issues. There is plenty of complexity to keep one satisfied. As far as price is concerned, a single goes for around $16 and up, depending on where you shop. Packs of 5 or boxes of 20 are also available. At that price, many will not be able to make this a frequent smoke. However, if you are looking for a flavorful stick for a special occasion, the Liberty 2009 fits the bill. It may not have enough kick for full-bodied fans, but most smokers should find it to be worthy of their time.

The Camacho Liberty 2009 earns a rating of 3 out of 4 stars.

Don Pepin Garcia My Father No. 1 Robusto


As its name would suggest, the My Father line was created by Jaime Garcia as a tribute to his father, cigar legend Don Pepin Garcia. Some sizes within the My Father line have already received plenty of critical praise and hype. Does the No. 1 measure up? Let's find out right now.

The My Father No. 1 Robusto measures 5 1/4x 52. The line also comes in the following sizes: the 5 1/4x 54 No. 2, the 6 x 49 No. 3, and the 7 1/2x 38 No. 4. The cigar's filler is made up of Nicaraguan tobacco grown in the nation's region of Esteli. The binder is Nicaraguan as well. It's been said that the tobacco used in the filler and binder was originally set aside for the Garcia's personal use, prior to being selected for this particular release. Covering the No. 1 is an Ecuadorian Habano Rosado leaf is used for the wrapper, which strays from the traditional Garcia ritual of using Nicaraguan wrappers. A triple cap tops off the cigar. The My Father line is categorized as being medium to full-bodied.
