    Camacho Room 101 - Review

    Just a quick review on this awesome stick as I don't have much time or energy for a comprehensive one. This cigar sat in my humi for about 2 weeks and was enjoyed with a glass of Islay Scotch.

    The initial scent on this cigar gave off serious hints of coco, and the initial cold chew on the cap indicated some spice. On first light I knew I was in for an experience, Camacho is known for making strong cigars and this bad boy opened up like a face ripper. The first third was dominated with the flavor of aged leather and dark chocolate. The middle part mellowed out, the strength subsided and the flavor turned to just a pleasant mix of tobacco, some light chocolate and some cinnamon like spice. The final third though ramped up in the fashion of a Pre-Embargo, lots of nuttiness and coco with overtones of cinnamon and nutmeg, and just enough pepper to dry the roof of my mouth. The best comparison I could make is the flavors of a ripe Unholy Cocktail mixed with the Corojo flavors of a Camacho Diploma, but with more gusto and strength.

    Needless to say, this bad boy just earned itself a permanent place in my collection.

    Construction: 8/10, some touch ups, but no serious canoeing or anything. The wrapper and cap both held firm.
    Strength: 9/10. Have some food in you, and have something strong to drink handy, cause this bad boy will do its best to light you up.
    Complexity: 7/10. transitions could have been more intense, but with the strength this cigar delivered I call it good.
    Flavor: 9/10 Freaking yummy, right up there with the Corojo lines, but just a little different. I enjoyed the hell out of it.
    Smoke: GOBS OF SMOKE. very full and chewy smoke filled my mouth with every draw, and the room note made me loathe to leave my garage.
    Overall: 9/10 Another winner from Camacho in my book, now I just need to score a few more of these!

    here's a picture of a creepy clown face!
