Camacho Corojo Diploma Series Cigars
Camacho Corojo Diploma Series
Camacho Diploma cigars are essentially Camacho Corojos on steroids. Hand-made to the highest quality standards in Honduras, the Camacho Diploma consists entirely of authentic Cuban seed corojo tobacco from the 5th priming—the absolute finest, most full-flavored leaves on the plants of Tobacco Jamastran. Since the wrapper, filler, and binder are all made from the same high-powered tobacco, this stick is a full-blown monster ready for the most daring of smokers.
The band reads “Quinto Corte,” Spanish for “fifth cut,” referring to the high priming leaves used to make this beast. The wrapper is smooth and veiny with a reddish hue, and the construction is impeccable. The incredibly loose draw brings out billowing clouds of blue smoke. The opening puff is almost overwhelming, bombarding the palate with intense spice. Rich earthy flavors develop and there is a constant presence of heavy spice and pepper. This cigar is merciless, only gaining strength as it progresses, and all the while retaining precise balance and creamy smoothness.
If Camacho has a flagship cigar, this is it. Never to be smoked on an empty stomach, the Diploma is an incredibly powerful and rich cigar that pairs terrifically with single-malt scotch or tawny port. Other sticks like this include Camacho Corojo and Camacho 10th Anniversary. Only experienced smokers should try these, and they are without a doubt a strength junkie's dream come true.
