Camacho Select Cigars
Labeled an 'Ultra-Premium Brand' by its makers, the Camacho Select cigar represents an excellent value for all smokers looking for classic cigar enjoyment with a touch of elegance. Originally released by Julio Eiroa in 2005 as a cigar for holiday gifting, the popularity of the cigar led to a re-blending in 2008 with more available tobaccos to allow for wider distribution. A Honduran puro, the Select contains a rich blend of well-aged tobaccos held tightly by a Cameroon-seed wrapper and kept in 21-count boxes.
The quality of construction can be appraised and appreciated after removing the black, red, and gold second band at the foot; the Select is flawless with a silky texture and firm body. Unlit, the cigar offers the dusty-sweet aroma and lip-smacking flavor Cameroon leaf is known for. Draw slowly with a soft flame for best results when lighting and be rewarded with balanced sweet spices and cedar. Patience will reveal to the palate a creamy nutmeg layer in the smoke, and maybe a hint of cocoa. The Select stays sweet all throughout the smoke, with no bitterness or other unpleasant flavors well into the nub.
The Camacho Select can and should be enjoyed by any smoker. It is not overpowering like many Camachos but has enough complexity to please even the most senior aficionado. Paired with a coffee or even a good cognac, this cigar offers an experience that is similar to that found by smoking the delicious Arturo Fuente Natural or Oliva Serie G.
