For cigar aficionados, the Camacho brand is synonymous with “full”—as in full-bodied, full-flavored, and full of character. Their blends usually promise a powerful well-balanced smoke brimming with aromatic flavor. This is precisely why Camacho makers Christian and Julio Eiroa have developed such a loyal cult-like following. As the band at the foot of your cigar notes, Camacho dates to 1962. That was the year Julio Eiroa exiled to Honduras by Castro began yet another life of cigar making in a different country. The creation of the 1962’s blend was a labor of love for the Eiroa family. Not surprisingly, the filler tobaccos are composed of extensively aged Cuban-seed long-leaf tobaccos grown in their adopted country. The smooth, oily Havana-seed Criollo wrapper is from the 3rd priming. (If you’re not familiar with the term “priming,” it literally means picking. A tobacco plant has several primings, depending on the type of tobacco. The higher the priming, the higher the leaf is on the plant. Because they’re more exposed to the sun and other weather elements, higher primings result in tobacco leaves that are thicker, darker, more flavorful, and stronger in nature.) While the 1962 is by no means the most full-bodied Camacho, it is riddled with deep, elegant flavors. For the most part, this is a medium-bodied stick but every now and then it creeps into the full-bodied realm. Like most of Camacho’s fuller-bodied cigars, the 1962 offers a pleasant spice through the nose that is far from obtrusive. Look for the buttery smooth 1962 to serve up layers of robust, yet elegant, flavors—a delicious, creamy bouquet of earth and nuts, finishing with a pleasant note of white pepper. Our International Wine of the Month Club Members have the perfect pairing in this month's Italian Tamellini Soave.
