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 – that and their profile of 90+ rated cigars, including this one which Cigar Aficionado gave a rating of 90. This Camacho Connecticut, however, is not one that will come kicking your door down as most Camachos do. In fact, this handsome fella will come politely knocking with its mild and smooth demeanor while still unleashing its spicy side. It all starts with Honduran proprietary Generoso and Dominican Aleman Ligero that is blended to perfection, then secured with an authentic Corojo binder, and completed with a glistening Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. Once lit, this mild-mannered razor sharp smoke will unleash intense flavors of creaminess that will round out the spice and sweetness you know and love from Camacho. Known as “the utility cigar” by Camacho, it’s perfect for any time of day or occasion, and is, as they put it, “…like a pocketknife that’s got a bottle opener, soldering iron, and extendable fishing rod.” We also found that this beauty pairs perfectly with Mojitos.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
