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. While new innovations are common in the cigar industry, and some are a hit and some are not, the Camacho Ditka Throwback you have in your shipment today is definitely a hit. Thinking outside the box has always been a part of the Camacho brand, and this one is one for the books.
The Camacho Ditka Throwback Edition 2016 was closely developed with the legendary Mike Ditka. If you’re not familiar with him, we’ll try to briefly sum him up. Mike Ditka was not only a player but a coach in the National Football League. Over his long and remarkable Hall-of-Fame career, he was a two-time Super Bowl champ, five-time Pro Bowler, NFL Rookie of the Year, Unanimous All American, and two-time NFL Coach of the Year. Yes, we know we missed a lot of career highlights there and we should have gone with the suggestion one person gave us on how to sum him up: Da Bears. Either way, super impressive just like the smoke you have in your shipment today. Looking at it, the first thing you’ll notice is the flavorful Honduran Criollo wrapper leaf that is securing a Nicaraguan Corojo 99’ binder and a wealth of smooth Dominican fillers. Medium in body, light ‘er up and you’ll find an extremely balanced yet flavorful blend of the classic Camacho spice, leather, roasted nuts, cinnamon, and cocoa. We loved this cigar and we know that you will too. Enjoy it any time of day, perhaps while watching the Bears play, with a West Coast IPA.
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.
