Camacho Corojo

A 93-rated knee-knocker with a remarkable, potent flavor.

Camacho Corojo is the Eiroa family’s flagship brand, and known for capturing the true, bold tastes of old Cuba. The secret is the tobacco, a robust blend of 100% Jamastran Corojo leaf grown in Honduras, coated with beautiful, reddish-hued wrappers of the highest primings. The result is a feisty, Cuban-esque flavor layered with deep, earthy undertones delivered in a powerful, yet balanced and smooth manner.

In addition to an amazing 94-point rating, Camacho Corojo was named one of the world’s ’Top 25 Cigars,’ noting: "There’s a lot to like about this cigar-it’s a big, hefty smoke, medium to full bodied, and loaded with rich, leathery flavors and notes of earth and dark fruit."

Customer Reviews of “Camacho Corojo”
“Honestly,I still don't understand what is so great about this cigar after smoking five of them.I think it's overrated”
SN of Austin, TX
“I have been smoking the Camacho Corojos for about 18 months, and I am still overwhelmed every single time I light one at just what an excellent cigar this is. When I first tried these (a 5-pack), they completely kicked my arse. These are, as the CI description says, remarkable, potent, and remarkably potent. But... I don't think there is another cigar that generates the wonderful flavor and aroma that the Camacho does. Give these a try. If they seem to overwhelm, put on your big girl pants and stick with it. Like a single-malt scotch, I think the Camacho Corojo may be an acquired taste. Once you get it, you will want more. After one-year of humidor aging, the potent flavor mellows a bit giving a smoother experience with all of the richness that the younger cigar offered. A highly recommended cigar.”
PJ of Crystal Lake, IL
“A FULL BODIED MASTERPIECE YOU CAN FEEL DEEP DOWN!”
BC of Millville, NJ
“wow... what a smoke... (Camacho Corojo)! I felt light headed after half-way on the cigar. I normally feel that if am just sittin around, but this happened when am walking around the golf course... great flavor awesome taste down to the nub... two thumbs up!”
RN of san diego, CA
“This cigar is quite nice, though required a wee bit of attention to keep it burning evenly. Lovely pre-light aroma, a firm ash and strongish, enjoyable flavour. It gets high marks from me.”
MC of MLeesburg, VA
“Well, being naturally skeptical about any salon style over priced stripper club specials. Camacho just simply didn't appeal to me right off, however. (Camacho Corojo) I was in the mood for a experiment and tried the Corojo offering from Camacho and was pleasantly suprised. It had delicate notes, it had full-bodied moods as well. The moderately dark, oily wrapper was a pleasure to burn back and had a consistent draw wll the way through; also the aroma was consistent and plentiful all the way through. My rate, this stick: 87”
C of SSouthern, CA
“This was once a great cigar--one of my favorites--but I believe the quality has gone down hill over the years. It use to be rich and smooth, now it's harsh. In addition to tobacco of lesser quality, I also believe that it's no longer made as well as it was just a few years ago. Perhaps my latest batch of Camachos was just mistakes that "slipped through the cracks." But I'll never know since I'll choose other brands in the future.”
WC of Menomonie, WI
“Excellent full bodied, full flavored cigar; in my top 5.”
LZ of Gainesville, GA
“this is a classic, camacho is with out a doubt my top shelf favorite. the corojo is very full in flavor and strength. i like corojo wrappers . the cusano 1997 and the vigilante close out i smoke as well , they flavor is leathery and salty to the taste. but this camacho corojo is in a league by it self. this has a party of flavors going on ,rich, meaty, toasty ,leathery, salty and strong coffee. all the camacho cigars are intense in what my dad calls true cuban flavor. he has smoked and loved cuban cigars , he says this brand is the real deal. also he likes pepins cuban classic and the original cubans bundles. these are a mans man cigar, if you think pepins are full bodied , these are more so.”
JS of hamilton , OH
“"ON THE SECOND DAY GOD CREATED CAMACHO COROJO CIGARS!!! NEED I SAY MORE..........”
JB of Hagerstown, MD
“Having another one of these as I type. Beautiful cigar, smooth, full flavor. Great draw, volumes of great tasting smoke, but what gets me the most is the wrapper. Beautiful color and feel and a flawless construction. High marks from me, just make sure you have something in your stomach, as it can be a knocker!”
JW of Canton, OH
“Camacho Corojo has always been my favorite cigar, but I haven't had one in awhile because I always like trying new stuff. I thought for old times sake I would smoke one again. I bought a gigante the other day and smoke it. I remembered instantly why Camachos are my favorite. Perfect draw, lots of nice thick smoke, And great flavor. I thought to myself "Why do I even bother with these other cigars?".”
MK of Kutztown, PA
“If you don't try these you are stupid! These are some of the best cigars out there. They are sweet, medium-full and robust. They leave a great taste on the palate.”
CS of Rock Springs, WY
“Great cigar!”
MG of Cherry Hill, NJ
“A full bodied well balanced cigar. My favorite is the corona Nacionales. The best I have tried yet. Starts out peppery and earthy then evens out with notes of mocha, raisins, dark chocolate and toast all the way down. A treat to have during the day. Construction, draw, and wrap are perfect. Not a cigar for the mild-medium smoker. All sizes are equally as well.”
PW of Charlestown, RI
“The Figurado is a big decadent smooth cigar. Rum raisin, nutmeg & molasses dominate this well balanced torpedo. Perfectly constructed, it also develops a light earthy clay taste with cedar in the background. Not as much kick as the smaller sizes but pleasantly relaxing all the same. The smoke and aromas are fantastic. Well worth it.”
PW of Charlestown, RI
“A flavor house packed with dark chocolate, cocoa, and creamy dark roast coffee! This cigar is a few pinches above medium bodied. Delicious cigar from the toast to the toe!”
JS of Arlington, TN
“A Medium To Full Bodied Creamy, Spicy, Treat, a Must Have Cigar For Anyone's Humidor.”
MF of Bogalusa, LA
“Corojo lovers need to try a 5 pack of these magnificent specimens! Full flavor meets great taste in an immaculate package. I can't put this one down to let it rest, yet it never becomes cloying or harsh. I've tried them all & Camacho Corojo is the best. Highly recommended.”
BB of LOVELAND, OH
“This is the only Camacho I have had so far in my cigar infancy, however is one of the best cigars I have had. It has a very unique taste full of good flavor and is full bodied. I will definitely have this one again and would recommend it. I can see why it was given such a high rating.”
BW of SIMI VALLEY, CA
“These cigars are great! A excellent addition to any humidor. They have become my go to sticks. If you haven't tried one you need to.”
DM of WESTPORT, MA
“Many cigar makers like to compare their smokes to Cuban cigars. The Camacho Corojo is one of the few that can rightfully make that claim. This is a powerhouse of a smoke, new cigar smokers need not apply.”
DM of ETTERS, PA
“Definitely full bodied but good. Lots of after taste but still smooth. Lives up to camacho quality.”
TP of CARLSBAD, CA

Camacho Corojo

Posted by Steve R
Back in late 2005 I wrote a review on Camacho Corojo. I rated it favorably with an 89-point score. About 2 weeks ago, I received an email from a fellow enthusiast asking that I review this brand again. You see, the Camacho Corojo is one of his favorite cigars and his supply is now running low. He wants to ensure current production, which comes in flashy new boxes of 25, tastes exactly like the cigar he’s grown to love. Well Pete-TEE, this one’s for you.... I expect to see that Hannover story in my inbox stat!
 
For this review I chose the 6” x 50 Toro, my favorite size in the standard Camacho Corojo lineup. The wrapper is dark and smooth, sporting tiny veins and a glossy, milk-chocolate hue. The pre-light aroma is that of earth and cedar. Virtually no spice on the nose....a deceiving nose, considering the assortment of spices that lies ahead. After a patient and even light with my Gatsby, we’re off and running. The cigar opens with a thick and creamy texture. The smoke is buttery, leaving behind a slightly toasty touch of pepper on the finish. The draw is perfect, releasing a truckload of thick, grey smoke above, which is influenced by a zesty aroma.
 
After about an inch, the spice grows stronger, hitting the back of the palate with each puff and through the nose with each exhale. The aftertaste is warm and toasty....there’s still some pepper there, but it’s mostly earthy, almost gritty. Two inches in, the power kicks in....I feel it behind my eyeballs. Let the smoke roll around your palate long enough and you might pick up a sweet cedary element - I notice it on my tongue and the roof of my mouth. The final third is purely Camacho Corojo. Strong, dishing out a flavorful and long-lasting series of earth notes and spices. The burn stayed true to the end. In fact, I stopped to grab a glass of water midway through and the dang thing was still going upon returning a couple minutes later.
 
I noticed two major differences with Camacho’s current production of the Corojo line. First, the cigar is much more balanced throughout. The flavors are presented in a smooth and methodical fashion. Gradually changing and becoming more intense during the burn. At no point does the spiciness of the Jamastran-grown tobaccos dominate the flavor profile. Second, the strength sneaks up on you, rather than smacking you upside the dome from the get-go. The cigar wines and dines ya a bit before swinging for the fences....something anybody can appreciate.
 
That said, current production is comparable, if not better. I enjoyed this cigar immensely and am thankful for Señor Pete’s request. With the onslaught of quality Corojo-wrapped temptations hitting the market as of late, it’s great to come back to an old friend.

Camacho Corojo

Posted by Steve R
I have a hard time finding a Corojo cigar I like. For some reason, the flavors disagree with my taste buds, making it difficult to finish most Corojo-wrapped cigars I start. One of the very few exceptions to this rule is the Camacho Corojo – a cigar that received 'top full-bodied' cigar honors from Cigar Cyclopedia in 2004. That's quite an honor, considering the world's top 100 full-bodied cigars were competing, Cubans included.

Camacho Corojo is an enchanting cigar. Everything about it is a representation of fine cigar making at its very best, from the appearance and aroma to the flavor and construction. The dark chestnut-hued wrapper is smooth and toothy, with a few prominent veins shining through, accentuating the power that lies beneath. The aroma is intoxicating, peppery hints of sweet cedar, a sign of optimum box-aging. Flavor-wise, there's nothing quite like it north of Miami: robust, earthy hints backed by a heady, peppery aftertaste, delivered with assertive, full-bodied charisma. And of course, the burn. Even, slow and cool, leaving a solid, salt and pepper ash behind that needs to be helped off the tip of the cigar. Every time I pull one of these Honduran beauties out of the humidor, I know exactly what's in store: a relaxing, full-bodied smoke filled with deep, robust flavors and a familiar Cuban flair. Other than the strength (which may not be for everyone), I having nothing but good things to say about this cigar. If you enjoy full-flavored and full-bodied, get on this horse right away.
