Say hello to Criollo.
Camacho Criollo lives up to its fabled reputation of getting a whole lotta bang for your buck. Widely regarded as being "as close to Cuba as you can get," Camacho cigars celebrate a long and illustrious tradition of pleasing the most grizzled enthusiasts.
Criollo is a welcomed page in Camacho's book. Thanks to serving up a satisfying medium-bodied array of spicy-sweet undertones, there's a lot to look forward to. Featuring a gorgeous fourth priming Criollo ’98 wrapper and a balanced blend of Honduran and Dominican-grown Piloto Cubano long-fillers, it's got plenty of gusto too, but without all the knee-knocking strength Camacho is known for. That means you can get behind the wheel of this handmade almost any time of day. As my feeble minded co-worker likes to say, "you can savor the flavor all day long."
Camacho Criollo Figurado received a well-deserved 92-point rating noting: "Draped in an eye-catching Colorado wrapper, this well-rolled torpedo smokes perfectly, imparting profound cocoa notes, earthiness and savory leather."
Milder, but no less intense.
It’s no easy task to scale back on strength without losing complexity and flavor. Lesser men have tried and failed. But the fine folks at Camacho have been around the block a few times....evidenced by their portfolio of 90+ rated blends and legions of devoted fans....and they know how to construct a damn good cigar. So it’s no surprise that they easily conquered this challenge.
Camacho Connecticut is balanced and smooth, but also features a bold flavor profile that keeps things interesting. Boasting an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, an authentic Corojo binder, and a perfect blend of Honduran and Dominican Aleman ligero long-fillers, you can expect a spicy kick that’s not too overwhelming. Referred to as a “utility cigar,” this is the handmade you’ll want to keep on hand for everyday use.
Camacho Connecticut received a well-deserved 90-rating noting: "Perfectly symmetric in appearance, this pyramid has a bit of an airy draw. Initial acidity passes and the smokes takes on a creamy character with hints of citrus and sweet espresso."
