|Wrapper||Corojo, Ecuador Connecticut, Ecuador Habano|
A new day for authentic Corojo.
Camacho fans know there’s a little something different about the brand that truly sets them apart from their competition. The bold, complex flavors are like no other, and this is because Camacho is one of the only brands to use real, authentic, pre-1997 Cuban-seed Corojo in their blends. This leaf is what ensured their success and longevity, but now Camacho is kicking it up a notch. They took the rare leaf and aged it for 6 months in charred bourbon barrels to draw out even more flavor and complexity, and called it the Camacho Distillery Edition.
The Distillery Edition comes in just one 6” x 50 toro size with your choice of three familiar, but amped-up blends. The Connecticut, Corojo, and Ecuador have all been meticulously reblended, all utilizing the sweet, complex barrel-aged Corojo, adding a whole new dimension to the flavor profiles you know & love.
Connecticut: An Ecuador Connecticut wrapper overtop a Corojo binder and long-fillers containing Dominican ligero and barrel-aged Corojo, producing a medium-bodied profile of spice, cream, and nuts, with an oaky sweetness.
Corojo: A Honduran Corojo puro, using a ligero wrapper, barrel-aged binder, and ligero, seco, and viso long-fillers. Full-bodied, bold, and complex, pumps out toasty, spicy notes of earth, caramel, and leather.
Ecuador: Barrel-aged Corojo is joined by Dominican Pelo de Oro for the filler blend, and lays beneath a Brazilian Mata Fina binder and Ecuador Habano wrapper. Features medium-full bodied notes of citrus, toast, oak, and cream, with a spicy, floral finish.
If you’re already a fan of Camacho’s great blends, picking up a box of these should be a no-brainer. If you’re still on the fence, you won’t regret trying them out when you taste the profile that can only come from these rare leaves carefully processed and rolled by the company that does it best. And of course, they all go great with a glass of bourbon!
