Description

Floor it with Camacho

An intense, powerful, adrenaline-fueled blend like no other. Camacho Powerband cigars are here, and they're here to stay. Inspired by the strength, speed, and acceleration of a classic V-twin engine, Camacho Powerband is a high-octane blend for enthusiasts that prefer their cigars to have a healthy kick of oomph. This cigar takes its place in the Master Built series, alongside the Triple Maduro and the full-bodied American Barrel Aged.

Powerband isn’t just flashy to look at though, it’s a masterclass performer under the hood. Rolled with a unique bunching process that makes sure there’s a great draw on every cigar, Powerband is everything you want in a premium cigar. Tobacco from five different countries shows off notes of dark coffee, chili pepper, and a rich oaky core with an Ecuadorian Habano 2000 wrapper bringing an extra bit of oomph to this one. Take the Powerband for a test drive, and I’m sure you’ll be back for the box.

Tangy but really enjoyed these tubos. I'd not recommend a size over Robusto.

Solid smoke. Bold,strong, flavor. Smoked well. High grade tobacco. Did not feel or tase like a cigarette. Leaf wrapper. The obvious. Very nice box. Nice metallic tube, easy for carrying them around.

Good cigar with a nutty quality! Smokes evenly and, in spite of the name, doesn’t overpower. Delish!

Love Camacho's in general. First time I had this one. Packaging is fancy, which made my wife happy (she likes the boxes for crafting), and the smoke was smooth and lasted longer than expected. Really enjoyed the flavor as well.

Master Built?

Powerband is the newest addition to the Master Built Series from Camacho. There are two other cigars in that line: Triple Maduro and American Barrel Aged. Triple Maduro has been a crowd pleaser since the blend debuted. And I liked American Barrel Aged enough to review it last year, and give it a 90 point rating. Needless to say, Powerband had some big shoes to fill if it was going to live up to these two.
 
So what exactly are we dealing with here? Powerband is inspired by biker culture, and like all Camachos the presentation is on point. But I’m not here to collect fancy boxes, I’m here to light up some great cigars. So let’s pop open the hood on this sucker. We’re looking at a Habano 2000 Ecuador wrapper, a Mexican San Andres binder, and filler leaves from Nicaragua, Honduras, and three different regions of the Dominican Republic. That’s right, there’s 5 unique long-fillers at play.
The fine folks at Camacho tell me this one is made with a “proprietary bunching process that maximizes airflow for peak performance.” Honestly, I’m not sure if that actually affects the cigar at all. Don’t get me wrong, the draw and construction are spot-on. But I don’t think you’ll toast the foot of this and then say, “Wow, I really enjoy the thorough airflow allowed by the proprietary bunching process of the filler leaves!”… Unless that’s your thing, in which case, have at it.
 
Anyway, back to the cigar. There’s a great amount of flavor at play here. I went with the 6” x 50 Toro for this review, and was greeted with earthy notes and a spicy core at the start. As the cigar burnt, it progressed into a sweetness joined the mix that had me reaching for a nice stout to pair up with this handmade. If I have to make a complaint, I’ll echo what I said in my ABA review: the price here isn’t great. It’s worth the money, but probably a bit too rich to be in my humidor all the time. As an occasional treat, the Powerband is well worth the 5-Pack purchase, and I think it fits right in with the other Master Built offerings.
