Camacho Pre-Embargo

Camacho’s finest. A robust, yet elegant treat.

Camacho Pre-Embargo is one of the most unique cigars on the market. The blend begins with a vintage ’99 Jamastran Corojo wrapper draped around a complex filler blend including a significant portion of authentic pre-embargo Cuban tobacco - the very same tobaccos used in Camacho’s beloved Liberty series. Medium in body with a rich flavor profile, Camacho’s 1962 Pre-Embargo size brings copious amounts of flavor, including wood, leather, nuts, and spices.

My new go to cigar!
This has become my favorite cigar. Smooth from start to finish with even burn. Difficult to find and a little pricey to be smoking all the time. On special occasions or after a really long week this cigar with some tequila makes everything GREAT!

Great Mild Cigar
This is a memorable mild smoke that provides a consistently smooth draw from start to finish. Hard to find, but well-worth the effort. This is my cigar for those too rare times when I can devote 45 minutes of uninterrupted time to just enjoying a great cigar. Grab them while they're still available!

Excellent Smoke
Got a great deal on these in the Make Me An Offer section. They arrived on time and in perfect condition. Classic Cuban tobacco flavor, gives you that nice warm feeling all the way down to your stomach. The burn was even, the draw was great and the cigar held together like a nuclear fallout shelter. This was a great cigar experience from the time I placed the order. I highly recommend these to any cigar enthusiast out there.

Not Enough Cuban Tobacco Inside
I had one about a year ago and it was great. Not any more. Got 10 of these on sale. Great deal--or so I thought. Out of the ten, only a few had flutters of Cubanesque flavor. Most were no better than a two buck stick. Three of ten kept going out and had to be relit repeatedly. The ash doesn't grow very long and it crumbles off unexpectedly. Burns were uneven, but most of all the Cuban flavor was hit or miss--mostly miss. What a bust. A pretty cigar to look at, but it was all promise without delivery.

worth it when on sale
A little dry upon arrival, but some time in the humidor fixed that. The shaggy foot is the wrapper only, no filler. You can certainty taste the old tobacco. Overall, a fine reminder of what once was...

Not like before
when these were first released I thought they were awesome.. the last time I ordered them about 6 mos ago, they were nothing at all special as if the habano tobacco is mostly gone . no more for me at that price even.

A must try.
I was a little hesitant to buy because I didn't believe the hype. I found them to be smooth with an excellent draw. Soft but no burn issues. Smoked three in two days, I found them that enjoyable. Just ordered another pack of five. Give them a try, u won't be disappointed.

Delicious cigar!
Definitely Cuban-esque in flavor! Just a pleasure to smoke. Too expensive to be my daily stick, but worth buying for the occasional treat.

Good cigar, enjoyable
Okay....if you go into this cigar knowing it's not a full Cuban smoke, and you enjoy a mellow to moderate smoke, buy these! They have a good story about what they are made of, and are a smooth and long lasting cigar. I share them with a select few of my friends that I know can appreciate a good cigar.

Yep!!!
Pricey, yes, but as close to an authentic Cuban as I've tried. Delicious.

Poor construction.
Love the flavor profile; however, the last two boxes have had construction issues. The cigars are very soft and do not stay lit after the first third and the burn is not razor sharp. Frustrating to constantly have to re-light.

Great cigar!
Closest thing to a Cuban puro that I've tasted. Just a great cigar. But MAN, are they expensive! Look for a deal & try this stick.

gooooooood...
Okay, I've just begun my 2nd 5-pack of these cigars. I bought my 1st 5'er about a year ago. Since then, I've had the pleasure of tasting authentic Cuban cigars on a precious few occasions. The reason I've taken my sweet time with these being... these carry within them the very essence of that Cuban taste. Maybe it's no Montecristo #2, but I'm inclined to put it up there with Cohiba, maybe even the Partagas Serie D... I'm no veteran smoker, but I know what tastes good. And this... tastes... f^

A disappointment
Having tried genuine Cohibas in Mexico, I jumped at the chance to get my hands on a five pack of these. Color me disappointed. They are OK smokes, but not really more than that. I noticed none of the flavor or punch that I have come to expect from genuine Cubans. Glad that I tried them, but I won't be buying any more.

Wonderful tasting stogie
I love this cigar, that being said, there's probably only about a teaspoon of pre-embargo tobacco in it, and it's probably just a gimmick to get you to buy it. But, buy it you should because it's an amazing tasting cigar. Mine had a rolled up tobaccount leaf on all 5 feet.....foots? Lol had to trim it off, that was probably the pre-embargo tobacco. I knock one star off, Because by the time they reach me they are dry as an old Dead stick, CI should consider boveda packs when shipping in a ziplock. I think it's a matter of where I live that causes them to take more than a week.

Excellent Cigar
I have smoked about a dozen of these pre-embargo cigars now and absolutely love them. They are not densely rolled and have an excellent draw and burn line. My favorite aspect is the flavor profile - you CAN tasted the Cuban tobacco in these and you know what I mean if you have smoked Cubans before. I can taste it beginning after the first inch. The smoke intensity is just right and every time I finish one I want another. I have filled up a small humidor with only these and I recommend you buy them before they are all gone.

Special cigar!
There is something truly unique and special about this cigar. The price is a little steep but as a special occasion smoke, this is absolutely worth having in your humidor. It does carry some of the qualities of a cuban puro. Just... WOW! great cigar!

Worth It
Well worth the splurge. These are one of the finest in my humidor. Ordering a 2nd box now.

Camacho Pp
This was a cigar given to me by a buddy, and I'm shocked to say that it's probably the cigar of the year to me. Perfect draw and construction, and the flavor profile is exquisite. (Coming from a guy whose humidor us widely ranged) I have to say that this is one of my most perfect examples of flavor, balance, power, and taste to date. This is no everyday smoke, but one reserved for those most special occasions . Leather, earth, clove, ... it's all in there on this one!

definitely something different
I just finished enjoying 3 of these with my father and good friend of mine, absolutely awesome smoke definitely something "different" in there I can't put my finger on it, almost vanilla creme flavor. Either way a wonderful cigar I'm just sad I only have two of them left in my humidor.

Awesome.
Picked these up when they were on sale for 40% off. WOW, what a steak that was! They are actually worth the regular price, nice relaxing smoke. Nice burn, a little loose on the roll so it burns a little faster than your average toro. Very nice draw so worth the trade off. Its about as close to cuban as you can get and still be 100% legal.
