Camacho Pre-Embargo

Description

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.

This is a really great cigar that not a lot of people know about. Very well constructed, smooth earthy taste and the very Cuban hay flavor. Highly suggest giving them a try.

Would have given 5 star but these are not as complex as some others I've purchased in the past ( missing that peat type flavor this time around) . Still a solid smoke if you get them at a discount, i always get mine on mmao

I’ve had “pre-embargo” cigars before and found all of them pretty inferior - just a gimmick. These, however are really excellent. Constructed well, full- bodied and flavorful with a consistent burn. Don’t buy these if you can’t take a punch. I’m not talking about their strength, I mean I’ll fight you for them.

Really good smoke, volumes of smoke, good and even burn, smokes cool. OCCASIONAL uneven burn but recovers well, probably the result of inconsistent humidor storage.

Bought these cigars once and i am buying them again as i fell in love. After about a month of re-humidification, i smoked the first one and i was hooked. Good, medium full bodied with that classic cuban tobacco taste.. hints of leather, nuts all wrapped up with a creamy finish. Very consistent all the way through.

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!

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!

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.

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.

I held off buying these for a while, because I was suspicious about the hype, but when CI had a sale on a 5-pack for fifty bucks, I splurged. I should have known Camacho wouldn't put their name on anything less than a quality stick. The draw was surprisingly loose, but the burned and construction were great. The cigar delivered plentiful rich, creamy full-bodied smoke. And there was definitely an unusual spiciness in the smoke that I suspect was the old tobacco. A rear treat, and definitely worth the money. I'll buy again if I have the opportunity!

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...

I bought 10 of these cigars ‘on sale.’ If there is Cuban pre-embargo tobacco in them, it’s very little. Maybe a teaspoon per cigar. Many of them were no better than a $4 stick. Seven of ten required repeated touch ups. Sure, there were hints of Cubanesque flavors here and there but overall…disappointing.

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.

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

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.
