Hailing from the lush soils of Honduras, Camacho is a boutique line of cigars deserving of the many 90-plus ratings it has acquired. They have a reputation for expertly balancing unmatched flavor with a satisfying boldness. And The Original Diploma is one of their finest and most sought after blends created. It originally debuted in 2001 but soon vanished from the market. Then we saw it again in 2015 for a short run. Then in 2017, the company announced it would return once a year, in a new limited edition size.
The blend uses some of the finest tobaccos in the world and is crafted by Camacho’s 5 most skilled torcedores (rollers) in the factory with the leaves hand-selected by the factory supervisor to ensure the best experience possible. The tobacco used is all Honduran Corojo from higher priming’s to add a little extra power. The end result is a medium to full-bodied cigar with balanced notes of wood, cocao, dried fruit, and some pepper on the finish. When this package arrives at your door you’ll be amazed. It’s some of the finest packaging in the industry and one of the best cigars to hit our docks this year.
Special Robusto is the 2017 release. The 11/18 figurado is the 2018 release.
