Every year the Camacho brand releases its highly anticipated Camacho Liberty cigar. This is a release that has the cigar connoisseur waiting with bated breath. Starting in the summer of 2002, the Camacho Liberty series was released. They are typically made with Habana tobacco, of which there is only one crop, which makes it a very distinct stick. This year, the company has decided to go back to its roots, and is calling this release the Camacho Liberty 2018 Throwback Toro. This is in reference to its blend, which as the same as the 2005 release.

The Camacho brand and name plays a significant role in the history of cigars The Camacho brand began in 1961, by Simon Camacho. He opened up his first factory in Miami, and began producing cigars made from Central American provenance. In 1995, after the death of Mr. Camacho, Camacho was purchased by Caribe Imported Cigars, a company owned by the Eiroa Family. After several years of success, the Eiroa Family sold the Camacho brand to Davidoff.

This years blend uses 100% Honduran tobacco, including aged Honduran Corojo tobaccos for the filler and binder as well as a stunning Honduran Maduro wrapper.

The wrapper is a semi dark chocolate color and is consistent throughout with medium sized veins. There are two bands on the wrapper that come off with ease to ensure that there is no damage when you remove them. The cigar is lighter than others and is evenly filled with no soft spots.

The aroma is of the Spanish Cedar it comes encased in. As with the aroma, the taste is of the cedar and spices when you first start. The second third has more of a coffee taste with a nice hint of nuts. The final third is a terrific finish of spices, cedar, nuts and coffee. It is a medium strength cigar with a mildly smooth and creamy finish. The draw has little resistance and produces a fair amount of smoke. Because of that, it tends to burn a bit fast. The ash holds together well, even into the second third of the cigar and the burn line is very thin. The draw is fairly easy during the pre-light and continues throughout the rest of the smoke.

As with each Liberty release, they are quite limited in number. This is not only an amazing and storied brand, but is perfect for your 4th of July Holiday. Light up the new Camacho Liberty Series 2018 today at Serious Cigars.
