May 2016: Camacho Corojo

Camacho Corojo Cigar

The May 2016 Cigar Dave Officers Club selection is Camacho Corojo.  Camacho Corojo is the authentic classic smoke from vintage Cuban seed “liberated” from the island. This cigar is 100% genuine Corojo, the thoroughbred leaf, slowly aged, like a fine rum. Robust, yet smooth. A most legendary smoke.

The original Corojo seed had its roots in Cuba, but its legend is solely in the hands of Camacho. Revered by experienced aficionados for more than a decade, Camacho Corojo is built with a high-grade, fifth-priming wrapper leaf and grown from a plant that was liberated from compromise in the name of true authenticity.

After receiving a handful of the smuggled Corojo seeds in the 1960s, Camacho began growing them in the Jamastran Valley of Honduras. It’s taken 40 years dialing up the richness of the plant and bringing its intensity up to the level that made it famous worldwide.

The integrity and reverence of Cuba’s famed original Corojo lives on in Camacho. No other cigar can claim the true character and authenticity of history’s most cherished tobacco leaf.
