Camacho Corojo Churchill Cigar Review

This 7×48 stick features a dark brown very oily, soft and slightly toothy wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, even firm pack, triple cap and a musty prune and licorice. First light reveals a perfect draw with medium-full body flavors of a fairly sweet tobacco with thick oily smooth smoke and a long finish. The first third mellow out quite a bit, shifting down to mild-medium at the very best, keeping the same general flavor profile, while the finish gets very short and clean. Burn isn’t perfect but doesn’t need a touchup. 30 minutes in the 2nd third starts, while flavors remain largely unchanged just dropping what little was left of the sweetness. Burn is good and the ash holds right to the 2nd third. The 2nd third ends with the addition of a subtle nutmeg, just adding a little spice character to the flavor profile. Still on the mild side though. Ending at 1:25 the last bit showed no further changes. Thank you very much to viewer Jeremie Plouffe for generously sending this in!

    Interesting that you thought these were mild. Mine have always been on the medium-full side. The tobacco flavor is what I taste, which is why I love them. I like my cigars to taste like aged tobacco and that’s what I’ve always tasted with these. Too bad yours wasn’t better as these are a favorite of mine.

    Bryan.. It’s commentary like this that makes you the top dog in the world of cigar reviews..the only way to describe some of them is “brutally honest”…no question it is uncomfortable for the guy who submitted the cigar ….but for the rest of us it provides crystal clear info on whether or not to spend our hard earned money on a particular cigar…and Jeremie..don’t take it too hard..we all have our favorite flavor profiles..it’s what makes cigars and the entire cigar industry so fascinating ….and Bryan..thanks again for all you do to enhance the experience..bonito perfecto!!

      Good call

    I have always thought camacho corojos are pretty good- smooth, aged taste, I almost get a sandlewood vibe at times, but I never understood why they are thought of as such powerhouses… medium at the most to me- great review :)

    @Paradisecove, I don’t necessarily send Bryan my favorites, I tend to try and give him new things that he hasn’t tried on his review board. It can also be recent sticks I’ve tried and want his opinion on and would never take it personal or anything of that sort. @Bryan thanks for the review, funny how everybody is different since I found that blend to be quite strong and rich in flavor. Couldn’t distinguish some of the flavors. Thanks for your time!Keep up the good work.

    I almost always agree with your reviews, but I think this is one that we disagree on. I find these to be more medium to full bodied with lots of pepper and spice flavors.

    I’m have this one lit tonight and I must say I like it a lot. It’s real smooth and mellow and for me its a real relaxing smoke. Sometimes I’m in the mood for a smoke that just keeps it simple.

    I’ve been meaning to try one of these. Most of my smokes are med-full with coffee and chocolate being the predominant flavors I like. I’ve been looking for a solid stick with a different flavor profile than I’m used too. This one may be a little bland based on the review, but if its not too pricey I’ll def pick one up.

    Hopefully the new and improved Camacho roll out will give this stick a bit more complexity.

  • HB Toaster

    When I desire a real consistant smooth smoke this is one of my favorites.

    No bite or after-taste.
