Camacho Pre-Embargo Cigar Review

This 6×48 stick is derived from actual decades old pre-embargo tobacco from Cuba. Offering a medium chocolate wrapper with a spongy feel, closed foot and pigtail cap it shows minimal veins and good clean seams. With a burn time of only 1 hour, it imparts a medium-full body and full strength, giving a rush and buzz just an inch in to the smoke. Smoke output was voluminous after burning off the closed foot, giving rich smooth flavors. The first half showed a typical aged tobacco smoothness with a bit of mustiness and a good pepper zing on the long finish. At the half way point it transitioned to a creamy flavor and light leather, keeping the cream through the finish where the pepper joined in. Burn was wavy but it performed well all the way down with a draw just on the loose side. If you want these you must buy now while they exist.
