Quick Smoke: Camacho Select Churchill

31 May 2008

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

One year ago, I wrote about this Camacho line as a fine cigar but nothing special. Since I’ve been enjoying many Cameroon wrapper cigars lately, I thought I’d give it another try. This time I had a 48 ring gauge, 6.5 inch Churchill. Quite honestly, I am less impressed than before. The smoke and finish are unusually dry, there are few of the enjoyable Cameroon flavors I’ve found in other sticks, and I encountered harshness at several points along the way. All in all, I think you can easily find far better Cameroons.

Verdict = Sell.

    When I first tried these I was expecting that Cameroon flavor, while it is there faintly, it isn't my first choice for a Cameroon. But they've grown on me and I do like the flavors. You are right that they do have a dryness to them.
