Cigar Reviewed: Camacho Connecticut
Smoked at: Atlanta
Cigar size: Toro 6×50
I find every Camacho I smoke pays dividends. Whether it is the connecticut, criollo or triple maduro, one is never disappointed during the hour-long experience. Camacho, a subsidiary of Davidoff, is known to have more of a kick, than the buttery smooth Davidoff line. When it comes to this stick, this is most definitely a compliment.
Shortly after toasting, one noticed a spicy, floral bouquet with light-medium body smoke. The draw is smooth...just right. As we get well into the first third/second third, there are zero burn issues and the ash is a perfect light gray.
I start picking up hints of citrus, orange zest coupled with a black pepper kick which is not overwhelming, and quite pleasant with an IPA (in this case) or a wheat beer. Upon licking my lips after a retrohale, my lips begin to tingle from the notes of pepper and now that we're close to the final third, cedar.
During the final third, undertones of cedar, hay and pepper are constant with just a hint of citrus left. This is a wonderful morning or early afternoon smoke you won't regret purchasing.
