Camacho Select is the first Cameroon-wrapped cigar from Tabacos Rancho Jamastran. Blended by family patriarch Julio Eiroa, the Camacho Select line is his rebellion of sorts against stronger cigars. Camacho Selects are easygoing and balanced, with nutty flavors and some dry notes. The Torpedo is the best of the line, measuring 6 1/8 inches by 54 ring. The Eiroas are tobacco growers as well as cigarmakers, and Julio has been growing in Honduras’ Jamastran Valley since 1962. Many of the cigars he makes are puros, but the Camacho Select is a hybrid, combining Honduran leaf with Cameroon, a somewhat uncommon blend. It makes for a cedary, earthy and nutty smoke with a pleasant smooth character, and not too much kick.

A narrow tip on this oily, streaky pyramid, which emanates a big, spicy aroma as it burns. Profound cedar notes are balanced by earthy, nutty flavors pleasantly peppered with a spiciness that continues on to the finish.

Well made and easy drawing, this cigar is predominantly woody and cedary in character. A medium-bodied smoke overall.
