Camachos historically have been Honduran puros, but the brand has lately been branching out with new tobaccos. Later this month, the newest example—Camacho Ecuador—will hit the market, bringing a Havana-seed Ecuador wrapper around what's being described as a powerful blend.
The cigar is made by combining the Ecuador Havana wrapper with Brazilian Mata Fina binder, a touch of Dominican Pelo de Oro ligero filler plus filler leaves of high-priming Honduran tobaccos.
The company describes the new brand as a medium-to full-bodied smoke. It will come in five sizes. There's a Robusto measuring five inches long with a ring gauge of 50 (suggested retail price $6.80); a 6 by 50 Toro ($7.00); Churchill (7 by 48, $7.50); Figurado (6 1/8 by 54, $7.80) and Gordo (6 by 60, $8.00).
Nearly one year ago, Camacho embarked on a major repackaging and reblending of its line. This newest version will ship across the United States later this month.
