There’s a new line joining the extensive Camacho portfolio next week and it’s named after the hottest cigar-producing country in the industry—Camacho Nicaragua. Although the blend is a composition of tobacco from many countries, the brand name emphasizes the Nicaraguan leaf in its filler. The cigars will be on their way to shops beginning July 20.
Camacho Nicaragua consists of a dark, Ecuadoran wrapper, Honduran binder and filler tobacco from Nicaragua, Honduras and the Dominican Republic. It’s billed as a medium- to full-bodied blend and made in three sizes: Robusto, measuring 5 inches by 52 ring gauge; Toro, at 6 by 50 and Churchill, at 7 by 56. They range in price from $8.60 to $9.50 and are packaged in 20-count boxes.
Since Davidoff acquired Camacho from the Eiroa family in 2008, the cigars have been completely repackaged with bold fonts and bright colors for design continuity across the many Camacho lines and varieties.
This isn’t the first Camacho with a Nicaraguan theme, and the cigar differs from the Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel Aged, which came out three years ago. And despite the word Nicaragua in its name, Camacho Nicaragua (like most Camachos) is rolled in Honduras, produced at the Diadema Cigars de Honduras S.A. factory, located in Danlí, Honduras.
