Shortly after next week's International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers trade show in Las Vegas, be sure to check behind you when inside your local cigar shop humidor.
That's when the new Camacho Check Six, the newest release in the company's Brotherhood Series, will begin to show up on store shelves. The cigar's name is a nod to the common slang term tactical pilots use when they watch behind another's plane, which is the most vulnerable to an attack.
Rolled with a Habana 2000 wrapper grown in Ecuador, Check Six sports a Nicaraguan Criollo '98 binder and fillers from Nicaragua, Honduras and the Dominican Republic. The cigar will come in one size only, a 6 inch by 50 ring gauge toro, and it will be packed in 20-count boxes and retail for $12.50 per cigar. Only 4,000 boxes will ship in the United States, with another 1,000 shipping to Europe and the rest of the world.
Like Shellback, the first cigar in the Brotherhood Series, Check Six is rolled at the AgroIndustrias Laepe S.A. factory in Honduras.
"We are very excited about this second release under our Brotherhood Series," said Dylan Austin, vice president of marketing for Davidoff of Geneva USA, which owns Camacho. "While the concept was inspired by a common bond shared amongst the military brotherhood, it is also aspirational for many. We all have people in our lives that we know have our back."
