Cigar Aficionado

Camacho Corojo Diadema
60 60
Tasting Note
The 8 by 60 Camacho Corojo Diadema is an imposing sight. The all-Honduran cigar is the biggest cigar in our Top 25. It has a complex shape, with various curves, but its true beauty is in its flavor. There’s a lot of room in this cigar for tobacco leaves, and the Diadema has a fittingly complex flavor, with notes of sweet wood, cedar, walnuts and leather. It’s medium to full in body, one of the best cigars made by the Eiroa family. Production is limited due to the extremely large leaf needed to wrap such a monster.

An enormous, symmetrically shaped figurado that is tapered at both ends. It burns evenly for such a bulbous cigar showing spice, dark chocolate and some licorice flavor.

A nicely crafted figurado with superb texture to the wrapper. It smokes beautifully. It has complex flavors including sweet wood, cedar, walnuts, and leather and steel. Medium to full bodied.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Feb 01, 2003 | Score: 89

A big, complex shape that's rolled well. It draws fine. The smoke is strong, intensely leathery, with heavy coffee flavor and hints of anise

Issue: Cigar Insider: May 01, 2002 | Score: 86

An old-style shape, this big cigar is veiny, with an oily wrapper. It's woody and earthy, with a leathery and dirty flavor. Medium to full bodied.
