The original Camacho Coyolar line was released in 2005 before Davidoff took over Camacho. This Honduran puro was discontinued in 2013 when the company re-branded all its lines. In 2018, the line was re-introduced and re-blended with the brands’ new look and feel for bands and boxes.
This cigar was reviewed blind (no bands) by a panel of at least 4 reviewers. They did not know what they were smoking beforehand. The scores are an average of all the reviewers' scores with outliers removed. All of our cigars reviewed are shipped to the panelists with Boveda packs to ensure optimal smoking experience.
The tobacco for this cigar is said to all come from the same 15 acre plot where “Coyolar was first born”. It is still a Honduran puro and the blend uses criollo tobacco, not the usual corojo the company is known for. The new version comes in the same vitolas as the original and in boxes of 25 cigars: Perfecto #1 (4 1/2 x 50) — $8.50, Rothschild (4 1/2 x 50) — $8.50, Super Toro (6 1/2 x 52) — $9, Titan (6 x 60) — $10.00, Figurado (6 x 54) — $9.50. Camacho Coyolar is rolled at Diadema Cigars de Honduras, S.A., in Danlí, Honduras.

“This cigar is a very well rolled cigar with a maduro wrapper. The seams on this cigar are almost invisible which adds to the overall appearance of this cigar.” –Daniel S. (Daniel S.)
“Big rich notes of fermented funkiness. You can damn near smell this thing from across the room. ” –John I. (John I.)
“This is an interesting mix of flavors for my palette. I immediately got a mouthful of nutmeg and black and white pepper. There wasn’t a sweetness that I expected but the baking spice is pleasant. As I proceeded into the first third there was a mild buttery taste with just a splash of leather and a mild floral note.The cigar smooths out about an inch and a quarter in and I can taste the buttery notes more.” –Diana (ArmyRN)
“My initial puffs reveal to me a wide open draw and a veritable explosion of rich smoke that is full of bold and spicy black pepper and surfing espresso. Through the nose the smoke is nearly overpowering but enhances the flavors enough that I find myself retrohaling at least every other puff. This is a really enjoyable start to a visually appealing cigar” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
“The pepper has totally settled down but it’s there in a smooth black pepper sort of way in the background. Nutmeg is still there with more of a nutty note and the buttery baking flavor makes this cigar very pleasant for me. Still just a hint of leather. I wouldn’t mind more but it’s still good. The floral note is hard to describe. It’s not a flowery sweetness but more of an earthy type flower like a geranium leaves. There is a slight transition of dark chocolate cocoa that is mild but present.” –Diana (ArmyRN)
“Into the second portion the proper is fading on my palate while the espresso has developed into a mocha due to an influx of chocolate and cream. The strength is fading a bit as well but the smoke overall is approaching full bodied. Through the nose the smoke has retained its peppery character.” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
“The flavors of this cigar have melded together and it is a smooth and pleasant cigar. I’m wanting a nice cup of coffee with it
and am enjoying the different groups of flavoring; baking, earthy, floral and spicy. It’s definitely getting more earthy and I really like this cigar. Nice progression for me and lots of interesting transitions.” –Diana (ArmyRN)
“This is finally settling down toward the finish. Burn has finally become pretty consistent. Flavor wise, the sweetness continues to dominate with some herbaceous qualities on the finish as well. ” –John I. (John I.)
“No problems with the draw and it stayed consistent throughout the smoking experience. I was worried it might be a bit too loose but it wasn’t and I have no complaints at all.” –Diana (ArmyRN)
“I had to relight this cigar several times and also had to touch it up several times.” –Daniel S. (Daniel S.)
“Probably under-filled, and the wrapper may just have held to much moisture to burn well, or some combination of those factors. Just wouldn’t burn correctly. Would have pitched it well before the halfway point if this weren’t for a review. ” –John I. (John I.)
Overall Strength: Medium-Strong
Overall Body/Complexity: Medium-Full
Experience Overall: 86
“If this was a cigar I bought and not one I was reviewing I would not have made it past the first third. I unfortunately hung in there with sour and bitter notes this cigar had to offer. As I said early the tunneling was more than likely the cause of the bitterness but none the less that is what I was getting.” –Daniel S. (Daniel S.)
“In terms of flavor this may have merited a better rating than poor, but the horrendous construction marred the limited positives going on here. I certainly hope the issues with this cigar aren’t characteristic of the whole line. ” –John I. (John I.)
“I really like this cigar and the complexity of flavors that I experienced. There was more progression and favor than I originally expected and the cigar kept me interested all the way through. I’d smoke it again and would pair it with a nice cup of smooth medium roasted cold brew. Nicely done!” –Diana (ArmyRN)
“This is one of those smokes that I’m going to tell all of my friends about… Flavorful, plenty of strength, and an overall winning situation… Good enough to smoke right now and good enough to get another box for aging.” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
Smoking Time (in minutes): 68
