"This cigar was right in my wheelhouse as far as flavors go. Lots of earth, dark chocolate, leather, coffee and some black cherry and walnut notes. This is definitely one of the better maduros I've enjoyed lately and I am anxious to see what it is. Highly recommended for fans of full flavored, full bodied smokes." -Kevin J. (maninblack77)

"If you are looking for a deep, heavy-flavored blend without being too strong this is perfect. The mix of leather and hickory smoke held a solid taste throughout the entire cigar. An opening of a bit of cedar sweetness, and some final pepper and mineral flavor add a bit of complexity to keep it interesting. I'll absolutely revisit this in the future." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
Camacho Cigars has announced the third in their Factory Unleashed Series, Camacho Factory Unleashed 3. This new blend is meant...
"This was a very enjoyable cigar from start to finish. Surprising sweet at the start, almost to the level of it was intentional and not done naturally, though I know this is not a flavored or infused cigar. The finish was dark, earthy and a little spicy, which went well with the sweet beginning. The strength was well behaved all the way through as well, so this should not put anyone on edge with fears of "too strong of a cigar." The burn and draw performed very well from the pre-light on, better than many cigars I have smoked recently. This cigar would go great with a nice pour of bourbon or even an extra anejo tequila! Looking forward to adding these to the humi! " -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
2021 will mark the 19th year that Camacho has released a Liberty cigar. This annual release celebrates the birth and history of the United States. This blend undergoes extended fermentation and aging to aid in the marrying of the multi-regional tobaccos.
"Overall I really enjoyed the journey with this cigar though it seemed to be almost two worlds. Starting and ending there was such a sweet chocolatey flavor, but through the middle, there was a solid smoky bbq style taste on paper it doesn't seem to go together but I truthfully barely noticed the slow transition between them. " -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
