"I may have thought that this cigar was trying to hard, but it really was good. So many changes with some great mouth feel. It keeps you interested and will have something for everyone. It is a time investment but if you give it a shot you will be rewarded." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
"This is an exquisite, refined cigar. Distinct, well-defined flavors all around accentuated by a crisp burn line and overall fantastic construction. As my good friend Tut occasionally says “I can feel the blender’s intent while smoking this cigar” and I would agree with him in this case. My gut says this is a very pricey cigar but, as my wife would happily tell you, I’ve been wrong many many times before..." -Matt Cade (CADE)
"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.)
" Where I was unimpressed by the first third of this cigar, it won me over in the end. All the flavors came together to create a wonderful smoking experience. If you are a fan of dark, earthy flavors with hints of sweetness you should pick up a few of these to enjoy. " -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
