"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)
"I enjoyed this cigar very much. The woody and nutty flavors were fantastic and the performance showed off the high quality tobacco and expertise of the roller. The nice white ash was a great contrast to the dark wrapper and looked fantastic while smoking. I will pick up a few more of these in the future. Definitely recommend trying this cigar if you like a full flavored smoke with a good transition from start to finish. " -Adam B. (Bushboy)
"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.)

"I don't always reach for the cigar with the herb and spice notes, however this one was very enjoyable. The flavors stayed away from an overwhelming spice flavor, and just teased the palate with welcomed flavors. Overall this was a great smoke that will be enjoyed again after the reveal. The strength allows this cigar to be enjoyed by the novice and the connoisseur. " -Adam B. (Bushboy)
Camacho Cigars will reintroduce the Coyolar. The Coyolar is built around tobaccos from the volcanic soils of a small farm at the base of the mountains immediately bordering Nicaragua and Honduras. This mineral-rich soil imparts a unique color, texture, and flavor intensity to the tobacco. The Coyolar is a Honduran Puro and one of Camacho’s most respected cigar blends.
"A slower cadence benefits this stick. Subtle changes can be detected that might otherwise be missed with a more aggressive draw. While I didn't find a basket of flavors, the transitions present, especially in the final third, were very nice. There was a comforting creaminess present throughout the majority of the cigar." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
