"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)

"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.

"Overall this smoke was unlike anything I smoked before. It had a unique shape and some unique and enjoyable flavors. It was more mild...teetering on the medium side but this allowed the flavors to shine through nicely. However the cigar never really shyed away from its core assortment of spices and sweetness which did tend to lose my interest after the second third." -Will (Dubv23)
"I would definitely buy this if it was priced right. Aside from the smoke being dry, I enjoyed it from start to finish. There was never a bitter note in the lineup of many interesting flavors. The progression continued as I smoked and the flavors added to each other, never taking away from the rest. I stored this cigar at 67% for the time it was in my possession." -Paul (pmr1010)

"This cigar really did it for me. The first third was by far my favorite but the rest of the cigar didn't disappoint. Little strong toward the end but luckily I had recently had a meal. " -Zane G. (Zane)
" 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)
PINELLAS PARK, FL (JUNE 19, 2017) –– Camacho, the world’s leading brand of bold cigars, is proud to introduce the new 2017 Camacho Liberty, celebrating “Fifteen Years Strong” for the long-standing special edition series. The Camacho Liberty, starting with its inaugural release back in 2002, has become a staple each year for collectors and aficionados of bold, full-frontal cigars. Since its inception, this yearly special edition has launched just ahead of the 4th of July holiday and is a celebratory smoke built to honor the birth of the United States. The crafting of each Liberty cigar begins 12 months before the tobacco hits the rolling table, with the final selection drawn from the best concept blends developed over that previous year. The cigars are then rolled and left to sit for more than 6 months.
"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)
