"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)

"This was an amazing smoke. Beautifully crafted, great flavors that were in my wheelhouse, I don't have anything bad to say about it. I'd score it a 95. Definitely would buy a box of these. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
Camacho have announced the release of the original Diploma in the 11/18 figurado format. Made with hand-selected high priming Original Corojo tobaccos, the Camacho Diploma blend has been re-introduced to the marketplace for smokers who want a unique, intense and flavorful cigar.
"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, and as mentioned earlier, I could easily see starting a lazy weekend morning with this cigar and a nice medium roast coffee. While this cigar was flavor filled, the lack of strength and body might turn some smokers off, so I can't say this is a cigar for "everyone". This is a cigar that I would keep a fiver on hand in the humi for those times when I want something different, and I would not hesitate to give one of these to a less experienced smoker so they can experience an complex blend of flavors, without being overly powerful and causing an unpleasant smoking experience. This is one darn good cigar" -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
"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)
