Today we have a very special review. The cigar for this review is a Camacho – El Legend-Ario. What makes this review so special is that it is part of a joint review that Jerry and I conducted with Bob and Dale from the Dog Watch Social Club.
First and foremost we would like to thank Bob and Dale for letting us sit in on their show to enjoy a good cigar with them. Even with some nervous jitters, the show was a lot of fun and a new experience for the both of us.
The Dog Watch Social Club comes highly recommended by Jerry and I. The show has quickly become a part of our cigar rituals and we urge you to take a listen if you’re not already a fan. The current show, as well as archives of previous shows can be found at www.dogwatchsocialclub.com
Our first impression with this cigar upon picking it up was that it had a well constructed wrapper with small veins and a firm feel. This particular cigar came without a band. Even without the band this stick had a very elegant appearance. The pre light draw was excellent. Upon lighting we all had a smooth even burn.
This cigar produced lots of smoke that left a bit of spice that tickled the back of the throat. Combined with the woodsy flavor and smooth smoke this made for an excellent first impression.
After about an inch or so into this cigar we felt that body of this cigar was a little surprising. This blend was different than other Camacho cigars that we had experiences with. We felt as though this was a solid medium body cigar with a nice woodsy flavor
A little further down the cigar we all made mention to some peppery notes we began to pick up. The burn at this point was slow making for a long lasting smoke. The ash was firm and light in color and the resting smoke was light and produced an attractive aroma.
At the half way point we all agreed that the flavor of this cigar was very consistent. The draw was still excellent producing lots of smoke. The smoke had a creamy light finish that seemed to flow off the pallet then slowly sneak back up, producing an enjoyable smoke.
The remainder of the cigar was very consistent and flavorful. No one experienced any burn issues or mentioned needing to relight their cigar.
To sum things up, we felt that this was a well blended cigar. There were no overpowering flavors or construction flaws that drew away form the smoking pleasure. This is definitely a cigar to try if your into medium bodied cigars.
In closing we would like to thank Bob and Dale from the Dog Watch Social Club.
It was a pleasure to be a part of the show, and we hope to do it again sometime.
