Camacho Liberty 2006

Camacho Liberty - Band

This week I have the Camacho Liberty 2006 Edition. These cigars are limited to 40,000 cigars total and sell for about $14.00 each. This was a cigar that I had on my wish list for some time. Thanks to Stephen, I can now smile and cross it off the list. Thanks again Stephen!

Camacho Liberty - Box

Each Camacho Liberty comes packaged in a Spanish cedar coffin with a paint job commemorating the original 13 colonies. The wrapper is a Cameroon and the filler contains “some” Pre-Embargo Pelo de Oro tobacco from the old DWG Cigar Company in Lima, Ohio. The remainder of the cigar is a secret.

This cigar was constructed very well. The wrapper was slightly rough but had an excellent appearance. When pinched the cigar felt a little lumpy and soft in spots, but this is something I have come to expect with Camacho Products. After looking things over I pulled my cutter from its sleeve and clipped the head. The pre light draw was very good but produced a somewhat bland flavor.

After my quick inspection I began the lighting process. After a quick toast and light the cigar began to produce thick clouds of smoke. The initial flavor was mostly spice without much depth behind it. The finish was a little harsh and caught me in the back of my throat, but quickly went away after the first few puffs.

Camacho Liberty - 1st Third

As I smoked into the first third, the base flavor developed into a woody flavor with some saltiness blended in. The salty flavor was enough to get me salivating, at which point I really began to enjoy the flavor. The draw remained good while the burn was even and slow. The body at this point was medium with a short and clean finish.

Camacho Liberty - 2nd Third

The second third of the Camacho Liberty was much like the first. The draw was still free and producing a high volume of smoke. The resting smoke was about average but had a sort of blue tint to it. The room aroma was very mild and I could hardly notice it while I smoked deeper into the cigar. The body was getting a little heavier, but it was a very slow and gradual build. The finish remained short and smooth making for a very good smoke.

Camacho Liberty - Final Third

The final portion of the cigar changed slightly, but for the most part was very consistent. The base flavor seemed to become a deeper and darker wood like flavor that I was enjoying more and more as it developed. As the cigar burned down, the spicy flavor I mentioned at the start of the stick really came through and was a little intense when blown through my sinuses. The finish remained short and smooth while the body peaked in the Medium to Full range.

Overall I think that this is a very good cigar, but not one I could smoke on a regular basis. Due to the price point of about $14.00 I think that if I were to smoke another it would have to be for a special occasion only. This is definitely not the cigar to take with you when heading to a barbecue or to the local tavern.

Thanks once again Stephen.

  1. Fantastic review Walt! $14 is a little steep for me to go out and buy but it sounds enjoyable.

    No review from Jerry this week?

  2. Nice review Walt, as usual! I agree – good cigar, worth it for the collector value, but a tad expensive just for the cigar itself. I think a couple other Camacho’s taste way better for the money. You know I have one though in the collection!!

    Congrats on the RCR gig. Hope that works out well!

  3. great review Walt! i’m glad you enjoyed those sticks. i’m with you about the pre-embargo filler. it’s like losing your car. it just doesn’t happen (that often…haha!) i kept telling you that i would reserve my impressions of the cigar until after you had a chance to smoke them. my notes have very much the same flavors. very smooth in the middle, i picked up some cedar and cocoa as well. i couldn’t get over how silky the wrapper felt, especially for a cameroon. the Aurora Preferidos i have aren’t nearly as nice.

    funny thing, i was about 1/2 way thru a CAO Vision i picked up today, when you mentioned you had received a couple. can’t wait for that review. that stick actually surprised me! it’s not all hype, believe it or not.

    just wanted to take a quick second and thank YOU GUYS for all the free info you provide week after week for all of us. i hope i speak for everyone that tunes in by saying we really appreciate all time and effort it takes. our hats off to all of you! thanks again!

  4. Great review walt! im new to cigar smoking and new to its an awesome website, keep up the good work

  5. Excellent review Walt. I like the variety of reviews you three do. Spread the gambit from cheap to the special occasion cigars or regular daily’s if your a movie star or Governor of California.

    That is one fancy box!!! Dang, think that impressed me more then the cigar.


  6. Walt, great review! I have a 2 of these resting in the humi now along with a 2005. Looking forward to the right time to light one of these babies up!


  7. Thanks for the review Walt.

    I picked two different Camacho Libertys (this one and the 05) a little over a week ago and I’m looking forward to them.

  8. Hi Walt! Hope you guys are still doing well! I have a few of these sticks still aging in my humidor. I’ll try and send you guys some pics and tasting notes, 8 years later! Thanks again for all you do!
