Learning about Camacho Cigars from Christian Eiroa

Christian Eiroa of Camacho Cigars

A few days ago I headed down to my parents house to pay them a visit. While I was there my father got to talking about this email he received from Cigars International in regards to a Camacho Event they had planned. The email stated that they were having Christian Eiroa, from Camacho Cigars, out for a informational session on the brand and the family history.

Due to limited seating each attendee was asked to call ahead and reserve a seat. I picked up the phone and gave CI a call to reserve my seat and ask if it would be alright if I recorded the session. After a short conversation my seat was reserved and I had the green light on recording Christian’s talk pending Camacho’s approval.

The following day I got the go ahead from Camacho and we were all set for the event. After the IPCPR trouble I had with my Camera and sound quality, I ordered up a shotgun mic and accessory rail so that audio wouldn’t be an issue.

I got to the store and introduced myself and was treated very well by all of the CI staff. I picked up a few cigars and settled in for the first talk. For the second talk I sat in once again, this time armed with a video setup in the corner to share the experience with the Stogie Review viewers.

Check out what Christian had to say about the brand as well as a little family history. I found it to be entertaining and informative. The video runs a little over a half an hour.


Once your finished with the video drop a comment and let me know if you would be interested in seeing more of these types of videos. With the CI Superstore being only an hour away, I may be able to do more of these videos on location.

  1. Capturing the fart at about 31 minutes in is a nice touch. The video itself is really nice Walt. Good work. I actualy learned quite a bit about Camacho cigars that I did not know before. I think this type of interview is a very good idea so any more “SR On Location at CI Videos” you can do would be great.

  2. Great video! I’ve never been to an event, so I’m fascinated by these stories. I would however try and get these companies (camacho,CI) to throw you some sponsorship, because this is fantastic advertising for both of them.

    So my vote is to keep doing them…with the stipulation that SR get a little something out of it…maybe something you could offer for a contest.

  3. Very cool video Walt! Chrisitan seems like a very nice down to earth kind of guy. Like one of us, except with more money and more cigars and…well, never mind. 🙂

    While I’ve read most of the info Christian presented, it was very nice to hear it straight from the man himself. If there are more opportunities to attend similar events I’d definitely love to see them. (or better yet, once I’m home I can drive up and be there in person!).

  4. Extremely informational video Walt! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and learned a lot. You should definitely do more of these if you can. I’m also going to have to try some of the Camacho cigars he mentioned.
    The sound was great in this video, so I guess that shotgun mic and accessory rail setup really worked out well.

  5. Christian came to an event local to me and seemed like a real cool guy. I liked the video Walt. I think these are a good idea.

  6. Thanks for the video, Walt. This is a great idea and I’d love to see more of these in the future.

    It’s great to hear this information first hand, even though a lot of it has been published before. I rarely have the opportunity to smoke cigars when I travel, so I thought what he said about cigars smoking differently in different climates was interesting. Is this something you guys have discussed on YQMA?

  7. Thanks for all the kind words and I’m glad you all enjoyed it. It was fun to do something out of the ordinary like this. I’ll definitely try and do more in the future.

    Cigarfan,
    I don’t think we ever discussed this on YQMA. It was something that popped up just last weekend while visiting my parents. I was still on the video focus from IPCPR (which was 2 days prior to my visit) and I thought why not try and get this recorded.

    I’m happy with the end result and will do what I can about recording more in the future.

    -Walt

  8. Thanks for the video Walt. Being the Camacho whore that I am I found it really interesting. And the sound was great so good investment on the mike. Please do more of these.
