Camacho American Barrel Aged

This week I decided to check out a cigar I think every bourbon fan will find interesting, the Camacho American Barrel Aged Toro. As the name implies, a portion of the tobacco in the blend (the corojo) spent some time in bourbon barrels- 5 months to be exact. And that’s after it spent 6 previous years aging. As a whiskey enthusiast, I felt obliged to light a few up and see if a good idea translates into a great cigar. Click the play button below to see how that turned out. (Don’t worry, it’s only 6:40, you’ll barely miss those minutes.)

Cigar Stats:
Size: 6 x 50
Wrapper: American Broadleaf
Binder: American Broadleaf
Filler: American Broadleaf, Pennsylvania Maduro, Barrel-Aged Corojo
Beverage: Coffee, Eagle Rare bourbon
Source: Purchased by reviewer
Price: MSRP $11

  • There’s a considerable amount of relevant information on the bands. I like that.
  • The cigar in video had minor wrapper damage. It did not affect the smoking experience. Previous cigars had no such damage.
  • The profile was a pretty heavy combination of earth, oak, pepper, leather with some spices and some sweet notes. There are minor flavor developments, but the cigar is very similar from beginning to end.
  • This is the 40th Camacho Cigar review featured on Stogie Review.
  • Anyone for rye barrel tobacco?
  • This isn’t a strong cigar, but it is a full-bodied one. Don’t be deterred by concerns over power.
  • As expected, bourbon makes a big difference. Recommended.
  • This Bayou Edition of the Week In Smoke posts was referenced.
  • It’s good, and will likely appeal to bourbon drinkers and Camacho fans.

  1. I’ll have to grab a few of these sometime. I will also have to remember the coffee to bourbon switch for those mornings when I run out of Java, lol. Love the Eagle Rare. I think it’s a very cigar friendly whiskey.

  2. My brother picked up the 60×60 and despite the fact that I am not a big ring fan I really loved this cigar. I was somewhat surprised that my local B&M did not recommend it. I stopped in to pick up an illusione MJ12 and he seemed really excited for the CAO Pilon. The pilon was a good cigar but this Camacho is really fantastic. At first I was thinking; American, bourbon, aged…marketing gimmick, but the American Barrel is a solid smoke. Really impressed with the Camacho Ecuador and the American Barrel.

    Also, thank you for your coverage and hard work at ICPCR this year. It looked like SReview wasn’t going to be there.

    Thanks on behalf of all of us out here that wish we could attend

    Peace

  3. I had one pre release, and several since. It really pairs well with bourbon. I had Old Medley 101 proof, and it matches up well.

    1. It seems to hold up well even against hotter, higher-proof bourbons. I went Eagle Rare in this case because it’s widely available, very good and probably appeals to more people than the barrel-proof firewater I usually drink.
