Camacho 1962 – Cigar Review

Camacho 1962 Robusto Review

This cigar by Camacho is only available at CI.

It features an elegant chocolate brown criollo wrapper that is a little oily with only 2 medium sized veins.

The 1962 is spongy feeling but still heavy in the hand.  The draw was spot on perfect when punched!

This cigar has a shockingly sweet cedary smell which is a real surprise for a Camacho.  Very fine looking and smelling premium cigar.

The first third  features a smooth and mellow toasty/earthy flavor followed by a slightly sweet finish.  The burn got off track but quickly corrected itself.  The dark gray and black ash held on strong for over an inch.

The second third opened up with a burst of sweet citrus.  I love it!  It had a very earthy and nutty core and a dry toasty finish.  It is only mild/medium bodied right now.  Great draw and construction so far.

The final third increased to medium bodied smoke.  A plethora of pepper replaced the previous sweetness.  It has a peppery earthy flavor followed by a very dry spicy finish.  The cigar had great construction, but burned down quite fast.  This robusto lasted under an hour.

Overall, I would not consider this a complex cigar, but the very tasty flavors did transition a couple of times.  This Camacho is unique because of it’s mild/medium body but retained the signature “strength” of the Camacho brand.  This budget premium has a lot to offer for the fan of medium bodied cigars.  I would like to score a couple more of them and I hope you do as well.

Flavor and Taste: 17/20
Construction: 9/10
Wrapper: 5/5
Value: 8/10
Would I buy a Box: 4/5
Total: 43/50
