Cigar Review: Camacho Hard Charger

Camacho Hard Charger

Size – Toro

Wrapper – ​Connecticut Broadleaf

Tobacco Blend – Honduran 

Pricing – $13.00

Body – Medium

Construction/Appearance:

This Camacho Hard Charger is Dark Chocolate in color with some marbled milk chocolate undertones. Some stitch like veins show themselves along with tightly wrapped yet visible seams. 

Pre-Light: 

Aroma – Chocolate, Cedar, Anise

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Cedar and Raisin

After Toast:

First Third – Some bold spice and earth notes kick this off with some black pepper sitting heavy on the palate during the finish. The burn is wavy and ash holds through the third. 

Second Third- The earth and spice continue to prevail here while the pepper really dies down to almost non-existent. The burn remains wavy and ash falls at the halfway point. 

Final Third – Earth and spice continue into this third. The spice almost turns gum drop like, really nice. The burn remains sharp. 

Suggested Pairing:

Bourbon – Woodford Reserve

Wine – Aglianico del Vulture

Overall Experience:

Overall this Camacho Hard Charger is a pretty simple cigar. The flavor profile was nice, but did not really have much in terms of transition or complexity. This is a case of a cigar doing a few things really well instead of doing a lot of things so so. I would smoke this again, but would have liked some more complexity for a stick in this price range.
