The Camacho Liberty Series 2005 Throwback has a beautiful presentation in a bright red cedar coffin with a black seal with silver stars. Once opened the cigar is wrapped in tissue paper. The cigar itself is a nice mix of milk and dark chocolate colors with a red white a blue band prominently displaying the 2005 Throwback.
Aroma – Perfumed Cedar
Type of Cut – Straight
Cold Draw – Cedar and Wood
First Third – The first third starts off with a creamy cocoa note followed by pepper and wood on the finish. Soon after this third gets going a real nice leather comes out on the finish and is long lingering. Towards the middle of the third the cocoa goes away and the tangy cedar and spice notes come forth. Burn is sharp and ash held through the third.
Second Third – Creamy cocoa again starts this third on the transition followed by that wood and tangy cedar note. A nice long leather finish mixed with a subtle anise like note. The burn turns wavy and ash fell at the beginning of the third.
Final Third – This third gets real woody with oak and cedar. The leather becomes subtle and a really pronounced anise note like a good and plenty candy comes out. Really a full bodied cigar. The burn stayed slightly wavy.
Whiskey – Jack Daniels Single Barrel
Overall a ton of nice flavors in this Camacho Liberty Series 2005 Throwback. The wood and cedar are the main notes mixed in with the cocoa, spice, pepper and an anise finish make the stick a nice complex smoking experience. I love this release every year and already can’t wait until they release the 2019!
