Camacho has just launched their American Barrel Aged line of cigars. Made up of primarily American tobacco (Connecticut Broadleaf, Pennsylvania), the American Barrel Aged’s heart comes from a single Corojo filler leaf that has been aged in a bourbon barrel for 5 months. The American Barrel Aged is also the first release under Camacho’s new Master Built Series.
“American Barrel-Aged is something we have been working on for some time and we are very excited to finally share it with aficionados now in the US and across global markets in the near future. This project marks the first time a Camacho core line has been made outside of Honduras and we are extremely proud of what our master builders in the Dominican Republic have brought to life. Barrel aging is a very tedious and hands-on process. We are aging around 2,000 lbs of Corojo filler tobacco and rotating the barrels one leaf at a time every few weeks. Each batch takes a full five months to complete and requires constant attention to ensure the proper journey for this special tobacco,” said Dylan Austin, Director of Marketing for Davidoff of Geneva USA.
Expect a full bodied cigar with bold and intense flavors. Available in 3 Sizes: Robusto (5 x 50), Toro (6 x 50), and Gordo (6 x 60).
