Camacho, the world’s leading brand of bold cigars, is proud to introduce its third Master-Built release, Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel-Aged. A fearlessly precise, powerfully complex and undeniably intense new cigar experience from Camacho.
Having pioneered and perfected the art of aging Original Corojo tobacco in Kentucky Bourbon barrels for American Barrel-Aged, Camacho’s master builders have continued their relentless quest, venturing further south to harness the wild flavors of Nicaragua. Starting with the sweet, spicy, and oaky flavors that define tobacco from this region, Estelí-grown Corojo is aged in some of the world’s oldest Nicaraguan rum barrels. Once filled with bourbon, these well-seasoned rum barrels were hand selected for optimal humidity and add layers of complexity for an entirely unique experience. Toasted flavors combined with leather and oak are rounded out by sweet flavors and caramel notes from the aged rum. Lastly, the proprietary Powerband™ bunching process amplifies this complex combination, resulting in a peak performance flavor explosion that once again pushes the limits.

The spiciness of the Honduran Corojo Ligero and the Piloto Cubano in combination with the deep, oaky and sweet flavors of the Nicaraguan Corojo Barrel Aged deliver a completely new taste experience. Complex, heady and multi layered with notes of wood, leather and nuts never leaving a dull moment for your palate. In addition, the creaminess from the Habano Ecuador wrapper is triggering the intensity of the filler tobaccos. The proprietary Powerband™ bunching delivers an excellent burn and perfect draw, a unique cigar that performs as well as it tastes.
Fans of both Rum and Bourbon will find two very different experiences between the two barrel-aged blends. American Barrel-Aged draws more impact from the charred interior of the bourbon barrel and earthy notes from the Broadleaf tobaccos. While Nicaraguan Barrel-Aged draws more oaky notes, sweetness from the spent rum and spicy notes from the Nicaraguan Corojo. Two impactful blends, two unique barrel-aged taste experiences to embark on.
