Camacho has operated as a sort of “booth within a booth,” located within Davidoff’s massive layout since Davidoff re-launched the brand in 2013. Since then, the overall Davidoff/Camacho layout has remained largely the same, with Camacho showcasing their cigars in glass-encased pillars that stretch the length of their booth. At the entrance, Camacho displays their “latest and greatest,” which is often accompanied by extravagant props that fit the theme. For 2013, this was a large terrarium filled with live scorpions. For 2016, there was a motorcycle with accompanying virtual reality simulation. But 2017’s display was closest to 2015, as Camacho centered the look around their new Nicaraguan Barrel-Aged project (2015 marked the American Barrel-Aged project). As such, the booth was decked in wood and barrels that were used as pillars to display the new cigars.

Camacho Liberty 2017

The Camacho Liberty Series began in 2002, with the brand releasing a special, limited edition blend on an annual basis. This year’s version is dubbed “15 Years Strong,” marking an impressive milestone that represents one of the longest-running limited cigar releases available today.

Camacho Liberty 2017 focuses on Estelí-grown Corojo 99 tobaccos, incorporating the most of this particular varietal ever used on a Camacho cigar. The cigars veer from Camacho’s signature 11/18 figurado size, instead opting for a more substantial “Super Toro.” This blend is reportedly the last in the fan-favorite series, with additional releases coming in the form of re-releases from the vast collection of vintage blends released over the years.

The cigars began shipping before the IPCPR show (June 22nd).

Nicaraguan Barrel-Aged

Camacho introduced their high-end Master Built Series in 2015 with the launch of American Barrel-Aged, where tobaccos within the blend were aged in used American bourbon barrels. The series received its followup release a year later with Camacho Powerband. And the series grew to three cigars (four, if you count Cigar Dojo/Camacho Imperial Stout Barrel-Aged) in 2017, with Camacho adding Nicaraguan Barrel-Aged to the lineup.



These cigars follow a similar concept as American Barrel-Aged, only utilizing a new, Nicaraguan-focused blend and aging tobaccos in Flor de Caña rum barrels (Nicaragua’s most popular spirit). Notably, the barrel-aged tobaccos are Nicaraguan Corojo ’99, rather Camacho’s usual Honduran Original Corojo leaf (used for both American Barrel-Aged and Imperial Stout Barrel-Aged).

These cigars began shipping before the IPCPR show (June 22nd), launching in a variety of formats that include a tubo variant and 3-count assortments (one of each size).
