Camacho has announced they are bringing back the Camacho Diploma as a limited edition project titled Camacho Diploma Special Selection.
Camacho Diploma was among the brand’s most popular cigars before parent-company Davidoff introduced an overhaul of Camacho in 2013, including a new look, re-blending of most Camacho cigars, and the elimination of certain collections, such as the Diploma cigar. Camacho Diploma Special Selection now returns as an ultra-premium offering.
The blend is not only a Honduran puro, but an Original Corojo puro, using Camacho’s prized Honduran Corojo tobacco throughout. What sets the cigar apart is a rigorous selection process, where only the finest leaves are chosen for the blend. In addition, 90% of the blend utilizes high-priming, ligero leaves, making the cigar the strongest in Camacho’s bold-focused lineup of cigars. The cigars are rolled by Camacho’s top five rolling pairs and then allowed to age for one year, with 32,400 cigars produced for 2017.
Camacho Diploma Special Selection Robusto is packaged in an elaborate display of individually coffined cigars. The coffins feature a slide lid and a triangular shape, with the cigars being positioned vertically, forming an overall triangular, honeycomb-like pattern for the box presentation. The Diploma Special Selection Robusto will only be offered in November and December, 2017. Each year, Camacho will introduce another batch of the cigars, presumably in a new size to distinguish the releases.
