Continuing in the footsteps of 2017’s return of the Camacho Diploma, the company has now announced another revival of a retro Camacho brand with Camacho Coyolar.
As with Camacho’s core-line Corojo cigar, the Coyolar is built entirely from Honduran tobaccos. However, the Coyolar marks a significant departure for the company, using solely Criollo tobaccos from a small, single vintage farm near the border of Honduras/Nicaragua. This differs from nearly every blend in Camacho’s portfolio, which have historically showcased Camacho’s Original Corojo tobacco in at least one portion of the blend.
Camacho Coyolar was first released in 2005, before the company was acquired by Oettinger Davidoff in 2008. The cigars were originally named for the farm where the tobaccos were grown, but the exact farm has not been specified for the updated release. However, the company has stated “the blend and formats remain the same.”
The original Coyolar cigars were phased out in 2013 as part of a major branding overhaul, where Camacho re-blended and consolidated nearly their entire lineup down to a select few cigars. The updated Coyolar introduces the cigars in the same five sizes, including a small and shapely 4½” x 50 Perfecto #1. According to Camacho, the only true change to the cigars is the look, which has been redesigned to fit within the modern/bold look of the brand. This includes a primarily black color scheme, with background details made to resemble the mountainous regions of Honduras and Nicaragua.
As Coyolar was often considered one of, if not, the strongest cigar in the company’s portfolio, the modern iteration is described as “4/5 in intensity” and “a true powerhouse cigar that provides blasts of leather, pepper, rich coffee and oak.” The cigars are expected to ship later this week and should become available to consumers by early next week.
