Cigar Review: Camacho Ecuador Robusto

Initial Thoughts

Some cigars are new and fresh; some are timeless classics. I'm not sure where the Camacho Ecuador Robusto falls on that spectrum, but I've had it for almost three years, and it's just begging to be smoked.

The Camacho Ecuador Robusto I reviewed was a good-looking cigar with a couple of oddities.

There was a blemish at the foot, but that could be due to some questionable handling while it's been in my possession. The other strange thing was the thick veins at the smoking end. Other than that, the wrapper was nice and oily.

After a guillotine cut, the Camacho Ecuador Robusto had a very loose draw with hints of spice and something that was… green.

Will this nearly-three-year-old Camacho Ecuador Robusto be worth almost $9? Let's smoke it and find out.

Final Thoughts

Even though those massive stems in the wrapper leaf caused an uneven burn in the final third, overall, the Camacho Ecuador Robusto had pretty decent construction.

My main complaint with this blend was the flavors. Unfortunately, even after 3 years, this cigar still had a slight chemical taste to it.

Overall, this cigar was just okay. It wasn't great, but it could've been worse. The Camacho Ecuador Robusto earns a CigarScore 3.
