Camacho Ecuador Robusto


Camacho Ecuador Robusto
I've eagerly awaited the chance to smoke and review this new Camacho Ecuador Robusto. MikesCigars.com carries the Ecuador by the box, as five packs or as a single for $6.80.

Construction of this robusto is superb. It's packed well full length, it has a triple cap plus a seamless and nearly vein free, oily, Colorado colored wrapper. From the foot there are notes of molasses and the cold draw reminds me of spicy black tea.

The first few mouthfuls of medium bodied smoke taste like black tea with a bit of sugar added and the oily gloss grows on the wrapper with every puff. As the burn progresses there are notes of brown sugar, fermented tobacco, toast, sweet cream, oak, leather, caramel and a hint of coffee with cream at the nub.

Overall this new Ecuador is a winner. It has great flavors, a fifty-five minute burn time, a super oily wrapper, and top of the line construction. The burn was pretty jagged in the first half, but it burnt through it without a touch up. This cigar definitely needs to be on your "to smoke" list.
