FrontRunners: Select Smoke

CAMACHO COYOLAR PURO
Every cigar maker would claim that it built its brand on the strength of its cigars, but for Camacho, the statement holds a more literal meaning: The heavy-bodied cigars for which the producer is known rank among the world’s stoutest smokes. For its new Camacho Coyolar Puro, the manufacturer selected especially robust criollo and corojo tobaccos from the Coyolar Farm (a first-time source for Camacho cigars) in the Jamastran Valley outside of Danlí, Honduras. The blend is among the heaviest we have sampled, but its smooth, chocolaty flavor makes it an ideal digestif. For most smokers, the 4¼ x 50 perfecto will provide the optimum dose of corojo power.
