Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Camacho Liberty 2012 Throwback

Welcome to another Vendor sponsored Geek Critique.  Up for review this time is the Camacho Liberty 2012 Throwback.  This critique has been generously sponsored by David of Egars.com.  Special thanks goes out to Dave for providing the sticks and wescat (Kevin) for coordinating this!

The 2019 Liberty is being marketed as a "throwback" to the 2012 Liberty using the same blend as the 2012 Liberty.  All of the Camacho Liberty Series cigars boast a complex blend of their rarest and finest tobaccos, with each year's version providing its own special twist. Handcrafted and extremely limited in supply, only 2,000 boxes of this entry into Camacho's Brotherhood Series are made each year. The Liberty series is sold in boxes of 20, with each cigar packaged in its own individual coffin.

This cigar was enjoyed with water

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 10 Possible

The wrapper was smooth, with one medium sized, prominent vein, and dry to the touch. Cap was well applied and held intact after v cutting. Cannon was well packed, with no soft spots. Aroma off the foot was a sweet hay n' barnyard smell.

Light & Burn: 10 Points of 15 Possible

The burn was uneven for the first half of the cigar, and I had to work to keep it lit. The ash was solid, with a nice grey coloring, and held in 1/2" chunks. The first half was light on the smoke volume, but picked up for the second half. No re-lights were necessary.

Construction: 25 Points of 30 Possible

The cold draw had the right amount of flow and resistance. The wrapper was well applied, and other than one vein, stayed together for the duration of the smoke. The cap was perfect, and held the entire time.

Flavor: 26 Points of 45 Possible

This is a full body, full strength cigar. The initial flavors were cedar, cedar, and more cedar, and some bitterness. There were wisps of cocoa and a touch of cinnamon for a few puffs. This was the entire first half of the cigar. The second half lost most of the bitterness that I found in the beginning, with the cedar ramping down just a notch or two. The last third added a touch of sweetness, along with some hints of cocoa.

Summary

This was the tale of two cigars. The first half was on the bitter side, and was strong on the cedar, neither of which are in my preferred flavor profile. I attribute the bitterness to the vein that was prominent on the front half of the cigar. The second half settled down, lost the bitterness and the cedar dropped down enough for the cigar to be enjoyed. I was a little disappointed in the performance of the first half of this cigar, but liked the second half. I look forward to revisiting this cigar in the future. Thank you Kevin for including me in this GC.
