Camacho Cigars will be launching a new core line in their portfolio. The Camacho Ecuador is set to be released this month, and derives its name from the Habano Ecuador wrapper that is being used. This cigar will become the seventh core line following the rebranding that took place last June.
In a press release, Camacho describes a little about the background for this wrapper, “The Ecuador Habano leaf is one of the most storied tobaccos in our arsenal, a wrapper unique unto itself in color, texture and aroma. Grown in the rugged and nitrogen rich soils beneath the towering Andes Mountains, a majestic region where tobacco growing first took hold thousands of years ago. Ecuador Habano is one of the most versatile wrapper leaves in existence, opening the possibilities for our master blenders to experiment and drive the boundaries of flavor to new heights.
The press release also describes the flavor profile as having a pepper blast along with hints of floral and citrus.
At a glance, here is a look at the Camacho Ecuador:
