One of the most popular candela releases is making a return. Today, Camacho Cigars announced it is bringing back the Camacho Candela. Like many other candela cigars, the Camacho Candela is returning for a limited production run just in time for the St. Patrick’s Day Holiday.
The Camacho Candela was first released in 2007. However, when Camacho underwent its major brand revamping, gone was the Camacho Candela. The candela wrapper used on the blend is actually a Honduran Criollo leaf that is flash cured over a charcoal fire. The binder and filler utilize Original Corojo grown in Honduras.
The Camacho Candela returns in one size a – 5 x 50 Robusto. It is presented in 25-count boxes. A total of 3,000 boxes (75,000 cigars) have been produced. Pricing is set at $8.00 per cigar.
