Last year, Camacho Cigars re-introduced the original blend of the Camacho Diploma as an annual limited release known as the Camacho Diploma Special Selection. The 2017 release featured a 5 x 54 Robusto format. This year, Camacho is once again releasing the original blend of the Camacho Diploma, but this time in the brand’s signature 11/18 format.
The blend of the Camacho Diploma Special Selection Robusto is 100% Original Corojo from Honduras and features high priming tobaccos. The 11/18 is a unique format introduced by previous Camacho owner, Christian Eiroa. The size is a cross between a Toro and a Figurado measuring 6 x 48/54/48. The 11/18 got its name from the birthday of Eiroa’s mother (November 18th).
Like the 2017 edition, the Camacho Diploma Special Selection 11/18 will be packaged in triangle-shaped coffins. The 2017 edition saw the coffins packaged in a hexagon-shaped box. Eighteen of the 11/18 coffins will be packaged in a trapezoid-shaped box. A total of 1,500 boxes (or 27,000 cigars) will be released. Pricing is set at $22.50 per cigar.
When the big revamping of the Camacho brand occurred in 2013, the Camacho Diploma was a line that was given a complete overhaul and an all-new multi-national blend. Less than two years later, the new version of the Camacho was discontinued.
