At the 2019 IPCPR Trade Show, Camacho Cigars showcased what it has said will be the final installment of the Camacho Diploma Special Selection series, the Camacho Diploma Special Selection Black.
Two years ago, Camacho brought back the original Camacho Diploma blend in a Robusto size. This was followed up in 2017 by the Camacho Diploma in the 11/18 size. Both blends featured high priming original Corojo blends. They were branded as “Special Selection” and were re-packaged in unique triangle-shaped coffins.
Camacho Special Selection Black brings back the Camacho Diploma Maduro blend, which also features a 100% Original Corojo blend, but with a Maduro wrapper. It is being released in one size – a 5 x 50 Robusto. Like the previous two installments of the Camacho Diploma Special Selection, it will be packaged in triangle coffins – with the difference being the coffins are black. The coffins are being packaged in 18-count boxes with 1,800 boxes total being produced. Pricing is set at $25.00 per cigars – making it one of the more premium releases by Camacho since the brand was acquired by Davidoff.
According to Camacho, the Camacho Special Selection Diploma Black cigars are rolled by five of the most experienced pairs at the Camacho factory. The cigars are undergoing a full year of aging following being rolled.
“As the final release in the Diploma Special Selection series, Camacho Diploma Black Robusto delivers an unrivaled experience for even the most veteran palates, offering a never-ending exhibition of unique flavors and layered complexity. Constructed with 100% hand-selected and high-priming Original Corojo tobacco from Honduras. This blend, featuring an Original Corojo Maduro wrapper leaf, now sits at the top of the pyramid for Camacho in terms of taste and strength,” states Scott Kolesaire, Director of Marketing at Davidoff of Geneva USA. “This is one that should not be missed!”
The cigars are scheduled to ship nationwide in October 2019.
