Camacho has long been known as an authority in the cigar world, supplying cigar aficionados with stogies that people genuinely fawn over. The Coyolar Puro is one that doesn’t break away from their tradition of excellence, as it is a quality cigar that is both rich in flavor and cost-efficient. This Honduran puro is one that makes a very strong impression at first glance, as the stick possesses a very pleasing lightly roasted coffee bean coloration. The wrapper itself is constructed pretty well. While it does have a few medium veins, there aren’t many other defects on the wrapper, and that’s especially surprising considering the price.
At first draw, it becomes apparent that this is a stick that’s full of flavor. While it certainly isn’t overwhelming, the blend definitely makes a statement. One would expect an especially flavorful cigar to be very strong, and while it isn’t a light stick, it’s surprisingly smooth. The initial draws are a bit reminiscent of cinnamon or brown sugar, quickly progressing from sweet to almost a peppercorn, and finally to something that nestles in between. The Camacho Coyolar is definitely rich in the body with these unique tastes, but it is one that stops short of being a full cigar, as it doesn’t possess those characteristics that are normally seen with cigars with this much flavor.
While this cigar definitely deserves praise — it isn’t perfect. It may not be the case for every Coyolar, it’s known for not being the most structurally sound of cigars, and it may need a couple of touch-ups while smoking. Also, the taste deteriorates as one makes their way down toward the head. It can be especially frustrating because the stogie starts off so well. All in all, this puro is a solid choice. At the current price, it may be hard to find something more satisfying.
