I'm currently on a Cameroon kick, and my favorites are Hemmingways (usually short stories), AF Don Carlos and Oliva Serie G. The Partagas NC's are good as well.

QFT. :tu

Don carlos is a close second. They are the two best cammies out there IMO. :ss

10-22-2008, 11:51 AM
Gotta go with a cheapie here. Another vote for the oliva g :ss

10-22-2008, 12:01 PM
Hemingways, plain and simple.

Also the regular line from La Aurora, a great everyday smoke for $2-3. And, of course, their Preferidos Cameroons.

10-22-2008, 12:03 PM
I have not tried most of thoes posted above so my opinion is based on a small sample, but I like the CAO Cameroon l'anniversarie.

10-22-2008, 12:33 PM
I posted a similar quesiton on another board about this my favorite wrapper:) The list is growing... but here goes:

CAO Anniversary (spiciest and sweetest cammie IMHO).
Perdomo La Tradicion Cameroon (sp?) (this is what I give people when I want them to know whata cammie is about)
La Aurora 1495 Corona (sells itself)
La Aurora Preferido (again, sells itself but very expensive)
Montecristo Afrique (this is actually a cheap smoke from JR and is awesome)
Torano 1916 (super smooth, spicy, strong finish, this is a great after dinner cammie)
Gurkha Royal Brigage Perfecto (yes, give it 6 months in a humi, these are goood).
Oliva G (I like the special G for a quicky)
Vegas de Fonseca (the cheapest of all cammies, not as spicy as the rest, but probably the best yardgar cammie out there by far

Hemingways, plain and simple.

Also the regular line from La Aurora, a great everyday smoke for $2-3. And, of course, their Preferidos Cameroons.

Those are all good and I enjoy them, but I think I prefer the Partagas line more than AF's. A nice Partagas Decadas if I could afford them would my favorite, but since those are a luxury item for me, I keep Partagas Naturales around as the old standby, a few in maduro for a change of pace also.

Taboo Cameroon is awesome...Also the G by Oliva

LFD Cabinet Camerron, LFD DL Cameroon Lanceros
Also, Torano 1916 and H Up Vintage Cameroon.

10-22-2008, 12:44 PM
None of the above!!!

But thanks for asking!!!:D

Seriously, cameroons rake the back of my throat and make the roof of my mouth tingle and itch! I want to like them but I can't!

10-22-2008, 01:00 PM
Fuente Hemingways:ss

10-22-2008, 01:14 PM
Don Carlos and Oliva G's:ss

10-22-2008, 01:15 PM
Hemingways of course, and the good ole 858

but the Gurkha Nepalese Warrior. They say it's a cammie wrapper, but I suspect it's actually thinly sliced leather. Either way, it's delicious :ss

10-22-2008, 01:15 PM
I always try to find Cameroon cigars. While Georges Reserve (Corona and Lonsdales), Perdomo Cameroon and Hemingway are all favourites. I still have to hunt for more and will be trying some of the ones listed here.

10-22-2008, 01:52 PM
Nepalese Warrior is the only Gurkha I enjoy on a regular basis.

CAO Aniversary is probably my fav

Need to try more AF stuff.

10-22-2008, 02:03 PM
Taboo Cameroon, Hemingway, Don Carlos

10-22-2008, 02:05 PM
Also, Torano 1916 and H Up Vintage Cameroon.

second would be the Taboo Cameroon.

10-22-2008, 02:28 PM
AF Don Carlos #2... Now I must have one tonight

10-22-2008, 02:29 PM
Ummm, Oliva G. :)

10-22-2008, 02:36 PM

I'm not a big Cameroon fan, they all rank about the same with me.

10-22-2008, 04:13 PM
hemi sigs and partagas. oldies but goodies.

10-22-2008, 04:26 PM
Oliva G
H.Upmann Cammie

10-22-2008, 04:37 PM
La Unica Cameroon #1 Torpedo. MMMMMMM love em. Perdomo Reserve Cameroon are nice as well. I find the Fuente Hemingway line to have a charred aftertaste.

10-22-2008, 06:31 PM
Also, Torano 1916 and H Up Vintage Cameroon.

These are my 2 favorites.

I have a 1916 that has been resting a while and I may have to spark him up tomorrow.

10-22-2008, 11:48 PM
I'm just starting to appreciate Cameroon, but I would say Cohiba Red Dot coronas, Partagas, and Fuente 858.

10-23-2008, 10:06 AM
#1 AF Hemingway
#2 Oliva G

Although based on this thread, I have to try the CT 1916 & Taboo Cameroon. Might rearrange my order then :dance:

10-23-2008, 10:32 AM
Hands Down the Gurkha Dragonfire

10-23-2008, 10:51 AM
CAO L' Anniversaria Belioso

It was one of my very first cigars over 5 bucks and i have always loved them since.

10-23-2008, 11:21 AM
Here are a few I like:

Partagas 150
A. Fuente Hemingway
La Aurora Preferidos
Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur
Camacho Select
Oliva Serie G

10-23-2008, 10:14 PM
Torano 1916
H Upmann Cam

10-23-2008, 11:06 PM
In no particular order:
Partagas NC
A.Fuente Hemmingway
Perdomo Reserve Cameroon
La Aurora 1495 Cameroon
Gurkha Regent Nepalese Warrior
Perdomo2 (squared) Cameroon
La Vieja Habana Cameroon

10-23-2008, 11:22 PM
I posted a similar quesiton on another board about this my favorite wrapper:) The list is growing... but here goes:

La Aurora 1495 Corona (sells itself)

A good list, but the standard La Aurora 1495 is an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. A tasty cigar :tu They also offer a sampler of the 1495 that does have 4 other types of wrappers -- one which is cameroon.

10-23-2008, 11:27 PM
AF Hemingway and Don Carlos, and the AF 858 -- the only AF green label that I really enjoy :D

10-25-2008, 03:38 PM
Seriously, cameroons rake the back of my throat and make the roof of my mouth tingle and itch! I want to like them but I can't!

I thought I was the only one who thought cameroons left a weird sensation in my mouth. I don't know if I'd describe it the same was as that but something strange goes on. Anyone out there have a good way of describing the flavor profile of cameroon? All I can ever think of is a floural type of spice or something of that nature.

My favorite cammie is a Hemingway Classic or Signature . Didn't care for Oliva G at all . I have some new cammies to try but I always end up going back to the hemingways . :salute:

10-27-2008, 07:36 PM
Perdomo Reserve.:ss

10-27-2008, 07:42 PM
All this Cameroon talk made me look for one today. Found a Don Tomas Cameroon Collection Rothschild. It was good enough for me to get a 2nd one for the road. :)

10-28-2008, 07:43 AM
Cuesta Rey Stanford Reserve

10-28-2008, 11:56 AM
My current faves:

AF Hemi
Torano 1916
H. Up Vintage Cam
Oliva G

Last night I had an Alec Bradley Trilogy Cameroon Baron. Picked up a 5'er cheap at the devil site. Not a bad everyday cammie: well constructed and a nice Cameroon twang.


10-28-2008, 12:35 PM
Yes on the AF Hemingways, add:

Maria Guerrero

10-28-2008, 12:41 PM
Had an AF Don Carlos #4 last night and it was excellent. Got to be one of my favorite cammies.

10-28-2008, 01:45 PM
Leon Jimenes Serie 300 by La Aurora

This is a WAY underrated stick. Very tasty. Better than any Hemingway i've had IMO.

10-29-2008, 10:50 PM
I had to go with the La Aurora Preferido. It is pricey, but it is one of the best Cameroons I have had hands down.

10-30-2008, 07:59 PM
Yes on the AF Hemingways, add:

Maria Guerrero

Forgot about those....big thumbs up. :ss

10-30-2008, 08:44 PM
I had my first CAO Cx2 last night. Oh wow! :) Nice.

11-02-2008, 01:17 AM
One of the most underrated cigars especially for it's balances of flavors...

La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinets
(esp. the Lonsdale for wrapper ratio)

no bands, sold in 50 cabs, good price point = under the radar

also, hemingways
(I don't know why I can't get into Don Carlos')

The Saint
11-02-2008, 10:00 AM
I've always liked Cuban Crafters Cammy.

11-03-2008, 10:36 PM
Of all time the camacho 2006 liberty, but my favorite thats fairly easy to find would be the cuesta rey stanfords churchill.

11-04-2008, 05:25 AM
Mine would have to be Don Carlos #3 and LFD Cameroon Cabinets

11-04-2008, 05:43 AM
Don Carlos #2

11-05-2008, 08:57 PM
LFD cabinet cameroon:ss

Taboo Cigars
11-05-2008, 10:25 PM
I am not a Cameroon fan, but any Fuente Don Carlos is a great smoke. I like them better than the Hemingway or Opus.:ss
