Default Camacho Candela.....

First off, this puppy is GREEN! I don't mean green as in not properly aged but a freakin green wrapper! So I cut it with my mighty fine desktop catseye and sucked some air through it....I swear I taste pistacio, really. I commence to light it and I found a pretty different and unique smoke...somewhere between a mild and medium deal...grassy, slight nutty, and very lite spice on the front end leaving a natural organic feel in the mouth. A different treat and a new twist...they are pretty limited from what I understand so if you can't get your hands on one I may be able to help a brother out.

Ahhh, Candelas, the long lost wrapper. Used to be a very popular wrapper for cigars here in the US. I think Fuente still makes one as well!

Thanks for the review!

They are one of the few Camachos I will never smoke again. And you are correct on the grassy flavor. Yuk.

A couple weeks ago I found a CI catalog from 2003 and there were many more candelas and connecticuts than you find in today's catalog.

That is so true. That is what my granfather use to smoke and why I am not so inclinded to smoke them. His had a sickly aroma to them. Now my uncle smoked some nice smelling cigars. He died when I was like seven but I swear they must have been bolivar and partagas.

BTW I tried the AF version and though I was not disgusted I was just left unimpressed, yet willing try try again if I hear of a good one that comes out...maybe Tatuaje should market one LOL
