New Camacho Questions

edelrionycedelrionyc Posts: 361 ✭✭✭
Are all Camacho blends going through a rebranding only or are they changing the blend as well..... Are the triple maduros the same blend now as it was before the new labels? What about the corojo? I personally like the older bands better than the new ones.

    they say that the triple maduro wasn't changed, but people who have smoked them have said that they are not the same.

    Researched and came up with this. Camacho redesigned and reblended their line.... All cigars are redesigned and all but two were reblended... The triple maduro and diploma are the same. They originally had 11 lines and now only have 6... I really liked the original corojo blend.... Too bad i smoked my last one a few days ago and won't be able to enjoy them again....

    i have yet to smoke the reblends. i have a few and ill review soon if i can. i dont have the backout and since that is the first "new" blend i would like to try it.

    the old diploma was one of my favorite aged cigars and if it is different i may have to disown them.

    i would really hate for that to happen after the friendship camacho and i have had for so long.

    I have had the new connie and to me they lost some of the flavor that I loved in the original.

    From my knowledge technically the triple maddy is the only non reblend...for me the new line is lacking something. I did enjoy the black out and the diploma though. A little over a year ago I thing maybe less I found out they were changing and reblending plus dropping some of my favorite lines so I went on a small camacho spree.

    I'm disappointed by the whole thing. I am a huge Camacho fan, but the new labels look like something a teen trying to look cool would smoke. Just one man's opinion....

    From what I understand Christian took the recipes with him when he left the company and Davidoff bought Camacho in 2008. This caused them to have to create new blends.

    I don't have a strong opinion on the packaging one way or another, but a number of people I work with in their 50s and 60s said the new packaging made them decide to try Camacho for the first time... and one can be quoted as saying about the new Liberty "Coolest damned thing I have ever seen".

    they are still rolled in Christians factory in fact he still gets royalties from davidoff for making them. I think it was up too camacho since the taxes on the blends are very expensive and they wanted to downsize the line. But yeah I think davidoff just wanted too shy away from what the original camacho line was
