Welcome to our 4th installment of what we lovingly call our Back and Future series. This is a series where we find cigars from over 5 years ago, in this case, 8 years aged and compare them with their current-day counterparts. This installment is extremely rare and deserves to be experienced by cigar heads who are truly curious about how cigars age and what it does to the flavors of a cigar. In this case, we have a real treat. In 2012 The Eiroa family sold their beloved Camacho factory to Oettinger Davidoff. The Eiroas have one of the most sought-after Corojo Cuban seed tobacco known to man. Let me explain why it is so special. For starters, this is the original Cuban Corojo seed. Cuba saw waves of blue mold that destroyed their Corojo and lead them to hybridize their Corojo Seed to what it is today. The Eiroas have the original. 2. The Eiroa work with Bayer Crop Science. They know everything from weather patterns to soil PH levels as well as what to give the plants and when. One may argue the Erioas have the best tobacco in the world. After the sale of Camacho in 2012 the family had to wait it out a few years for a non-compete to expire.
So we have a 2012 Corojo Camacho Toro
