Beer, bourbon, and cigars. These are a few of my favorite things.
If you’re into craft beer, you might have heard of the Oskar Blues Brewery in Colorado. I know I have, and their Ten Fidy Stout is in my regular rotation. So of course, when I heard they were releasing a special edition beer aged in bourbon barrels, I was excited, to say the least. But when I heard that Camacho, one of my personal favorite brands, was making a cigar aged in the spent bourbon barrels after Oskar Blues used to them for one of my favorite beers? I couldn’t contain myself. And I couldn’t wait to share it with the world.
The blend starts with Camacho’s famous original Corojo tobacco, aged patiently in the beer-soaked bourbon barrels for a minimum of 6 months. The filler is then rounded out by Brazilian and Dominican tobacco, secured with a Honduran Corojo binder, and finished with a beautifully oily and rich Mexican San Andres wrapper, resulting in a veritable feast for the senses. This cigar comes in just one size, a 6”x 50 toro, and is brimming with notes of the malty beer, rich caramel, oak, leather, and spice, creating a flavor profile the likes of which you haven’t seen before and may not see ever again. My favorite things in the world are beer, bourbon, and cigars, so if you’re anything like me, you’ll be jumping on these before they’re gone!
