The 2014 edition of Camacho’s annual summer release, the Liberty Series, has begun arriving at retail after the company announced on July 1 that the single-vitola release would soon be shipping. A number of retailers have been posting about the cigar’s arrival this week:

This year’s release uses the 11/18 perfecto vitola (6 x 48/54/48) and what the company calls a complex blend of rare tobaccos that span three countries and four vintages. The Ecuadorian habano wrapper was grown in 2005, while the Corojo binder comes from 2006. The filler comes from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.

Production is being limited to 40,000 cigars, split up among 2,000 boxes of 20 cigars that are individually packed in wood coffins. MSRP is set at $17 per cigar before taxes. The cigars are being made in Honduras at Agroindustrias Laepe, S.A.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
