Camacho released a pair of photos Tuesday afternoon of a new cigar called the Ditka Throwback via their social media channels, including their Facebook page and Instagram account.

The cigars are named for football icon Mike Ditka, who entered into a partnership with Camacho in July 2012. He appeared at Camacho’s booth at the IPCPR convention and trade show in 2012, though his cigars were not released until December 2012. Currently, there are three offerings in the line, the Player, the Coach and the Hall of Famer.

Each is available in four sizes, Robusto, Toro, Torpedo and 6×60, and range from medium bodied to full bodied, which prices ranging from $8 – $10.50 per cigar.

Little is known about the new cigar, as e-mails to Camacho were not immediately returned. The cigar appears to be a 6 x 50 Toro that comes in an individual coffin, with approximately 10 coffins to a box. The packaging is similar to Camacho’s annual Liberty cigar.

Ditka was the featured speaker at last year’s Davidoff Golden Bands Awards dinner, and was recently announced as the keynote speaker for the opening breakfast of the 2013 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show.

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.
