The Camacho Liberty 2005 is back.
Later this month, Davidoff of Geneva USA will begin shipping the Camacho Liberty 2005 Throwback will begin shipping to retailers. Like the original Liberty 2005, it uses a Honduran maduro wrapper over a Honduran corojo binder and Honduran corojo fillers. It keeps the brand’s iconic 11/18 figurado shape—6 x 48/54/48—the same as the original release.
The Liberty Series was introduced in 2002 and has become an annual release for the company, released around the July 4th holiday each year.
“The building of each Liberty cigar begins over a year before the tobacco makes its way to the rolling table, the cigars are then constructed and left to rest for a minimum of six months, scheduled to emerge just in time to celebrate the 4th of July holiday,” said Scott Kolesaire, director of marketing at Davidoff of Geneva USA, in a press release. “This year’s release, a throwback of the Liberty 2005 blend, lets us proudly celebrate America’s independence with a cigar perfectly crafted for such an honor.”
Pricing is set at $22 per cigar and it is limited to 1,500 boxes of 20 cigars for the U.S. market. It will begin shipping in the U.S. on June 11 and ship to Europe in the fall.
Update (June 27, 2018) — The original version of this story incorrectly identified the Camacho Liberty 2005 as being released in more than one vitola, that is incorrect.
