The Camacho Candela is back and arriving at retailers.

The cigar uses a criollo leaf that was flash-cured over a charcoal fire. The blend was built on the company’s original Corojo blend, with Honduran corojo used in both the binder and filler.

It’s offered in a 5 x 50 robusto vitola priced at $8 per cigar, or $200 for a box of 25 cigars. A total of 3,000 boxes were produced, a run of 75,000 cigars, by the Diadema Cigars de Honduras, S.A. factory.

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 the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
