Didn’t I warn you IPCPR news mode was in full swing? Today, news on a staple of the IPCPR show, the Camacho Liberty. The popular limited edition has been released every year since 2002 and has gained notoriety for the 11/18 Perfecto format it uses. (To be clear, not every release has been the 11/18, the original release was in fact three different vitolas.)

Blend is described as “medium to full.” It’s almost all Honduran tobaccos with just a bit of Dominican in the filler. For those a bit unfamiliar with the Liberty format, it’s a Perfecto that is 54 RG at its largest and 48 RG at both the head and foot, the thinnest portions of the cigar. The cigars are packed in coffins and the box is normally one of the better looking ones of the year, to say the least.
