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.
