Cigar News: Press Release: First Look: Camacho Blackout Limited Edition 2013

The New Camacho BLACKOUT Limited Edition 2013 utilizes tobaccos from 4-different years.

Wrapper grown in 2006, Binder from 2009, Fillers from 2003, 2008, 2009.

The rolled cigars where then aged together another 2-years, when the normal marrying process is

normally just a few months.

Wrapper, which was picked from the top 2/3’s of the plant, was fermented differently than most

tobaccos. A process known as “press-fermentation” was used by placing additional weight

on the top of the “pilones” (piles where the tobacco ferments), which intensifies the internal

temperatures. The tobacco is worked hard, but carefully, then allowed a longer than usual resting

period once packed in bales for aging.

Leaves from the top 2/3’s of the plant get additional sun ripening, which boosts the level of

sweetness with additional sugars being creating during the process of photosynthesis. The heavy

oil noticed on this wrapper leaf is as a result of the plants natural defenses, the plant tries to

protect itself by creating more oils to fend off the sun’s glare.
