Camacho Liberty 2009 – Ben’s version

While readying for another cigar review, breaking news came across my TV.  Osama Bin Laden had been found and killed by US Navy SEALs.  Because of that, I decided to change my review cigar to something more fitting for the occasion. That cigar was the Camacho Liberty 2009.  I have a few 2009s as some friends had sent them to me after the birth of my son in 2009.  I don’t have as much experience with the Liberty as I would like because they haven’t been available to me locally until recently and the price was a little off putting.  I figured, though, this was a good occasion to smoke one.  Chris did this cigar last year for the 4th of July, another fitting occasion, here, so here is my take on the cigar with another year of aging.  So, is this cigar worth the price?  Watch the video and find out.

Editor’s note: J. Shepherd Cigars is running a deal on 2009 Libertys right now.  You 6 Liberty 2009 cigars and a free CAO America for only $65!  That’s one hell of a deal considering these retail for $18.  You can call Jason at 502-741-9125 or email him at  Tell them Nice Tight Ash sent you for the deal.

I was pretty happy with the Camacho Liberty – I was also wondering if it’d be worth the price, but I really dug the complex balance of flavors and the nice draw. Indeed a nice way to celebrate!

Nice review Ben!
I love Camacho. I have a ton of Liberties, but haven’t smoked a one yet… May have to try one out soon.

BTW The Tinderbox is out of the old Liberties.

Nice ending to the review… that SOB.

Ben, thanks so much for the review and the reference to Jason. Got one of the last two deals he had & he was a pleasure to talk to. Holding these till my two buddies (SEALs from other teams than the one who killed that POS) get back. One is rehabbing an injury at Coronado and the other isn’t quite back yet. A perfect stick for a great occasion. Just remember that this fight is going to be generations long. Love your site here! Got it bookmarked to my smart phone. Very “mobile friendly.”


I couldn’t think of a better reason to to smoke those Libertys!
