The Camacho brand of cigars first appeared in the early sixties when Simon Camacho fled newly communist Cuba and set up shop in Miami, Florida. The brand quickly acquired worldwide notoriety with cigar connoisseur Winston Churchill being among the ranks of Camacho smokers. After Simon Camacho passed away in the 1990s, the company was taken over by another group of Cuban exiles, The Eiroa family. Production was moved to the Jamastran valley region of Honduras, an area that is renowned for producing consistently rich and aromatic Cuban seed varieties. Camacho cigars are famous for their bold, robust flavor.
