Episode 357 Crush & Roll West 2013 Tour at Camacho Cigars

Play

BACKGROUND: A year ago in March, I was in Honduras visiting Camacho Cigars and, subsequently, I worked with a team of people who together forged a partnership to bring several lucky people to Honduras and Camacho Cigars this year. Members of the Camacho management team worked together with the planning team of Crush & Roll West, a 2-day cigar and wine event on the Central Coast of California.

Camacho Cigars would provide the transportation to and from all points of travel while in Honduras. They would provide lodging, meals and of course a top-shelf cigar education. On our part, Crush & Roll West would organize and promote the raffle, which would eventually produce two all-expenses paid trips and five more partial expenses paid trips. A year later–just two weeks ago, in fact–I traveled with 7 lucky Crush & Roll West raffle winners and 4 of my associates on the Crush & Roll West planning committee, back to Honduras to complete yet another wondrous experience in the land of cigars. This week’s special Stogie Fresh 5 episode will be devoted to the 2013 Crush & Roll West tour at Camacho Cigars.

FEATURED LIBATION: Nica Libre, made with Flor de Caña 7 Year Gran Reserva
If you remember, I featured the Flor de Caña 18-year rum in my last show 2-weeks ago. This time the rum is the 7-year aged version of which you can get a bottle of this rum in the states for around $20. I paid $22 for a bottle at Bevmo. I will be mixing the rum with Coke to make a Nica Libre.

DOC’S CIGAR POSTSCRIPT: Gurkha Seduction Robusto
This postscript review features the Gurkha Seduction Robusto. I first featured this cigar in Episode 303 back on Sunday, January 15, 2012. These cigars have now been resting in my humidor for 1 year, 4 months and 2 days and I pulled out a couple of samples last week for this postscript review.
