On my way home from work Thursday, I decided to stop at one of my local B&Ms to browse. I didn't see anything really of interest to me and went to walk out. The owner basically dragged me back into the walk-in and started showing me stuff...he really wanted to sell something that day!

The guys a real wheeler-dealer and needs to be on the streets of NYC selling watches or something. I can tell he knows nothing of cigars, he just owns a smoke/lotto/bill pay shop...

Anyhow in his attempt to sell, sell, sell, he pulls out a little coffin box from a shelf that's hidden in plain sight. He pulled out the tissue wrapped cigar, unwraps the tissue, and it's a camacho liberty. There were more coffins on the shelf too. He says to me "Buy 3, I give you one free". Ummm, I know nothing of the liberty series, but the prices on the coffins looked reasonable, so I grabbed a few boxes.

Here's what I go (paid under $60 for all 4):
1x Camacho Liberty 11/18
1x Camacho Liberty 60/40 Amendment XII
1x Camacho Liberty 2006
1x CAO Odyssey

I've done a search of the threads here and google, and haven't found much about these...the 2009, yeah, but not these. Can anyone give me some information?

Odysseys are quite rare and a great grab. I'm not sure about the others except for the 2006. As far I as I knew there are just one cigar per vintage but maybe I'm wrong. Any dates on those other two?

Any time you can grab a Liberty from previous years is a good day in my book!

Camacho's website shows the 2007 as an 11/18 with a blue band. Maybe they are all 11/18s. We need a collector to show us some Liberty prons of all the years.

They all have a bit of pre-embargo tobacco in them. Camacho also has another cigar, the 1962PE that is basically the same blend as the liberty that is quite good.

those are the ones I got! Supposedly pre-embargo tobacco too???
They claim the Libertys use a portion of a the tobacco from the 5 pre-embargo bails they found in the corner of an old warehouse they bought in Ohio in 1995. How much they used is uncertain.

those 2004 were released independently of each other and i believe a different blend. the amendment XII was released in the fall for the election and the 11/18 in the summer as usual.

This is my first post on here. Had to finally register once I saw this thread. I have a couple of the 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009. Would love to find a couple 2006, as well as 2004 if I can. Would you be willing to share the name of the shop? I tried to send you a PM, but nothing is showing in my "Sent" folder, so I don't know if it went through.

Thanks,
kockroach

Honestly, I wasn't that impressed. Not that it was bad, in fact it was quite good, but with a price tag of $15, I won't grab more than a few. I like the PE & Diploma's, though they are priced a bit high too. I really like the Room 101 best.

The 2009 is supposed to be the best of the Liberty series to date from what I hear. Does anyone have these or tried them?
I have some, haven't tried one yet--I'll post it up this summer when I celebrate Independence week with this baby!

I'm trying to collect a Liberty from every year. I have the long '04 through '09, but need something from '02, as well as '03 and the first '04 I believe. It's kinda fun to have them all.

Man, all those Liberty pictures are SWEET! Thanks a lot for that, Max!
