    if you are talking really old Camacho,look for the Corojo from 2002. there should be dates stamped on the box .
    the Esteli with the crimson stripe from 2004-5 may be worth trying.
    there was a funny shaped box of Diploma, and a Trapezoid sampler box you may find.
    Absolutely try to get the Connecticut 11-18 from 09-10 ? in the pastel orange box,and of course the Trip Maduro.

    This. I still think about those 11-18s often.

    these were released right after Davidoff bought in ,and they used the excellent Connecticut wrappers that Davidoff provided.
    outstanding cigars, several steps above anything I have had since then.
    The 11-18 was like a toro size with a fat middle, I think it was unique to Camacho.
    dang fine smoke.:cigar::cigar::cigar::cigar::cigar:(y)(y)(y)

    They appeared again under the CLE brand (a quick google tells me they're still around). But, seeing as that is led by the former Camacho president, I'd say it is indeed unique to Camacho.

    Camacho Diploma was an amazing cigar. Very cool trapezoid box and aged extremely well.

    11-18 trip maduros are smoking fine atm!
    1962 corojo diplomas were good but IMO the perfecto and 10th anni 11-18 were better. Their old liberty coffins were nice too! I havnt revisited the brand since about 09 10. They put the post it note sized gawdy bands on and that was just a red flag for me.

    Did the Corojo (churchill) original come also in a tube, is the Camacho Corojo Scorpion also from 2002? Locked in an orignal triple maduro robusto.

    O I forgot those scorpions were a thing. Wonder if they ever aged well.

    If you get a chance, try the new Aladino lines (especially the Maduro) from JRE Tobacco. Julio Eiroa, father of Christian Eiroa (CLE) went back to making the old school Camacho blends. The Eiroas created the original Camacho brand.
