Camacho Room 101

    Camacho is known for making full-bodied Honduran cigars. But when Camacho’s president, Christian Eiroa, met silversmith and jewelry designer Matt Booth, of Hollywood, Calif., and saw his line of Room 101 smoker’s accessories, the two men discovered a common bond. "I liked the way he thought," says Eiroa. "It was different, but agreeable. So I listened to his ideas, put in some of my own, and we created this brand."

    The result, the Camacho Room 101 (camachocigars.com, www.room101silver.com; $7–$9 depending on shape), is something neither of the two men had contemplated before: a medium-bodied line of Camacho cigars bearing the Room 101 identity. The cedar-and-curry Honduran/?Nicaraguan Semilla wrapper is grown specifically for these cigars. Each shape is named after an area code for cities favored by Booth: There is the 213 corona (5½ x 44), 305 robusto (5 x 50), 323 toro (6 x 50), 702 figurado (6 x 56), 808 toro grande (6 x 60), and our favorite, the 404 torpedo (6 x 54).
