The Sencillo series is a creation produced by Christian Eiroa of Camacho Cigars on the behalf of Keith K. Park CEO of Prometheus, from which also has the God of Fire and Angelenos series too. The Short Churchill weighs in at 6.25 x 48 with a milk chocolate brown Habano seed Jamastran wrapper and binder, and the filler too is composed of that very same Jamastran leaf as well as Honduran Piloto Cubano. This particular stick has an msrp of 8.50$, and I received it from a good friend.


The Jamastran wrapper smells sweetly of espresso, manure, and oak. With a 9mm punch to the head, the draw is completely effortless and has a hint of curry; and the wrapper tastes of dark chocolate, ground espresso beans, and leather. The toasted foot smells prominently of 82% cacao, chili pepper, espresso, and manure.


Off of the initial draw this Sencillo tastes of Cuban coffee, hickory, mesquite, and white pepper. This potent cigar is quite reminiscent of the Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970, in its unyielding boldness.

The ash puzzles me, as it is primarily chalk white in color, though the smoke is cloud white and off the nose smells of bell peppers and coffee; the ash is also flaky in appearance.

There’s an obvious canoe on the foot, although it appears to be leveling out as I write this review. An occasional hint of butter and milk chocolate pops up on every other puff.

Due to the primary usage of the Jamastran tobacco, there’s not going to be much of any dimensionality flavor wise to these cigars even with the Piloto Cubano, this occurrence is common with double and triple blends; but don’t get me wrong this isn’t a bad full body and full strength cigar, it is actually quite good, but just lacks the dynamics of a truly unique and flavorful cigar.

The Sencillo is a very peppery cigar throughout, and billows with a sweet and spicy smoke, and it burns rather slowly, I account this factor due to the inherent oiliness of Honduran tobaccos.

At the last two and three quarter inches the ash finally incorporates a salt and pepper complexion. The consistency of pepper like spices are un-abating on the tongue and the Sencillo also gives off a peppery aftertaste with each draw.

Overall it’s an okay cigar, unless you enjoy peppery cigars, this probably isn’t for the everyday cigar smoker. Though the msrp on these are a third of that of the God of Fire front marks which have an average msrp of 21.50$ per stick.

Towards the final inch and a half the cigar does mellow out, with hints of black pepper, cedar, cocoa, coriander, earth, leather, and mocha; and the burn most certainly levels out, and the smoke off of the nose smells of chocolate truffles. Like I said it’s an okay cigar, not necessarily the best offering from Christian Eiroa and Camacho Cigars, but it’s not the worst either e.g. El Legendario.
