CAMACHO AND CIGAR DOJO COLLABORATE ON IMPERIAL STOUT BARREL-AGED

 

DENVER, CO (TUESDAY, JUNE 20, 2017)Cigar Dojo, the world’s first and largest social cigar app, has partnered with Camacho, the world’s leading brand of bold cigars, to introduce an entirely unique smoking experience for craft fanatics: Cigar Dojo Imperial Stout Barrel-Aged by Camacho.

 

In 2015, fresh off the heels of Camacho’s ground-breaking introduction of the American Barrel-Aged cigar where Camacho mastered the art of barrel-aging tobaccos in used, American whiskey barrels—the brand partnered with Cigar Dojo to highlight the unique characteristics from barrels of a different variety.

 

With Cigar Dojo being based out of one of the top craft beer meccas in the country (Denver), the decision became obvious on how these two brands would collaborate.

 


For the Cigar Dojo, the quest then became centered around the best, most quintessential local brew to represent Cigar Dojo, Colorado craft beer, and the Cigar Dojo community’s demanding palates. This choice materialized in the form of Ten FIDY by Oskar Blues, which is brewed out of Longmont, Colorado and has long been a favorite among craft beer/cigar enthusiasts on the Dojo app. But while the intentions were noble, the approach had been flawed from the start—as Ten FIDY is simply a high gravity imperial stout, lacking the barrel-aged requirement for the project.

 

On a whim, Eric (aka Master Sensei), owner of Cigar Dojo, contacted Oskar Blues in hopes that the brewery had been experimenting with barrel-aging the Ten FIDY recipe. Not only had they been experimenting, but Oskar Blues had recently finished their first mass effort at canning Barrel Aged Ten FIDY for the company’s first “official” release of the beer! Thirty barrels were used to age Ten FIDY, and Camacho/Cigar Dojo managed to secure four such barrels after the beer had been dumped.

 

While multiple barrel types were used to bring the eventual beer to market, the four barrels selected for this project were from Heaven Hill Distilleries, located in Bardstown, Kentucky and the producer of other Dojo favorites—such as Larceny, Elijah Craig, and Parker’s Heritage.

 

 

“Without question the Cigar Dojo/Camacho Imperial Stout Barrel-Aged is the most complex project we have ever been involved with. For our seventh special cigar release, we wanted to stretch the boundaries of what could be done with a small-batch, craft cigar.

The flavor that the tobacco has developed from the barrel that was once used for bourbon and then Ten FIDY Imperial Stout is truly a work of art”.

Eric Guttormson, owner of Cigar Dojo
