I have smoked many different cigars. No matter how "rave" the ratings, none pleased my palate for long. This cigar was the first that I actually enjoyed all the way. It had some kick and flavors. Didn't notice any spice, just a well rounded cigar. Didn't taste muddy or flat like air or cardboard. A pleasant and fulfilling smoke. The initial flavor made me say, wow this is unique in a good way!
This is a great short fat smoke Has a nice oily sheen to it Flavor wise there was a rich maduro flavor Also there was nutty, woodsy, pepper and bitter chocolate This is a stable smoke in my humidor If you see this smoke buy it highly recommend
I did not want this smoke to end. Delicious, mildly spicy, even burn with a great ash. For the price and quality I'd say SCORE!!!
To me, this is the best and most intriguing of the CAO Brazilian line. It ranks as one of the best ciagrs in the lower-middle price range gor my buck- and will round out any humidor nicely.
