"Not impressed"

Review Notes: This is one of those cigars that seem like everyone loves but I find lacking. It nicely constructed, draws well with a nice presentation but the flavor, to me, is very one dimensional. Theres a little pepper towards the middle but otherwise it's just a flat tobacco taste. I've found the Felipe Dominica which is similar, to have more complexity and a better price to boot. Perhaps with more age I will grow to enjoy the last 8 I have. Or not.

Review Notes: The CAO Black is yet another reminder that most cigars are better after a nap. When I first got these I thought they were boring. After a few months in the humidor I am kicking myself for not stocking up on them. On the mild side of medium, flavors are all over the place from spice to creamy/buttery and back again.

"A nice smoke"

Review Notes: Smoked this after three months in the humidor. Very nice light cigar. Flavor remained consistent throughout the smoke, but noted an underlying flavor of baby powder. Not unpleasant, just unexpected. I also noted natural vanilla flavors and a clean cedar note. All in all, for a light cigar, an exceptional smoke; I would go out of my way to get one of these again.

Review Notes: Unique spicy aroma, but the flavor just doesn't deliver. Sat it down about halfway through, came back into the room 5 min later and thought "Wow, if only it tasted as good as it smells." Unfortunately, they don't. Kind of weak.

"Not bad"

Review Notes: Aged 2 years. A smooth, light wrapper. A cedar sleeve encases this medium-mild to medium bodied cigar that looks larger than it's advertised 6x50. It was soft to the touch and had an underwhelming bouquet, so I wasn't really expecting much. Flavor started out coconut.vanilla.earth.wood, quite pleasing with a little bite. The middle turned into a vanilla.earth.cedar flavor which would have been nice if it weren't for the light amount of high frequency taste I hate. Purging eradicated this unwanted flavor, but took a bit of the bite away. The little kick returned on the last third and the flavor was coconut.earth.wood. Burn was perfect and draw was fine. All in all, much better than I expected.
