"In my top 5 cigars"

Review Notes: First off, I have to second what Travis said in regards to the last couple inches tasting equally well, if not better, than the middle of the cigar. THere are VERY FEW maduro or oscuro wrapped cigars I've found that don't go bitter near the end.... making them infrequent candidates for nubbing. My beloved Sancho Panza DM Escuderos are a prime example of a wonderful smoke with a horribly bitter finish. The Brazilia however, is delicious all the way to the nub. That said, The Brazilia Samba is one of my Top 5 cigars; I LOVE this cigar. Top notch Wood, Spice, Leather, all in a creamy, med-full bodied chewy smoke. This $6 cigar tastes like a $20 cigar should. A tad bitter when first lit, as many have noted, but goes away with a few draws and opens up into a delicious cigar. Draw on every cigar in a box of 20 has been perfection. I'm sure like any other cigar, there are some duds, which would account for the negative reviews occasionaly found here. I'm not usually a big CAO fan but this is definetely their flagship cigar IMO. Construction and appearance = impeccable and gorgeous. Razor sharp perfect burn almost every time. Buy them and smoke them!

Review Notes: Not as strong or flavorful as the Ipanema but still a solid maduro. I wish it had been bolder.

Review Notes: I just don't think I'm a fan of Brazilian wrappers. I find their flavor to be a bit sharp, thin and one-dimensional. Brazilian wrapped smokes always seem to lack depth. Maybe it's a matter of blenders experimenting with complementary binder/filler combos? They're not there yet. These look dynamite, as other reviewers note, but I find the entire CAO Brazilia line to be terminally blah.

Review Notes: A lot of pepper and spice in this one. Hints of dark chocolate about half way through. Not for the mild cigar lovers who like Fuente smokes. Starts a little bitter but that fades almost immediately. Great draw , no need for corrections in the burn. Dark gray , almost black ash. The longer it burned the better it got. This is not an in between cigar. you will either love it or hate it. I love it.
