"Not mild to me"

Review Notes: A nicely crafted torpedo with good color to the wrapper and a nice band. It has a very good draw producing lots of smoke but the burn is inconsistent and needs the occasional relight--a surprise since I usually give CAO's 9's on construction. I guess this particular wrapper doesn't burn well or it needs to be stored at different humidity, not sure. This was a leathery, nutty, and spicy smoke. I don't find these to be mild as others do, and I actually think they're one of CAO's more potent smokes. Humidor time tames them some but they still induce a buzz. A bit expensive but a good cigar.

Review Notes: Milder than I thought. Just not great in the flavor dept. Over priced and over hyped but the presentation was nice with the trays.

Review Notes: Espresso and bittersweet chocolate with a slightly spicy hint here and there. Had some burn troubles with a split head and a really crooked burn.

Review Notes: Wow. I was extraordinarily under whelmed by this one. Had such high hopes. Paid a lot for it; it looked good, smelled good; cool looking ring and solid construction sitting there in the humidor for a few months. I had to re-cut it three times to get any smoke out of the thing. It didnít burn well, kept going out. Tasted ho humóno better than the bundled Scimitars that have aged going on 7 months. In fact I like them better due to lower expectation. Oh well. Iím working through the cigars and time marches on. Hit and miss. This Conquistador couldnít conquer Brigham on the Chicken Hill let alone a continent.

Review Notes: I really enjoyed this cigar. It did suprise me though. It was a lot milder than I expected. It still had that great taste though. The construction was great as all the CAO's I have had. The draw was perfect and the burn was razor sharp. It also held a nice ash. And the flavor was very good too.
