Review Notes: I was a bit surprised by this cigar. It wasn't as nice as my previous experiences I'd had with CAO. (Anniversary and Cameroon) It ws almost too mild, almost bland. In all fairness, Since I've only experienced total dissappointment with the Odyssey, I'm willing to buy another and let it age a bit, then try again.

"More like a gourmet meal than a cigar."

Review Notes: It's pretty simple, the Criollos are -different- but not ridiculous. This wrapper is more like frog skin than tobacco but pure luxury and actual taste is all you get out of it. When this smoke is on the tongue, you feel like you've finished off a blackened tilapia dish with a side of remoulade. CAO is always spot on with construction, but the Conquistador is certainly superior to the rest of the line's sizes. I certainly don't think this cigar was test marketed, as it's more of a challenge to a cigar smoker to appreciate versus being spoon fed to you in with a $15 cuban sounding name. Worth every penny.

"Fine Effort...but short of World Class"

Review Notes: This is a good looking, well made figurado. Tasty prelight draw...the wrapper smacks with a slight sweetness. Good overall flavor profile: spicy, grassy and smooth. Even burn...lots of smoke and enjoyable down to the nub. I have tried a number of CAO cigars and never been disappointed. They might not replace your Patron Anniversarys, Don Carlos or benchmark Cubans...but they are a solid smoke.

Review Notes: THESE GUYS JUST PLAIN MAKE A DAMN FINE CIGAR....CANCEL MY FLIGHT TO HAVANA BOYS, I'M GOING TO ESTELI INSTEAD!! THIS IS A VERY NICE MADE TORPEDO, BURNED LIKE A CHAMP AND HADE THAT OLD WORLD TASTE THAT REMINDED ME OF A UPMANN 2 (OR SOME OTHER EARTHY CUBAN). IN THE END, I WAS VERY PLEASED, BUT LACKED THE FLAVOR TO MAKE ME EMPTY A TRAY OF EXTREMES TO MAKE ROOM...WILL TRY AGAIN DOWN THE ROAD.

Review Notes: I last reviewed this cigar on 7/17/05 and this one was as great as the last. I still had some burn problems that needed to be addressed but not as bad as the last one. The great flavor more than compensates for the burn issue.
