Review Notes: Look out, this one can kick your butt. The Criollo wrapper gives this stick a classic flavor, with a bit of a punch. Construction was flawless, and I liked the tissue wrapper with a separate cloth ring. It was a nice touch on an excellent cigar. I donít usually have more than an hour to smoke, so the box I ordered will likely mature for a while in my Humi, but Iíll always look forward to having an exceptional experience when I light one of these. The shorter Pato, and Pampa Criolloís are already a mainstay in my humi, while the Conq, will be a much savored treat.

Review Notes: Rich flavor with a great aroma. Super nice wrapper and presentation. Nice draw, good burn. Hints of lichee and wood. Compliments a good cup of java. Cut tip lower to improve draw.

"Cuban comparisons"

Review Notes: I have smoked several Criollos, in different vitolas. As others have noted, my initial impressions were positive, with some similarities to Habanos. To make a fair comparison, over the weekend I first smoked several Cubans, including a Partagas Serie D No. 1 LE, an Upmann Magnum 46, and a Montecristo No. 2, followed by the Conquistador. To begin, this is a handsome torpedo, not unlike the Monte 2 in construction and appearance. The wrapper is a lovely rosado, which unfortunately is prone to breaking. First draws had a woody flavor, with a distinctive "twang" reminiscent of Habanos. These qualities developed through most of the cigar. This is not a strong smoke, but retains its medium body. Although pleasant, it lacked the full flavors of the Monte and Partagas, and fell flat near the end. The finish was weak. I had no desire to nub it, like I did the delightful Mag 46. This is no Habano, but CAO deserves credit for its effort in creating an excellent cigar with a somewhat "Cuban" flavor profile. Very tangy and satisfying.

Review Notes: I had a couple of these recently and liked them a lot, but in the price range there is a lot of competition. I prefer the smaller cigars in this family.
