Review Notes: Not as flavorful as prior samples but very well made, volumes of smoke and tasty flavors of sweet wood and spice. A nice aroma as well. Good performer good taste but not stellar by any stretch.

"Typical CAO"

Review Notes: Like the Italia, the Criollo has a distinctive taste along with other more typical tobacco flavors. I found some notes of walnut and a subtle musky flavor I couldn't quite place but it was by no means unpleasant. Otherwise it's a nice, sharp tasting full bodied smoke of dark tobacco and sweetness on the finish. Not unlike an RP "Edge". The draw leaves a lot to be desired though. I don't think its difficulty is due to construction but, rather, the amount of oil in this sucker. Unless pre-aged, there really is no way you are going to get very far with these right off the truck. The best bet is at least 6 months of aging but if you really want to smoke one sooner, try letting them sit two weeks and then dry-box them for 3-4 days , set them back in the humi for another 2 days and then enjoy. They should draw better and the oils should have hardened enough to allow it to stay lit. To be honest though, the ones who will enjoy these most are true cigar aficionados who will let them sit for a year or more and be rewarded with a fantastic smoke at the end of their waiting.

"Distinctive but not Distinguished"

Review Notes: The CAO Criollo Series has a distinctive look that matches it taste like a good tie matches a suit. CAO has a kind of aged, local, rough hewned, package going on here. You can tell they've worked hard at it. However, (you knew there was going to be a however) as distinctive as this cigar is, it lacks one thing ...FLAVOR. I would have to describe the Pato's taste as leather, with a hints of spice. I'm sure some out there will like it, but for me it was a decent smoke, but my money could be much better spent. I will say I did not experience any burn or draw problems, in fact that was the strength of this and most CAO cigars.
