"Too "woodsy""

Review Notes: As a cigar novice, this one did not impress at all. The flavor was too "woodsy" for me and did not change at all during the entire smoke. There certainly wasn't any creamy or buttery taste for me. It was almost like smoking a 2 by 4. It did burn very well however and the draw was adequate. Was recommended this by a B&M for being a good beginner smoke. I hope that is not the case.

"Needs More Research"

Review Notes: I got one of these in a sampler-pack and let it nap for a good while. Now I know one cigar does not a good review make, so I will try to be kind. The wrapper is quite nice, it seems to shimmer in the light. But as soon as I lite it up the wrapper cracked and split, it turned into a real mess. The burn was OK, I did not need to touch it up. I really like the flavors of wood and cedar, the cedar pops right out onto my taste buds. To me, this is a mild-med. smoke that started out very mild and then morphed into a solid med. profile. I am going to buy a 5-pack for further research, that is the least I can do for this solid tasting cigar.

"30 Minute Mauling"

Review Notes: I prefer to punch cut the end. The pre light is so wonderful I can almost taste the aromatic blend. The first thrid is awesome as Im not sure how the draw is exactly because right away Im all over it sucking in the smoke. The 2nd third seems to come quickly but oh my golly gosh its nutty and earthy and awesome. I tend to calm down a bit on drawing on it during the 2nd third while exhaling the smoke. The finish occurs relatively quickly for me as I can Maul one of these Robustos in roughly 30 minutes and enjoy it immensely. I dont necessarily relax with this cigar like I do slow burning cigars however for the 30 minutes this CAO Gold lasts for me I sure enjoy the taste of the blend of tobaccos. I maul this size in roughly 30 minutes or less yet I enjoy it for its tobacco tasting satisfaction.

"Delightful Smoke"

Review Notes: The Experience: Initial Impression— It was impressed by the looks of this cigar. It came highly recommended by the tobacconist at a new store I’d found in my geographical area. It was my first time checking the place out so when one of the employees came into the humidor to inquire as to my smoking preference, he quickly showed me to this section. Appearance— It came wrapped in cellophane with a golden brown color to its leaf. I found the leaf to be dry in nature (as in, not oily) and very smooth. I found the cigar itself to be slightly hard, but I don’t know that it’s the fault of the cigar shop, as much as my humidor may have been under humidified and the cigar itself started to dry out. Now, I’m mortified to admit this to my readers, but I’m going to in interest of full disclosure. I had taken my lighter and cutter with me to a friend’s house earlier that week in anticipation of a Guy’s Cigar night. I knew that the other gentlemen there would be in attendance sans the appropriate cigar gear, so I brought mine along to aid. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring the lighter/cutter back into my home (I left them for days in the car) and when it came time to cut my cigar….I had to use scissors. I know, pick your jaw up from the floor. Trust me, cutting a cigar with scissors is not the ideal way to cut the cap off your smoke. As you well can imagine, the end was frayed with bits of wrapper which ultimately lead to an inconvenient smoke. There’s nothing worse that having little bits of leaf tickling your lips or tongue when you’re trying to enjoy a quality smoke. Lighting/Burning/Ash— I found that, despite my best attempt to destroy the cigar by cutting the cap with a pair of scissors, my rest of the lighting process was delightful. It had an even initial light, as well as an even initial burn. As I moved through the cigar, roughly 25 mins later, the middle was just as tasty and its ash maintained a quality solid white/black ash. The burn rate, from beginning to end, was perfect which required to re-lighting nor any canoeing of the stick. Consistency/Draw— The draw was excellent, with no plugging nor feeling of puffing on a paper towel roll. I also appreciate that I didn’t have to constantly keep puffing on it so that it wouldn’t go out. I find that if cigars are rolled too tightly they won’t retain their burn during the resting process. It had an even burn whether resting or when puffing on it. Maintenance/Flavor— Overall good maintenance of the cigar. Again, the only drawback is of course the fact that I mutilated the end of it causing ripped pieces of wrapper to be a nuisance to my experience. Reflection & Rating I found this to be a decent cigar. It wasn’t too strong but I could see how smoking it without first having enjoyed a heavy meal could lead a weak stomach (such as myself) to become nauseous. I found it to be neither too mild nor to flavorful. I probably wouldn’t recommend this cigar to a newbie. I think someone who smokes a cigar once a week for four or five months would be able to enjoy it to the same extent I did. This is not a cigar which will be placed on my “To Buy” list. For that reason, I would rate this smoke as a B.
