"Good, but hard to get smoke out"

Review Notes: Beautiful dark wrapper with quite a few veins. Tough to light and has a very firm draw. Initially very spicy with a strong toastiness. Spiciness soon drops off and is replaced by a reasonably mellow earthiness, though the toastiness remains. Initially the draw is just too firm…there isn’t enough oxygen going through this puppy, so if you don’t stay on it the cigar will go out. Also, the excessively tight draw means the smoke is limited so you cannot get much flavor out of it. About an inch into the cigar the draw loosens up and the burn finally takes hold. At that point it maintains an even burn on its own and without much difficulty, producing a good amount of full-bodied smoke. Then the more subtle flavors become more apparent: the flavor of roasted cashews stands out, and some dried fruit accompanies the earthiness. Once it FINALLY gets going, this cigar has a great flavor and exhibits good construction, but it takes a while for these qualities to come out. The initial burn issues are the thing preventing this cigar from being a great cigar.

Review Notes: This cigar has an amazing construction and appearance, something that I've notice in all of the cigars made by CAO. However, this ones flavor is average at best with a mild-medium spice. It's a pretty cheap cigar though.

"Don't smoke this if you're hungry..."

Review Notes: God, I've really gotta try different companies. I have smoked 4 CAO cigars out of the 6 cigars I've ever smoked. This stick though, wow, what a great experience. The structure was great, the light was easy, the burn was somewhat uneven, but seriously, this is one of the best cigars I've ever had. It went from sweet and creamy to fruity and tangy and then coffee/woody and yum! I would gladly buy a box of these, but I would make sure to not smoke it on an empty stomach again. Though it may taste awesome, this does not count as a meal.
