Review Notes: This cigar started off with a nice taste, but as it approached the middle, it became noticeably harsher. In addition, the burn became quite uneven. There WERE hints of chocolate and leather, but by the time I got within an inch of the ring, the tastes had become indistinguishable.

"Couldn't Quite Get It Together"

Review Notes: The CAO Virtuoso Encore is an interesting cigar with it's hints of cocoa and dark chocolate with a trace of nuts and fruit. Sounds like it would be wonderful. Unfortunately, the Encore doesn't quite live up to the sum of it's parts. This cigar proves that complexity doesn't always equal delicious. Something goes wrong and none of the flavors are particularly good individually or blended. This stick just couldn't quite get it together to make the move from good to very good. Don't get me wrong it's a little above average, but all that hype ... . Maybe it needs more time in the humidor, I've only had it a couple of months. Right now this gar is no more a virtuoso than my nephew in the high school band.

"Not too impressed"

Review Notes: Age definitely helped on this stick , but it didn't make it all that great. I found this to be a medium/full bodied smoke with a nice appearance and rather faint pre-light aroma. The smoke was rather dry and earthy with some notes of dark chocolate and a woodsy flavor. Draw was a tad tight, but was okay, while the burn was razor sharp. It smoked okay until the last inch and a half when it hit a plug and just wouldn't stay lit, which, for some reason, happens to me on Carlos Toranos at a bit of a frequency. This was okay, but not something I'd make as a staple in my humodor.

Review Notes: Smoked two so far. Spicey-choco-coffee flavors prevalent in both. Appearance and construction fine in both. Body was mostly medium in the first and near full in the second. I liked it but nothing mindblowing. The first had about 3 months of aging the second had about 6 months. Paid approx. 5.00 per.
