Review Notes: Well, I'm a sucker for great packaging, so I had to try one of these when they showed up on my local shop's shelves. To begin, they are well made and very pretty, as one would expect from CAO. The cap is thick and made for a solid bullet cut. At first light, I must say that I was a little disappointed with the lack of flavor, but the volume of smoke coming out of this thing was remarkable. The word on the street is that CAO draw tests every one of these things, and it shows. My first few puffs, however, were deceiveing as this cigar started to get it in gear about a half inch in and continued to produce a stong, but not spicy, flavor with no particularly dominate flavor, but concentrating on the creamy, leathery, nutty side of things. Maybe it was me (I had only had two slices of pizza for lunch) but I found this smoke to be quite powerfull, especially for a CAO. You can really appreciate the Piloto wrapper and two kinds of Ligero filler in this cigar. Overall, a good to great smoke, but for $14 I would MUCH rather buy a Padron Aniv. and have a FANTASTIC cigar where I'm not paying for a box that I don't get to keep. CAO, if you're listening, sell these to tobacco shops sans fancy box for selling singles and with the fancy box for selling boxes. That way we might could get this cigar in the 7 buck-a-piece range where it would really shine as a nice full cigar that's exceptionally constructed.
