Review Notes: I was astounded by this cigar. I was looking for the Piranha, but my store only had Gols, so I took one. Supposedly, the wrapper is natural, but it looks like something between a colorado and a maduro. Guess that's because it's that weird Brazilian tobacco. It's fat, at 5 x 56. Feels hard, but not box pressed. Took a while to get it lit, but it burned beautifully, at least until I got halfway down, where it started to go a little off course. Perfect white ash. Thick smoke. If I had not known it was a CAO, I would have assumed it was a Cuban, although it doesn't look like one. The closest thing to it in my experience is a Romeo y Julieta EL Exhibicion #2. It has the same chocolaty taste, and a good dose of spice. Very complex. Somewhere between the taste of a maduro and a natural. It got slightly bitter at one point, but it cleared up, and I smoked it until I could no longer hold onto it. It lasted around 50 minutes. When I finally put it down, I stared at it for a minute and wondered if it had really been that good.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (6) No (5)
