Review Notes: This is a less spicy version of the Brazilia line, in my opinion. Attractive rich dark brown toothy wrapper with medium veins and no soft spots. Solid construction. Subtle prelight aroma. Easy light. Even burn without the need for correction. Slightly firm draw. White smoke and a dense white-gray ash. Started with pepper and spice, which softened into woody notes by the end of the first third, particularly oak. Then transitioned into an earthy flavor with a hint of burnt coffee in the middle third (still with elements of the initial flavor profile). Finished with a medley of the above with an herbaceous note that became more prominent. All in all, this 1 hour 15 minute smoke was pleasant but did not grab my attention as much as the Brazilia line, which is my favorite from CAO. Still, it was an enjoyable experience and a vitola that was just right for a late afternoon/early evening smoke after a long day at the office. Paired well with a summer lager.
