Review Notes: I don't know what it is--perhaps just bad luck. Brazilias give me more construction woes than any other of the CAO cigars. To tell you the truth, I've never been quite the fan of the Brazilia as I know most smokers to be. That said, I still think the it is a fine smoke, and this savory churchill was no exception. This cigar had been resting for about a year and a half, and it is now apparent to me that these smokes get better and better with age. From a flavor perspective, this was probably the best Brazilia I've ever had. Young, I think they can be exceedingly harsh, but this cigar remained smooth throughout. It is a leathery smoke to be sure. Unfortunately, during the first half it canoed despite repeaed touch ups. I finally got the thing evened out about half way through, but I HATE having to deal with construction flaws when I just want a relaxing smoke. Nevertheless, these Brazilias are a fine smoke, although I prefer the MX2, Black, and Italia.
