Review Notes: As expected, this was a very full body cigar. Several other mfrís make a stronger version of their standard sticks, but usually it turns out to be harsh or bitter, with little flavor. CAO has avoided that mistake by upping the flavor along with the spice. This smoke is well balanced, tasted good, and smooth to the last inch. Iíd put it in the same category as a VSG for body and flavor. I smoked it past the ring, however it started turning at about the 1Ē point. I purged, but it did little to correct. A few puff later, I had to put it down. Interestingly, the eX didnít leave much of a finish. Most full body cigars leave the flavor on my palate long after the smoke, but the eX went flat soon after I finished. I enjoy all of CAOís offerings, and this one didnít disappoint, but I donít think Iíll be turning to this one as often as the Criolloís, or the Brazilliaís.
