Review Notes: Wrapped up one of these beasts about a half hour ago and have to say that I wasn't all that impressed. This is a very attractive looking cigar with an over-sized ring gauge and toothy barber pole wrapper. This thing feels solid as a rock, packed to the brim with filler tobacco. Used a punch cut since it was too big to fit into my Xikar. Opening tastes were pepper and spice. After the first inch cedar came in on the front half with creamy coffee on the finish. This sounds like a rather complex smoke but it really isn't. The finish is very short and the other flavors don't last all that long either. Draw was fine and it smoked cool from start to finish. The burn though was another story. Tunneled on me three times and would run on one side unless it was monitored carefully. With about an inch and a half left it started to run again and I just let it go. One thing I can say though is that the wrapper didn't come apart on me like others here have reported, so I guess that's good. Overall, this was an O.K. smoke. Of all the "national" series CAO makes (Brazilia, Italia & America) this one is probably my least favorite. Wouldn't recommend unless you're really dying to try one.
