Review Notes: Another winner from CAO. This cigar was smoked in celebration of a wonderful evening. I purchased it from a local cigar shop, it cost $ 11.00. This is my first time trying one of these, and I am happy as usual. The extreme tubo II is a long one, about 7 inches. The construction is fair, the packaging though is impressive. The appearance is very nice, the dark brown wrapper just draws you in. I did not have a cigar cutter on me so the gentleman at the cigar shop cut it for me, nice and thin just the way I like it. I took a draw of it, unlit, it was a little hard. I lit the cigar it maintained a hard draw through the first couple of inches, then became easier. The burn was ok for the first half of the cigar, but then began to tunnel up one side. I ended up having to cut a piece of the ash end off and relight it, after that it burned just fine. I smoked this old girl for about 2 and a half hours. After 3/4 it plugged a bit on me, this thing is so long that it was only a matter of time. After finding a cutter in my glove box I snipped a little more off the cut end. The taste was simply was great, a full bodied smoke, and a great smoke aroma. I tasted a hint of cocoa, lightly. I will smoke more of these if I can get them at a good price, but I still prefer the CAO Belicosco Maduro. Bottom line: All in all a good cigar, it was perfect for my long drive home.
