Review Notes: I'm finding more and more that I'm just not much of a Cameroon fan, so I'm going to try to keep that from influencing my review too heavily. I really like CAO's Cameroon, but that's about it. The Vegas de Fonseca I tried was pretty good and the Upmann Vintage Cameroon was also o.k., but I just donít care for the flavor much. This one was o.k., although it tasted very distinctly of cardboard with a light dusting of black pepper. At about the half-way point, a hint of vanilla came though for about 2 puffs, but that was about the only subtle complexity I picked up on. Towards the end, some garlic flavors became noticeable, but that made me want to toss it more than anything. Overall, I was less than impressed with the flavor, but I had to give some credit for the construction. Although the draw was slightly tight, the cigar was a work of art. The shape was beautiful, the burn was perfect the entire time and the ash never showed any signs of wanting to fall off. I only had to knock it off twice during the entire smoke. In summary, I'm a big fan of Aurora cigars, but I probably won't be smoking any more of their Cameroon offerings with the exception of the robusto I already have in my humidor.
