Review Notes: I had one of these last night after a Christmas charity function. We left to get a bite at a local pub and I ordered this CAO not knowing it was a flavored cigar, so that's my fault... The cigar has a beautiful, silken brown wrapper with a nice feel and heft. That's where the fun ended for me. Once it touched my lips the overpowering, sticky sweet vanilla simple syrup soaked cap was all I could taste. Like a weird combination of Monin flavored syrup and Drambuie. I thought I caught some creamy and woodsy notes in the first third; but I just don't know. I think this cigar might have been an enjoyable surprise if they had soaked the cap, say, 1/3 to 1/2 as much; but as is, there's more emphasis on candy than on tobacco. I couldn't imagine smoking this with a cordial, though I might pair it up with something dry like vermouth. C'est la vie, this is not the cigar for me.
