Review Notes: I love CAO cigars. Some of my favorite maduros are CAO (Lx2, VR, Brazilia) so when I ran across the Gold Maduro for $30 per 10 at CI I couldn't pass it up. The construction and overall quality of the wrapper is lacking. Its clearly not up to the standards I'm used to with CAO. The burn was fine and didn't really run on me, which is what I expected with that construction. The taste wasn't good from the first light to the final drag. It had a taste that I could only describe as sour. Very green, very grassy. I've let them sit in the humidor for several months and they do not get any better. Avoid this cigar. There are better $3/stick values to be found.
