Now let’s talk about the Brazilia Carnivale’s flavor.  It is spicy, and that is the first flavor that it noticed.  The pepper isn’t too strong at the start, but there’s just enough to let you know it’s there.  Some chocolate and sweetness also appears in the first third.  The second third picks up in its spiciness, and I also detect some more chocolate plus coffee.  The final third finishes things off with chocolate and sweet notes.

The CAO Brazilia Carnivale was a very enjoyable stick.  It impressed me right from the start with its appearance.  Construction was solid, and the variety of flavors were satisfying as well.  I also enjoyed the spiciness, although it was not overpowering.  I would recommend the Carnivale to CAO fans and those who enjoy cigars with big ring gauges.  Don’t delay if you want to give one a try, however, because they are limited.  They come in boxes of 12 at about $8 per single and have supposedly been limited to brick and mortar locations.

The CAO Brazilia Carnivale earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

Esteban Carreras Covenant

The Covenant line from Esteban Carreras first made its way onto the scene during the 2012 IPCPR show.  This gives the brand over 10 lines of different blends to its name.  I’ll admit that I don’t have much experience with cigars from Esteban Carreras, so I don’t really know what to expect.  Hopefully the Covenant will leave a good impression and give me another brand to keep an eye on.

I selected the Robusto format from the Covenant line for this review.  It measures 5 ½ x 54.  Other sizes in the line include the 6 x 54 Toro, 6 ¼ x 54 Torpedo, and the 7 x 54 Double Corona.  The cigar is a Nicaraguan puro made completely out of tobacco from the Central American nation.  The wrapper is of the Habano Oscuro variety.  The strength of the Covenant is listed as full-bodied.
