Flavor-wise, the Escaparate Costa Rica does not disappoint. I wouldn't call it the most complex smoke, but it does offer a nice variety of flavors to keep things from getting dull. The first third begins with sweetness right off the bat that is joined with earth. The second third offers mild spice that is soon joined by a rich combination of coffee and chocolate. The final third re-introduces the earthiness experienced in the beginning, as well as more delicious chocolate. Overall, it was medium-bodied, just as advertised.

When all is said and done, I have to say that I enjoyed the CAO Escaparate Costa Rica. The cigar looked good thanks to its colorful band and inviting wrapper, and the positive impression continued with the burn and flavor. It's a stick that is perfect for beginners, and experienced smokers looking for something smooth would probably enjoy the Escaparate as well. As for the price, a single sells for around $12 each. It could be considered overpriced, but it is a quality cigar with limited supply. It also comes in ruedas of 50 or packs of five.

The CAO Escaparate Costa Rica Belicoso earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

God of Fire Serie B Gran Toro

Prometheus introduced its God of Fire Serie B line at the 2011 IPCPR show in Las Vegas. The final release came at the end of the year on a limited basis. Only two vitolas were produced, each with differing wrappers. For this review I will be sampling the Gran Toro.

The God of Fire Serie B Gran Toro measures 6 x 56. The other offering in the line, the Robusto Gordo, measures 5 ½ x 54. The cigar has a Dominican filler and binder. Completing the composition is a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. The Robusto Gordo keeps the same filler and binder, but it employs an Ecuadorian Sun Grown wrapper.
