C.A.O MX2 Gordo

 

The C.A.O MX2 is arguably one of the most popular cigars out there, though for me, I have to say it scored probably the lowest on this list; then again, it is up against some stuff competition.

 

The designation Mx2 means Double Maduro, and this guy wears a heavy Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper, that makes it a deep black in color. Thicker than any other Corona Gordas on this list (and on most lists), it might sit a little shakily in lesser jaws than my Churchill trained one. Something to consider when holding it as well.

 

The make-up of this cigar is from around the globe: Filler from Nicaragua, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, and Peru; Binder from Brasil; and Wrapper from Connecticut Broadleaf. It truly is a mutt of cigars.

 

Taste wise, this fellow is all wood and pepper. It has a difficult draw however, that only seems to improve slightly as you smoke it. It’s not a bad smoke, and one I would think about revisiting, but at over $7.30 a pop, you could probably find a better smoke. Then again, taste is in the mouth of the beholder.

C.A.O LX2 Toro

 

Not as girthy as its brother the Mx2, the Lx2, or double ligero, earns its name thanks to its filler, which is ligero from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. For me, this cigar was head over heels better than the Mx2, and is even a shiny nickel cheaper.

 

The wrapper is pure Nicaraguan and dark, with a binder out of Honduras. A bit of a tough draw, you can expect a delightful blend of chocolate, coffee, and leather flavors, that for me, offer one of the best “comfort” blends around. A great, solid cigar.

A belicoso is a figurado. They are more like the little cousins (although beli sizes vary, and actually they are more like the red-headed stepchild) of a torpedo--no relation to a corona gorda except they are both cigars.

These are all toros (or bigger!). None of these cigars are corona gordas.
