Hello again everybody.  For today’s review, let’s take a peek at the CAO LX2 Rob and the El Titan De Bronze Grand Reserve Maduro. 

CAO LX2 Rob

CAO is a family-owned cigar company that has been around since 1980.  The company name is derived from the initials of its founder, Cano A. Ozgener.  Thanks to its growth during the cigar boom of the 90’s, CAO is now a well known brand and produces a wide variety of cigar blends that are sold internationally.  The CAO LX2 is a full-bodied cigar and is the third and final installment of the manufacturer’s X2 trilogy.  The LX2 in the cigar’s title stands for Ligero times two.  In other words, its filler is a blend of Ligero tobacco from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua which is grown at Pueblo Nuevo, a private 140-acre tobacco farm in Condega, Nicaragua. 

The CAO LX2 Rob is a robusto cigar and measures 5 x 48, although you can also find the CAO LX2 for sale as a Toro (6 x 50) or a Beli (6.5 x 52).  As mentioned earlier, it is a full-bodied cigar with a filler made from Nicaraguan and Dominican Ligero tobacco.  It has a Nicaraguan wrapper and a binder from Honduras.

The CAO LX2 Rob is one of the better looking cigars out there in my opinion.  It has a unique appearance unlike most other cigars.  This is especially true of the bands.  Both bands are very striking to the casual eye and are a rich mixture of black, gold, and gray.  The bottom band has “Fortaleza Tres” in gold cursive.  If you translate it from Spanish to English, it means triple strength, which could be alluding to the full-bodied nature of the cigar.  The thicker band closer to the head of the cigar bears the company logo and the name of the cigar.  The bands are two of the best in terms of design by far, although I am partial to the color black so maybe that’s why I like them so much.  The cigar itself has a wrapper that gives it a very dark and oily appearance.  It’s definitely not one of the more subtle looking cigars.  Giving it a once over before lighting, you can tell that it is packed firm and it gives off an earthy taste and smell.
