After striking a match, the CAO LX2 Rob burns nicely without much trouble.  The flavors experienced are excellent and numerous.  At first it throws a hard punch with a good amount of bold pepper flavor, but eventually eases up and becomes sweeter.  The bold flavor at the beginning gives way to some nice hints of coffee and nuts, and leads to a bit of cinnamon and finally some chocolate.  It’s an impressive gamut of flavors indeed.

The CAO LX2 Rob is definitely worth a try.  Not only does it just look good, but it performs even better.  The flavors will definitely keep your palate on its toes and the burn is satisfactory.  The CAO LX2 Rob  is priced at around $7 for a single, but you can also get it in boxes of 20.  Do keep in mind that if you are not too keen on full-bodied cigars that you may want to look elsewhere, though, as when you first light up the flavor is definitely bold.  Other than that though, take the plunge and pick one up!  Its excellent flavor gets the CAO LX2 Rob a four star rating. 

El Titan De Bronze Gran Reserva Maduro Corona

El Titan De Bronze is a cigar manufacturer that saw its start in 1995 and preaches quality over quantity.  All of its cigars are made in the United States at its headquarters in the Little Havana section of Miami.  Although not situated in Cuba, El Titan De Bronze does their best to replicate all the nostalgic tastes of their homeland at their address on the much-publicized Calle Ocho, and the company has recently decided to expand their reach beyond South Florida.  The manufacturing standards self-placed on the cigars produced by El Titan De Bronze  are so strenuous that it limits their production, and places them in the boutique category of cigars.  The end result, however, is a cigar produced with care and attention to detail.  They only employ the best to hand-roll their cigars, and most have experience at some of the top factories in the world such as Partagas and Romeo y Julieta.  Workers practice the traditional Cuban method of tubing the filler and then finishing it off with a triple cap, after which another master roller inspects it to ensure its quality.  Once deemed acceptable, the cigars are boxed and dated for public consumption. 

The El Titan De Bronze Grand Reserve Maduro Corona (say that five times fast!) measures 5.75 x 48.  It’s filler is a blend of Nicaraguan and Santo Domingo Cuban Seed tobacco.  It has a Brazilian Maduro wrapper and an Ecuadorian binder. 

The El Titan De Bronze Grand Reserve Maduro Corona is a bit dark in appearance and could be described as more dry than oily on the exterior.  It also has a good amount of veins running throughout.  It is highlighted by two flashy bands that are eye-catching.  The bands are a mixture of red, gold, and white.  The bottom band tells you that it is a Maduro cigar.  The top band near the head bears the company and cigar name, as well as its logo.  A quick smell and taste of the cigar before lighting reveals some smoky or spicy characteristics.
