purosublime2 Davidoff and CAO are two names known for putting out quality cigars. So, today we will review one cigar from each, starting with Davidoff's Puro d'Oro Sublime and ending with the Criollo Pato from CAO.

Davidoff Puro d'Oro Sublime

Davidoff's Puro d'Oro line is a bit of departure from the brand's usual methods of making cigars. With the Puro d'Oro, Davidoff ventured into non-Cuban territory. As its name would suggest, it is a puro made strictly from Dominican tobacco, and the use of tobacco from a single country follows old school traditions. Oro is the Spanish word for gold, so let's find out if this particular stick is worthy of carrying such a name.

The Puro d'Oro Sublime measures 4 1/2x 38. Davidoff also offers the line in three other sizes: the 4 7/8x 43 Deliciosos, the 5 1/8x 52 Magnificos, and the 5 5/8x 46 Notables. As mentioned, this is a Dominican puro made completely from tobaccos grown in the island nation. Besides the Dominican filler and binder, a special proprietary Dominican Yamasa leaf is used for the wrapper. Each cigar is topped off with a pigtail cap. The Sublime is said to fit into the full-bodied category.

The Sublime is an attractive cigar thanks to its Yamasa wrapper. It has a rich, dark brown color with just the right amount of oil on the surface. It's also very small, so a long smoke is not to be expected here. There are a few veins that are visible, but it appears to be smooth and constructed well overall. The cigar feels firm to the touch, and there are no real soft spots. An attractive gold band sits at the foot that really spruces up the cigar's appearance and represents the Puro d'Oro moniker well. The Sublime name is etched on the band in gold lettering. The pigtail cap adds a nice touch too. Before lighting, there is a scent and cold taste of hay.
