I've been smoking the CAO Gold Torpedo for about 10 years now. I have always said and I say again that it is the sleeper of the century. It is a mild to strong cigar and it is soooo smooth. Flavors are complex enough to keep your interest. Eventually, I grew a fondness for these babies. I have many other very fine cigars in my humidors. DP Garcia Black, A. Fuente Don Carlos, DP Centurions, Siglo IV Cohiba's from the old country and many others. The CAO Gold Torpedo ranks very, very high up there for the flavor and smokability. They also get better with some aging. Yum.
