CAO OSA Sol quicky

I tend to do simple write ups of new stoagies on my blog, so here's a quick one on this new 58 ring-gaugue monster.

The OSA Sol, a Honduran, Habano, comes in a nice gigantasaurus 58 ring gauge stoagie, just how they all should be! This is a very mild smoke overall.

The taste has a slight peppery-bite to it, but not at all overwhelming or annoying, and it's quite nice to my mouth. It adds just a little something-something to the smooth draw and coco-like dry-sweetness (I know, that sounds conflicting) found within it.

The cocoa-sweetness continues in the aroma, containing other enjoyable deeper-sweet notes all around. There is a slight tinge to the nose with the smokey scent, so inhaling the aroma deeply isn't really wise, but it's something I found fun to tease for want of enjoying the scent coming from this.

Largely due to its size, I found myself comparing it to my other large-friend the Lovo Magnum Twist. Both of these monsters have a similair mellowness to them and lots of sweetness. A box of these CAO OSA's are very well priced at just $100, so I may find myself ordering a box of this along with the Lovo soon, and a new humidor to hold 'em!

One thing that did devlop as seen in the photo here, is the wrapper started breaking apart near the burn. It never came unraveled, but this happened all on its own. Looks nasty!

Thanks for reading.

Re: CAO OSA Sol quicky

Just a quick update on this wonderful cigar. I bought a 5 pack in a recent cigar order I placed. Went out in the back yard a little while ago and lit it up, puffed a few and went back into the house to make a martini.

I came back outside and was amazed at the atmospheric aroma this stoagie was producing. I'm finding that a cigar's scent is quite different from a distance compared to what I smell close up. It's a great cigar in this respect and was just enjoyable.

I found, after they aged a couple weeks in the humidor, that it has more of a herbal quality to it than I first noticed.

A really good cigar that just went up a notch, maybe into my top 10+. :smoke2:
