I'm washing it down with a DPG black label Robusto.

CAO is dead to me. :hn
Two similiar threads on CAO in one day. Not looking good for the Italians.

Re: CAO Soprano - Associate

Totally agree about the Sopranos and the rest of the CAO crap that's out. I spent the $$ to buy a Soprano, aged it for a while, then when I finally torched it, it sucked. I've tried to bomb all the CAOs I ever get and dread when I'm bombed by one.

CAO, to me, is a boutique cigar that tries too hard and settles for mediocrity with their cigars. After the "black" dyed my fingers black for 3 days, I've thrown in the towel with this company.

That's too bad this stick didn't save the day for you, especially since it costs so dang much. Your chaser was a nice choice however, so it's not all bad.

Re: CAO Soprano - Associate Review

I have to admit that I rather like the MX2... A lot! Of course CAO does make a wide variety of cigars and flavors, so not every one of them is going to be a winner for me either, but I wouldn't say they were junk.

Sucks buying an expensive stick and hating it though. I feel you on that.
