CAO Brazilia Amazon
6 x 60 - Maduro - Box of 20
CAO Brazilia Amazon cigars present a super-sized, complex cigar blended with full-bodied Nicaraguan tobaccos seamlessly rolled in extra-flavorful, dark Brazilian wrappers. Notes of cedar and exotic spices dance on the palate for a long, flavorful finish with an inviting floral aroma. A must-smoke!
General Cigar's recent acquisition of CAO is a sad thing. They have changed the MX2 and Brazilia cigar lines so drastically that I will no longer be smoking CAO cigars. I have smoked CAO's Brazilias and MX2s almost exclusively for over 10 years, but their horrible immitation of CAO's original brilliant blends are un-smokeable. Gone is the lush, oily wrapper and complex taste. General Cigar has replaced them with a very dry leaf and a one-dimensional, flavorless blend. The construction of the cigar is equally disappointing. The wrap is loose and the cigar tends to just fall apart. I cannot express how disappointed I am in what General Cigar has done to my beloved CAOs.
The CAO Brazilia used to be my favorite cigar. It was until General Cigar got their hands on it and changed this brand completely. My review reflects the new, General Cigar CAO Brazilia.
This is one great cigar, smooth taste, burns well and the aroma is wonderful. Would recommend this cigar
Just had the CAO Brazilia, and I have to say I'm impressed. First time trying it and it wasn't very tasty about until an inch or so into the burn. However the stick gives a great flavor and a nice pillow of smoke with a draw that I found to be extremely easy. Burned for about 1 hr 20 mins. Pros: Great draw, nice full yet mellow flavor. Cons: Zero flavor in 1st inch (maybe I just had a weak stick) Anyhow, great cigar, will most likly be visiting the Brazilia family again.
