CAO Brazilia Corcovado
This highly-rated CAO cigars series was created to celebrate the vivacious spirit of Brazil. Packaged in festive colored boxes, with most sizes in extra-wide ring gauges, CAO Brazilia cigars are blended with rich tasting, smooth-smoking Nicaraguan fillers & binders. Each cigar is expertly wrapped in oily, dark-brown Brazilian leaves harvested from a rare, outstanding crop, and carefully aged to the peak of flavor for a vibrant full-bodied and aromatic smoke. One of CAO's best cigars!
Wow, a very enjoyable smoke from CAO. I was not too sure about this stick simply because I had found many maduro wrappers not for my liking. However, this little fella was a real power house. Very please. GREAT construction and draw. Taste had hints of coffee and the Nicaragan flavors I have grown to desire. 5 Star smoke. Highly recommend.
Don't let the size fool you. They last for over an hour for me. Great taste. Easy draw. Definitely worth the money. Especially if you get them from the monster!
My local tobacconist brought one of these back from the New Orleans Cigar show for me to try. My first reaction was that it looked like a fat NUB. I smoked it for their review. I found it to be an altogether delicious cigar and longer lasting than its short stature would indicate. I confess to being a fan of Nicaraguan cigars in general. As the Joya Antano Gran Reserva (no longer produced) is my very favorite cigar and the new Dark Corojo Poderoso is a current favorite. CAO makes consistently good cigars and this may just be their very best in my opinion.
