"A true smoke pleasure"
I have been buying these off and on now for 3 years. I always come back to them for the pure smoking pleasure of an after dinner cigar that I enjoy ..If you like a full body smoke, Give these a try.

"My Favorite Maduro"
This is my favorite maduro cigar as well as being my favorite CAO stick. This is a full-bodied cigar, but has a really smooth taste. The maduro wrapper has an excellent dark color, and the band has a great contrast. This cigar has a complex taste with some coffee and earthy notes, but is blended perfectly to give a balanced taste throughout.

"Wow CAO CAO!"
This is an awesome cigar! I started off worried because the beginning aroma reminded me of B.O., but it fairly quickly moved to full and smooth cedar and creamy cocoa. Smoke was thick, burn was very even with long ash, draw was perfect. Unfortunately this was the end of my sampler, but I will be ordering more soon!

My only complaint is that it did not last as long as I expected, but the flavor and how it paired with the whiskey is worth a shot.

Wow. My package arrived today and I was drawn to this stick as I have read the reviews and couldn't wait. Picked this up in a sampler for a steal and can't wait to smoke the next one. This stick is not for beginners because 1) they won't appreciate the complexity; and 2) strong! First cigar in a while I got a nicotine kick from. Rolling it between my finger pre-light, it was very dense and the smell was...well not too attractive. I do my usual lighting routine where I light first, cut second and this cigar has outperformed many before it. First few puffs I tasted strong cocoa notes and a slight leather hint and a earthy after taste. As I continued, the cocoa faded and the leather became more prominent, which was a surprise. The last 1/3 got a little bitter, but the first 2/3 was definitely worth sacrificing the remaining third for. Burn was razor straight, never needing a touch up or re-light. Ash was unimpressive, light gray and not holding past an inch and a half. Overall a great smoke and I'm stoked I still have 4 left in my humidor to age. I'll post another review on the aged Gol!'s.

I hope I just had a bad one. The only thing I was able to taste past the heavy tobacco was bitter bakers chocolate. I love a full bodied cigar and have been quite taken with Padron's, Perdomo's and even Sancho Panza's. This CAO just didn't do it for me. And I stress ME, maybe others will find it smokeable.

"Beware- This is a full strength cigar!"
A powerful flavor and strength that can knock your socks off. Be careful if you are not a regular smoker or if you are new to cigars. This is not for the faint of heart.
