CAO Brazilia Gol ! Reviews
This is a wonderfull cigar. I have yet to find any thing close to it in taste.
I got this in a Famous sampler and unfortunately it's probably the worst cigar experience I ever had. I chose to smoke this stick first out of the 80+ cigars I ordered because it had a beautiful look, feel, and aroma. On cut/light up I first used a punch, checked the draw and it was like I didn't even do anything to it at all. I went ahead and did a straight cut, checked again and it barely improved. I went ahead and lit it up to see if it could open up a little after a few puffs. It's DIDN'T. The aroma and taste (the little bit of smoke I did get) was nice. After I ended it, I cut it open and this thing was basically twigs wrapped in binder. I'm going to assume I just got a bad stick, but I'm not willing to order more in order to find out. I was shocked considering how well reviewed this stick is, and also because of how nice it appeared to be constructed.
I am pretty much a beginner and have just started to enjoy full strength smokes but this one was really smooth and I was pleasantly surprised at how mild it felt. Burn was a little problematic at times but overall a great smoke that I would purchase again.
Really enjoy these, taste is fantastic, good draw. Unfortunately 4 of the last 5 started to fall apart within the first couple of minutes. The Samba seems to hold together much better than the Gol.
I would rate the taste to 96% but the poor construction spoils it with about 80% quality. Overall, it is easily a 90% smoking experience. Rich smoke, nutty-chocolatty flavours and even, well balanced burn. Quite frankly, it is a kind of no-brainer at this price point. And what do I know, maybe I was just unlucky with the poor wrapper finish.
The burn, consistency, and full-bodied taste are fantastic. While I will take a chance and buy again, the previous 5-Pack I received were cracked around the wrapper, right beneath the label.
As far as taste, burn, appearance and draw go this cigar scores well, however the construction needs improvement. The outer leaf on this cigar is very thin and I ve had a few crack and split during the 2nd third which can really ruin a otherwise enjoyable cigar
I ve tried this brand in a sampler and this time got a box. Not disappointed. It s a well constructed and flavourful cigar - lots of smoke to let the anti cigar people know you re there! The pre-light draw is nice as is the aroma. Burned without a flaw and the price is excellent.
Tried it as part of a sampler pack. Wouldn't try it again. I'm usually for second chances, not for this one.
