"Shrugging my Shoulders"
I had this sitting in my humidor for a few months, and decided that a Sunday evening would be the perfect time to enjoy this cigar. Very well constructed, but the burn was forever sloppy. As for the taste, it didn't have any bad flavors, but it left me shrugging my shoulders. Nothing complex, nothing fascinating, and nothing that would make me run out and buy a box. This was strange to me, as the aroma was top notch. I will certainly give this cigar another chance. This was the second CAO that I was less than thrilled with; odd as they make some of my all time favorite cigars.

"Every day is Carnival with this smoke"
I am pretty skeptical of products with snazzy wrappers and logos, however, this cigar left me with a perma-grin and chomping at the bit for more. I have smoked many premium cigars over the years, including top-notch Cubans in different parts of the world. The Brazilia got my attention, though. Well done, CAO! I ordered two boxes as soon as I was through smoking this gem.

I have reviewed many cigars here. I want to join everyone here and write a good review for this cigar but it's only half good. The draw and burn on this cigar was great. The ash went almost two inches before falling off. I never had to re-light either. But, the taste was what I was waiting for. I just didn't like the flavor. It was very harsh, peppery, burn-like feel and taste. I might try one more just to see if it was a bad stick because the overwhelming review here is excellant.

"Good draw, even burn, no bite, complex full flavor"
This is a silky smooth dark cigar with exquisite complex flavor. Sometimes burns unevenly but very even draw. It's now my favorite!

"A real treat."
Great taste and aroma. Full bodied, yet mild. No unpleasant after taste. This is the one I like to stock up on.

Great cigar! Burn was consistent as well as the great taste. Try one, you will not be disappointed.

All around excellent stick. Smooth draw, slow burn, great smoke volume. Mild stick smokers might want to stay away, but for full body this is a 'must try'.

I liked this cigar the first time I tried it. Very full flavor in this one. Slow burning, nice ash, good aroma.
If you are not a fan of full-bodied cigars this might not be for you.
You just can't go wrong with this one.
