"A Great Cameroon!!"
I really love this cigar from it's box press shape the consistant draw and constuction. I only wish that Nick P. would have such consistancy with his own brand.

"Great Taste, tight draw"
A rich, smooth, full flavor that ranks up there with the best, but the draw seems consistently tight. I suspect the box press shape accounts for that, and I note some other reviewers commented on it as well. That is a definite "draw-back" (sorry), but the rich flavor makes up for it. Let them age in your humidor and they loosen up a bit if the tight draw bothers you.

"YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR"
I have had this in my "select" humidor for 2 months and finally fired it up. A nice looking,smooth,cigar with a flakey ash,easy draw, and starts mild building all the way to full bodied. A bit dry with a taste of cedar and some coffee. A rather short finish for such a full flavored cigar. At $7.50 i think i can do better with an Ashton VSG. I dont mind a box press BUT this is a full trunk press making it flat. Dont care for that.

"Quickly became one of my favorites"
CAO has done an excellent job with this cigar. It has a very solid construction, and the Cameroon wrapper makes a fantastic companion with the Nicaraguan filler. Ordinarily, I shy away from Cameroon, but I was pleasantly surprised when I had this one. Smooth from start to finish, with a very easy draw. And the bouquet... wonderful. The only thing I didn't like was that it didn't burn as evenly as I'd hoped. (But, that could be due to my poor cigar lighting skills). And the ash was a little flaky. Still, minor details considering all this cigar has going for it. It definitely ranks as one of my personal favorites.

"Very plesant surpirse"
A local tobacconist suggested I try one of these. Was I impressed! This is great smoke!
Wonderful after dinner company for an evening on the porch. I highly recommend it.
