CAO Cameroon Churchill
6 7/8 x 48 - Natural - Box of 20
CAO Cameroon Churchill cigars were first introduced in 1999 and have received ratings as high as '92,' which is why these box-pressed cigars from Nicaragua are sure to satisfy the full-flavor-loving palate. The vintage Cameroon wrappers perfectly complement the rich Nicaraguan filler and binder for a taste that's been described as 'smooth from start-to-finish' with complex flavors and an equally complex aroma with scents of cocoa, coffee bean and cedar.
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.
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.
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.
