"A Very Rich Cigar"
Because they may be too snug as a box-pressed, I have found they burn better if allowed to loosen up from outside the box. The draw and burn is perfect. It has a very rich, thick smoke and a short, dry finish - not a negative. It's like a dry wine with a character all its own. It gains momentum along the way and becomes quite full bodied by the end. It's very complex. Definitely a super premium cigar and one to keep around for special occasions. Available and at a good price too. Can't wait to try a CAO Extreme.

"CAO has a customer for life."
I bought an autographed box of Robusto's at the Big Smoke in New Orleans from the CAO booth and got to meet the Ozgener family. Mr. Ozgener's daughter is a sweetie by the way. I promptly lit one up and smoked it to my finger tips. This is an awesome cigar and a must have in your humidor. The box press provides an excellent draw and the flavors are to die for.
