"Great aroma, a few surprises!"
First let me just start off by saying that I didn't expect much from this cigar, being a new line from CAO. Well I was completely wrong in my predisposition. The cigar is well textured and has a good feel, it compresses slightly when squeezed. The wrapper suits the name, it has the appearance of a fine leather jacket. As for the construction, it's very well built. The first ash lasted 1.5 inches, and it's not that it let go, it's that it went out and I had to break it off to relight it. Great cigars do that, like the intermission of an epic concert. The burn was perfectly even, and pleasantly slow, all the way through. The cigar produced plentiful and aromatic smoke, but not too thick. The draw was quite balanced, not too easy, not too hard, although it did get slightly tighter at around the halfway point. My favorite part was probably the aroma, it filled the room with a great smell (some cigars leave the room smelling kinda funky). In the taste department, its just like the description says, starts off with a kick of spice and then mellows out, with a few resurgences of spicyness. Like a rock concert, its not too complex: you have some idea of what it's gonna sound (taste) like but then there's a few surprises here and there. Overall an excellent cigar, I'll give it an A (93). Would definitely buy again!

"Oustanding Cigar!"
Bought a couple of these to try and was not disappointed. Perfect burn, construction, draw... you name it. The taste to me was earth and hint of sweetness. Highly suggest purchasing and trying these.

"GREAT smoke"
Didn't know what to expect from this as Famous sent me a single with my order. Not to look a gift horse in the mouth but I'm glad they did. As somewhat of a newb to the world of cigars this is easily one of the tastiest I ve smoked. Very smooth and taste of coffee hints of spice and pleasant sweetness. burned excellent even in semi-windy conditions and enjoyable on an empty stomach. Thanks Famous

"I like it."
I recieved this stogie as a gift. Not sure I would have tried this on my own. This is a milk chocolate colored cigar. The ash is nearly snow white which gives it a very apealing appearance. Nice creamy smooth taste and aroma that reminded me of roasting nuts and freshly ground coffee. I'll be getting more of these.

"From A Grateful Palate"
My friend bought this cigar for me and when I first seen it I was extremely impressed withthe chocolate color wrapper. So I lit her up and the draw was very impressive, I like to cut the cap enough to have a full draw but yet not lose control of the draw. The first flavor that popped during my first draw was a white pepper taste which was complimented with a touch of sweetness. However as I worked my way through the first third the complexeties of flavors was very delightful, I tasted coffee and light cocoa on the draw. On the release there was the pepper that just went so well with the other flavors. My palate was on taste overload, not in a bad over the top and lose any consistency, but in a very unique and enjoyable way. This is definitely one of my favorite sticks by CAO so far, and considering that this is the second cigar CAO, the first being the CAO OSA, has released since their acquisition by General Cigar Co. they hit it out of the park.
