CAO Concert Roadie
5 1/4 x 54 - Rosado - Box of 24
CAO Concert cigars were inspired by the brand's Nashville roots. Medium to full in body, CAO's Rick Rodriguez has created a marvelous harmony of flavor using a combination of 4 diverse Nicaraguan & Honduran fillers with a Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and rolled them in a lustrous Ecuadorian Habano Rosado capa. The smoke starts with a kick of pepper then rounds out to a subtle sweetness. Though widths vary, each Concert vitola is 5½-inches long. Order some of these melodic masterpieces now.
As I pulled this stick out of my humidor which it had been sitting in for 3+ weeks @ 68% humidity and took it out of the cellophane, I noticed that it was very solid and tight. The cellophane also had a slightly brownish tint to it. Has a really great smell to it. More mellow than I would expect with a wrapper this dark. Toasted the foot and lit this tasty cigar. Immediately I was surprised at how good it tasted. The first 1/3 was a little harder to draw than the rest of the smoke. After that, it drew better and tasted better. As it passed the 1/2 way point, the wrapper started to crack and flake... I was being very careful but it just kept cracking. It was still smoke able but the wrapper was really thin. Thinner than normal. It didn t burn the best either. I got 2 of these in a CAO sampler and I am wondering if the other will react the same. I was smoking outside in the shade and it was 71 degrees. None of my other cigars have ever done this and I hope my second one is constructed better because this cigar tastes great!!
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
Got one free with my order.Smoked it next day.Taste,draw,burn,construction,was excellent.Will try a box.
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.
