"Really enjoyed this cigar!"
This cigar was an absolute winner! I enjoyed this cigar with a glass of Dona Antonia Reserva port after a T-Bone steak dinner. This Criollo was my first CAO cigar and it did not dissapoint. I cannot wait to sample the the other cigars in the CAO lineup. The Criollo is a very close cousin to some of the better Cubans that I have enjoyed (being Canadian I can do so regularly) and if you gave me my choice I would take the Criollo all week long and twice on Sunday:)

"A great substitute for a real Cuban cigar!"
I recently was on a trip and had a chance to smoke some real Cuban cigars. This cigar really brought back the memories of the real Cuban cigars I was lucky enough to have.
Solid construction. Good draw. Nice aroma. Smooth, yet full-bodied...all the way to the nub! No bitter after taste.
It leaves wanting more! I am truly spoiled now, since having this cigar. I honestly rank this cigar 10/10! Goes great with a Hacker Pschorr beer.

"A nice even burn with a complex flavor package."
Full bodied and not for those with mild tastes. A good after dinner cigar with a glass of port or brandy to balance the flavor. I am ordering a box.

"Wonderful aroma !!"
I first tried this cigar at a big smoke in Chicago and fell in love with it then . I reciently purchased a box of the Bomba size . I have smoked them on a golf trip in Myrtle beach , a trip to Las Vegas , and at gatherings of friends . The one universal comment I have heard from smokers and non smokers alike is , " That cigar smells really great !"

Always wanted to try these as they are one of the best looking smokes to my eye. They're twice the price of what I'd like pay for a stick but I was not disappointed. Great quality smoke, complex flavors, long burn. I have found a new fav for special occasions.

I really enjoyed this cigar! The burn was nice and even in everyone that I purchased. It's a really good late morning, early afternoon smoke. This is one of the few that my wife says she likes the smell of. If someone is looking for an easy stick, then this is the one to go with.

"BADA BING BADA BOOMBA"
SOME PEOPLE SAY ITS A WASTE TO SMOKE A TOP RATED CIGAR AT A POKER GAME. I SAY BULL. THATS WHEN IM MOST RELAXED WITH MY GUMBAS,A GOOD GLASS OF VINO ROSA,AND A FANTASTIC TRIO OF SMOKES. MY SMOKING GUMBA PORTUGUEE MIKE BUSTED OUT WITH THE BOMBA TO FINISH OFF THE EVENING. THE ASH WAS WHITE,DRAW WAS NICE,AND THE FLAVOR,OH THE FLAVOR,FORGET ABOUT IT.(the trio was a hoyo seleccion royal CONDESA la aurora PREFERIDO #2 and the BOMBA)
