"Excellent flavor, wrapper and burn problems"
The wrapper is medium reddish brown and translucent, very thin and lightly veined. It has a wonderful pre-light aroma, damp and earthy. It lights evenly and easily, with a creamy almost malty aroma. But the binder was heavily veined and expanded along the veins, cracking the wrapper and causing a very shoddy, scraggly ash. There were runners which had to be corrected. But the flavor remained wonderful and was worth smoking to the nub.

I smoked this cigar and enjoyed it. So I bought a box. I was a disappointed in the wrapper,fell apart as I smoked it,but nice ash,good taste other than that I have enjoyed this smoke. I did solve some of the wrapper problem after putting the cigars in a humador for a couple of weeks. Over all about a 8 out of ten. However the box they come in is very COOL

"smooth, medium body, very flavorful, burns evenly."
One of the few cigars I buy by the box. Not CAO's best cigar - but VERY worth the money. I store these a few months usually and they take up a slight cedar aroma and smoke very smoothly. Haven't had a bad one yet.
