This is a great Camroon cigar for the price. It is a smooth, even burning, medium bodied cigar that does have the Nicaraguan "bite". I recommend it for beginners to seasoned cigar enthusiasts.

"Best in Taste for the price"
Yes I love this cigar. If your a cameroon lover and can't afford La Aroura Preferdios for everyday, this is the best you can get. I've smoked many of these and always have some in stock for that special event ( the end of the day) and would recommend these to all who have taste buds ( some reviews need to check with ENT doctors). So hey if you bought them and don;t like them call me and I'll take them.

The CAO Cx2 has been a great camaroon cigar. I suggest that some of the negative reviewers see an Ears, Nose and Throat Specialist. The cigar has great camaroon taste, draw is the best, taste is within my top 20. Guys, please whine some other place! I spent 10 years in Army SF, so please do not whine to me!

"Size does matter..."
I sit here enjoying one of my CX2 belicoso's as I write this and I have to tell you. Cigar size matters. I bought this box based on trying a CX2 robusto a friend shared with me. While I am still enjoying this cigar very much, I find the smaller robusto to have more flavor. All in all, you can't go wrong with these, but if you are going to try a box, buy the smaller robusto. He's hoping some humidor time will bring out more flavor. See you in the smoke bar.

"Not the best CAO I've had!"
Not the best CAO I've had. Not constructed well, the head collapsed easily and drew too freely. Tasted only OK. For the cost... a big dissappointment.

"One of the best I've had"
Fantasic smoke. Long burn with a good draw and mild taste. Good at the list price but better if you can pick them up on the auction. One of my favorites... right up there with monte #2 and perdermo champagne reserve. I highly recommend this smoke.

"Not what i expected in anyway"
When I purchased this cigar I purchased it due to the high ratings it received. In the end i was pretty disappointed, construction was good and all but the poor amount of smoke produced disappointed me. It is sad when i Macanudo Maduro cigarillo produces more smoke in one puff that this cigar does in three. This is a purchase i do not plan on making again.

I don't give many bad reviews. If I try a cigar and don't like it, I usually just forget about it. So you'll see my other glowing reviews here for Partagas, Oliva, Punch 'Rare Corojo', and several others including my favorite: Henry Clay. Well, the CAO Cx2 rates right up there at the top with the best of them, if not just a step higher. The double shot of Cameroon gives this cigar a taste like none other. And beyond that, the consturction (appearance, burn, draw, etc...) were near flawless. Had to puff a little harder to get a good draw on this size (Beli), but not too hard. The roll was firm, yet plenty yeilding to a good puff. It's a bit pricey (for my range, any way), so it won't likely make my daily rotation. But it's beyond a doubt worth every penny, and I might just work harder to convince myself I've earned the reward of a Cx2 at the end of the day!

"Must have gotten a skunk"
Got this in the commemorative sampler. The rest of the cigars were nice, mid range, decent burn cigars, but this was the biggest cut of them all and it was AWFUL. It tasted like the cheap Acid brand cigars without the flavor, the wrapper cracked when I cut it (much to my dismay) and started to unravel. A couple of people seem to like the Cx2, I definitely don't. The flavor was skunky, very burnt and very harsh not enjoyable in the least. About five puffs in I tossed it, cleared my palet , and reacquainted myself with one of my favorites, the Rocky Patel '92 Robusto.
