"Cigar of the Year"
When the Montecristo V was discontinued, I thought I'd
had my last great Cameroon. Sure, Fuente and Partagas are
OK, but the V was such a special smoke. Fortunately, CAO
has stepped into the breach with the Cx2. A truly beautiful
cigar, its almost a shame to burn it. The aroma *before* you
light it is good enough to eat. Perfectly smooth draw,
neither too loose nor tight. Stiff white ash, and an even burn
to the nub. Definitely to be smoked down to the nub. An
interesting melange of caramel and mocha flavor and aroma - the sort of
rich Cameroon fullness that many promise, but so few deliver.
A very special smoke; as much as I want to smoke them everyday,
I'm saving the rest for the special occasions that such
a work of art deserves.

These cigars are something else. The Cameroon Wrapper, & Binder REALLY make the Cameroon taste "POP". Flavor, construction, appearance.... this cigar has it all. These will be a staple in my rotation.
