CAO Gold Corona
5 1/2 x 42 - Natural - Single
CAO Gold Corona cigars are handmade with a mild to medium-bodied blend of rich Nicaraguan tobaccos and golden Ecuadorian wrappers. The smoke has creamy textures of vanilla & nutmeg with a delicate note of sweet spice. For newer smokers, this is a smart step up to a more flavorful cigar.
I've smoked 4-5 boxes of these. I bought the coronas because I really like the Karats but wanted more smoking time. I'm done with these. Yesterday, I threw two away. They burn, draw and taste great til you get about 1/3 through, and they just stop - it's like you hit a wad of asbestos - can't get any smoke and the taste heads south in a big way. The karats are great.
Not a great cigar but good if you have just began smoking. CAO offers better for the same price.
The CAO Gold Corona is a mild cigar. However, I found the draw very tight. I got tired from trying to take a puff on it. Not much creamy smoke until the last half and the wrapper started falling apart half way through. Somewhat poor construction and I finally gave up on it a bit over half way through. The flavor profile barely changed throughout the cigar. I don't see how these cigars get such a good rating.
