"Good Quick Smoke That Relaxs."
I purchased a tin of five just to try a CAO. The first thing that I notice when I started smoking was the draw, it was just great. The taste was smooth and flavorful just right for a quick smoke. I smoked it to the nub without having any peppery tastes. All in all I truly enjoyed the smoke. It s a good little cigar for what it is.

"Good and Simple"
Where these lack in in-your-face flavor, they make up for in pure, robust tobacco flavor. I'd recommend these to anyone who wants the simple tobacco experience in a high-quality short smoke.

I just finished lighting up and could not finish this cigar. I thought it tasted terrible! The smell was awful as well. My wife usually can handle the smell of my cigars. She almost lost her dinner over this one. I will not purchase any more of them in the future. I'm glad I only bought one tin. No thanks, you can keep them.

"Good, not great!"
I just finished a tin of 5 of the Karats and found that while exceptonally mild to my taste they lacked any significant flavor. The appearance, construction, draw and burn are all excellent, however I think the Criollo in the same size is a much better choice in terms of flavor.

"outstanding short, mild cigars"
If you are looking for a short and mild but excellent cigar look no further; the 38 ring makes it feel almost like a real cigar and the taste delivers substance.
