CAO Gold Maduro Corona
"Great Beginner Smoke"
Great smoke for the beginner. I've been smoking regularly for about 3 months. Cigars with a maduro wrapper appeal to me, but I don't have the mature pallet most "seasoned smokers" have to fully appreciate a full bodied smoke, so this would be the perfect in between. I often feel inferior when seeing reviews with terms like "spice" and "coffee"..."chocate", "pepper", but the flavors in this cigar are very distinct without being overbearing. A somewhat peppery start mellows at the first half. By the last third, the flavors really mellow, and becomes like a somewhat muted bitter chocolate/cocoa flavor. Spicey through the nose, throughout....The construction through the first 2 I've smoked in the box has been inconsistent (one with raised vains, one not quite a perfect cylinder), but not enough to be concerned with, as the burn was great. The draw is a little tight, but being a Corona, I may cut the next one just a bit farther up. But the upside of this is that it made for a fairly long smoke for a Corona. Less than an inch left on my 3rd over all smoke of the Gold Maduro, and very much satisfied. This cigar taught me much! Well worth the price for 20!

"Great Smoke"
Bought one of these from the local smoke shop. For the price one of the best smokes I have had. Recently got introduced to cigars and I have to say I love 'em. Burned perfectly all the way down. A bit spicy for my novice pallet, but great no the less.

"really nice maduro, great value"
Won six of these in an auction and they all have been great. The flavor has notes of espresso, spice, some hints of dark chocolate. I have had smooth draws on all of them, very nice to smoke. If your looking for a good dark smoke, you cant go wrong here

"Surprisingly good cigar for this price"
I bought this stick at my local cigar shop for testing. Did not expect it to be SO good. I almost burned my fingers smoking it down to the nub. The draw was a little tight and burn was uneven at the beginning but it fixed itself after the first half. Taste was great though, rich and mellow but never overpowering. I will buy this cigar again as a good everyday alternative to Padron and Arturo Fuente which I reserve for special occasions.

"Nice chocolate coffee"
There are dark semi sweet chocolate and coffee notes to the flavor. The burn had to be managed a few times, but that is why we carry lighters. I enjoyed all three of these that I had won on auction. The humidor did help to enhance the experience. I noticed that they got smoother each time. I will probably buy a larger ring size in this maduro cigar just to get that much more of the flavor. A 56 to 60 ring would be fantastic if they made it. Did you hear me CAO?

"The bad draw ruined the cigar"
The last third was great, but the first two-thirds wore me out trying to get any smoke out or it. I've tried 2 from the 5 pack and both were exactly the same. The taste was great but the bad draw ruined the experience.

CAO Gold Maduro Torpedo
The CAO Gold Maduro Torpedo is another outstanding offering from CAO. It seemed to last forever, had a near flawless burn, and perfect constucttion. The only downside was it was a little tight on the draw. Otherwise an excellent smoke.

CAO Gold Maduro Corona Gorda
One of my favorites. In same league as Torano Gold Exodus. Great tasting, consistent med bodied smoke. Occasionally one will need a minor touch-up while smoking. For the price you can't go wrong. Will take this maduro over a Fuente Reserve maduro any day.

"great cao"
First third was a hard draw, and pretty good taste. When I got into the 2nd third, the draw and ash straightened out, and the spice kicked in. I also started getting notes of espresso on the finish. This baby kept getting better as I got into the final third with heavy spice and espresso...I even got some dark chocolate notes. I smoked it to the nub and it was impressively smooth. I give it an 8.5.
