"This smoke defines mild"
I have never had a more mild ,smooth and flawless smoking experience. This smoke defines what mild is in a great cigar.. Way to go CAO!!!

"terrible draw, unsmokeable"
I usually like CAOs and probably have two or three different boxes in my humidor at the same time. These were unsmokeable. The draw was so bad, even after two months that I had to return them which was a hassle too. Famous Smoke's return policy is 30 days so don't wait. Get rid of these ASAP.

"Okay at best..."
The cigar was mild but had no defining characteristic to it. I prefer Baccarat and Gispert, which burned more evenly and had a sweeter taste. The CAO Gold robusto had poor construction especially towards the cap. It came apart a little more than half-way through the smoke.

Unsatisfying draw and flavor. Instead of enjoying it, you just think making your money worth.

First 1/4 average. Second 1/4 ok. Third very uneven burn. Had to burn off uneven part. Last 1/4 burn better, milder and good. Score 1-5 about a 2 1/2. I wouldn't rebuy. There are too many out there much better.

"Excellent-one of my favorites!!!"
I smoke other cigars but always manage to work in at least one CAO Gold each week. They are definitely high on my list of very good cigars.

"Nice mild cigar- good for anytime"
This is a nice mild cigar. Good to keep in the humidor for those odd times, or for the buddy who comes over and is not a regular smoker.

"Disappointed - Bitter and Green"
Being fond of CAO, I was disappointed with these. First cigar had a big swath of green running through the wrapper! And the taste of the cigars matches that greenness. Doesn't taste like the tobacco was aged at all. Too bitter. Burns uneven, as most CAO cigars tend to do. Could have fooled me into thinking this was a $1 bundle cigar.

"A great finish to the evening"
It was me, the evening stars, natures? music, and my CAO Gold Robusto. This was a great finish to a peaceful day. This CAO complimented the evenings end with its smooth mildly sweet and nutty flavor. The smoke was bit shallow leaving me wanting, but this was countered by its lingering enjoyable flavor. The draw was unobstructed and effortless. The burn was a bit distracting, I had to correct twice and relight once. But overall it was a pleasant smoke to recap the day and lead me to the nights end.
