CAO Gold Torpedo cigars are handmade with a mild to medium-bodied blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos and golden Ecuadorian wrappers. The smoke presents creamy textures of vanilla & nutmeg with notes of sweet spice. For newer smokers, this is a smart step up to a richer-tasting cigar. Try 5 first!

Draw top tight, wrapper tears with literally graze of a short male fingernail, and there is no development other than stronger wood flavor building into final third.
Decent, mild, would go good with straight tequila or whiskey IMO. less

I haven t had a bad CAO Gold yet. Every Gold I have smoked has been some of the very best handmade cigars I ve tried. The Conn wrapper is one of the creamiest and flawless ones I ve ever seen on any cigar.
This cigar is a little misleading though. It does have a mildness and creamy taste but under that hood sits a Nicarguan flavor bomb that pumps the nicoteen up a few notches.
The aroma is sweet cedar and new leather, with some pepper and spice lightly interlaced. The ash is snow white and will hold for more than 2 inche. This cigar has become one of my favorites! No draw problems ever.less

If you like mild cigars these folks make the very best. This one is a great smoke, good flavor, good draw, and great aroma. This is a good 30 minutes cigar. If you want a longer smoke try the double gold corona.less
