I was not fan of the CAO line (tried Brazilia and Gold), but these I definitely find appealing. Very easy draw, smooth taste, and a lingering finish. Great color to the cigar. Some trouble with the wrapper as it nears the end on last two I had, but still fine.

"Well Made Nicaraguan Smoke"
This is a very well made and nice looking cigar, but I just can't get past the odd, earthy aftertase that comes along with Nicaraguan cigars. If you like full bodied Nicaraguans, you'll probably like this.

Great burn, wrapper darker than the skin. Easy drawin' stays lit, doesn't blister. Kind of spicy, very smooth and aromatic smoke. Delicious, better than the Brazilia. Definitely a keeper and will buy a box again!

"Nothing Special"
Very strong. Good burn and draw - not much flavor.

"Another good smoke by CAO."
Very nice shape and construction on this figurado. Nice, dark, oily wrapper. Decent draw and burn. VERY spicy complex tastes but not unpleasant. Definitely a full to strong flavored cigar. I will certainly buy more of these!
