"((( GREAT FLAVOR,,,NOT SO GREAT BURN )))"
The CAO Vision Catalyst, sports a nice, attractive, oily, chocolate colored wrapper, with some minor vains. The ash is loose, and the burn is somewhat off. The cigar needed to be relight a number of times, throughout the burn. Upon lighting the Catalyst, sweet creamy notes of fresh tobacco flood the pallet. Notes of creamed coffee, and almonds were noted in the nose. Throughout the second half of the burn, aromas of oak, and nuts, were present in the nose. On the third part of the burn, the smoke remained creamy, nutty, and woody. The CAO Catalyst is medium in body. The approximate burn time on this robusto, is 90 minutes. On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd rate this cigar 8.
Note-- opinion -- If the burn would have bin up-to-par,
I would have rated this cigar 10!!

"C on the cigars D- on the humidor"
When the cigars showed up to my house I had a little wave of excitement because people have been talking about how great CAO cigars are. Here to find out that they are just hyped up. The cigars a decent at most, and the humidor will NOT calibrate no matter what I do. Sorry CAO you lost me...

"Very Nice cigar, White Plastic box may be not?"
Nice cigar, one of the best I've had for the money. The humidifier is not so great. CAO is one the better box designers I don't know what they were thinking with this one. The hydrometer will not calibrate. White/Plastic??
