Good construction, razor sharp burn, no re lights, a lot of smoke. Fruity at first half, last half got a full taste of leather and harsh. Could not nub it. Maybe that's what a Cameroon is like? I don't care for them, but that's just me.

"New 'Go To' Stick!!!"
I bought a Cameroon sampler because it had a few I wanted to try but couldn't find locally. I had never heard of these and a great day came along and I wanted to fire one up. I grabbed one and went. After lighting this beast I noticed right away a nice easy draw with tons of smoke. I didn't have to work to get the flavor out of this beauty. All in all a great smoke. It's not an occasion smoke but definitely worth some relaxation time. Nice smoke, no worries.

"Not What I expected at all"
I was a big fan of Cusano Killer Cameroon maybe 10 years ago and wanted to try this blend. So when I saw the price down to $3 a stick (when you buy a box) I decided to give it a try. I don't know if it's the Criollo 98 binder or the Ligero and Piloto fillers but this cigar will NOT be on my repeat list. Glad I tried it but I won't be going back for any more. The cigar was well made but the taste really disappointed me, didn't even taste like a cameroon at all. I'll stick to CAO CX2 as long as I can still get them (I only wish they would make a CX3)I prefer to smoke mainly cameroon cigars and as far as this cigar goes I completely agree with Rick from Riverside CA. If you're a cameroon fan like I am don't waste your time or money on this cigar.

I sampled this cigar because I favor the Medium Camaroon variety. It exceeded my expectations!

"Not a good taste"
This was not a good tasting cigar. The build was great, nice and firm with an even draw, the wrapper was a fine example of a rich Cameroon, but the overall palate was bitter and harsh, the aroma was unappealing, and the aftertaste was sour. Preference for taste varies greatly from person to person, but I cannot recommend this cigar at any price.

"Could be my new favorite."
This may be my new favorite in an evening cigar. I bought a box of them and have smoked three so far. It is a cigar of moderate strength, yet is is still smooth. After smoking Cusano Corojo 97 as my go to evening smoke, I may have found a more satisfying smoke; only time will tell.

Very good from start to end, nice smooth draw, very good burn, with good medium earthy, slight nuttiness and coffee flavors. I will buy again for sure.
