Being a fan of the CAO Brazilia, I couldn't help but notice that there was a wise buy comparing the final Blend to the CAO. I bought a five pack of these and rested them for a few weeks. You know what? It's pretty darn close and a great cigar upon itself. If both cigars show up on cigar monster, I will probably buy these and spend half as much compared to the CAO for just as good flavor and strength. Definitely try some if you haven't!

At first glance I thought for sure that I was in for a bad time with this cigar. It was mottled and had at least 3 patches in the wrapper that I could see. The first third was very nice, with abundant amounts of smoke and a nice sweetness. The second third brought in nice notes of leather and a bit of the sweetness. The final act was an alternating symphony of leather and nutty flavors. The ash was almost pure white, with the first 1 1/2" holding on tight. After the initial ash, though, the cigar became a flaky mess. Definitely an outside smoke. I wanted to not like this cigar, but the blend was SO enjoyable. I'm going back for a 5 pack to see if the construction problems were just a one cigar issue. Cheers!

Enjoyable and really smooth. I had 1 from a sampler and it was the best of the bunch. Also the 1 I saved for last so it was in humidor for 2 months. May have to age some more of these.

"My New Favorite?"
My Final Blend came in a 5 pack sampler I purchased recently and all I can say is wow! This blend warrants a box purchase in the near future. Still a novice with premium cigars, I found this cigar to be great from first light down to the nub. And for the first time I detected some of these flavors so many write about. The finish was great with a touch of cocoa/coffee. I hope Famous puts these on sale sometime soon!

I really enjoyed this cigar. Nice full flavored smoke right down to the end with a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I received this cigar in a Famous Smoke assorted bundle, but wouldn't hesitate buying a box.

"Excellent, construction, burn and what flavor!"
The first thing I noticed was the solid construction of this cigar. It feels like a well made cigar. The aroma is fantastic before you light it so you know what is in store when you fire it up. No disappointment, never overpowering from start to burnt fingers. What a joy to smoke.
