First introduced in 1999 and have received ratings as high as '92,' which is why these box-pressed cigars from Nicaragua are sure to satisfy the full-flavor-loving palate. The vintage Cameroon wrappers perfectly complement the rich Nicaraguan filler and binder for a taste that's been described as 'smooth from start to finish with complex flavors and an equally complex aroma with scents of cocoa, coffee bean, and cedar.>/p>

I got a couple of these in a sample, since I am a faithful CAO smoker of the Brazilia Line, I wanted to expand my palette. This cigar did NOT disappoint. From the moment I lit this up to the very end. it was a very enjoyable smoke. Great draw, smooth flavor and palatable aroma. I ll be getting more of these in the future.
I bought a box of these cigars a few weeks ago, they were my favorite cigar back when they had the old gold bands, I still have a few of those left. But I ve smoked three cigars out of the new box with the fancy band, Two had a really bad draw, you couldnt smoke those. the third cigar started off perfect for the first inch and a half then started tunneling in a terrible way. I have always loved these cigars and had perfect luck up until now. Has anyone else experienced a problem like this???
The smoothest, most consistant stick I use.
I had not had this particular CAO cigar yet. It is quite simply amazing. Both the freshness and the timely manner in which it was delivered was outstanding I will be ordering more.
It looks like this cigar replaced the excellent CAO CX2.A great everyday smoke. Smooth, medium profile and great CAO burn.
I smoked my first CAO Cameroon this morning with my coffee and it was an excellent start to the day! I had this in the belicoso. It began a little tight on the draw and a bit light on the smoke but by a quarter into it both issues were gone. It was worth the wait. This cigar had all the typical mild sweetness of a Cameroon wrapper. An excellent cigar considering its quality to price ratio. I think it usually scores around 90-91 to the experts but I wouldn?t mind seeing it scored 2 to 3 points higher. It would be well deserved for the CAO Cameroon.
A favorite, a smooth flavorful smoke through finish
Nice, smooth flavorful smoke
This has been one of my favorites for years. Smooth flavor, burns nicely, and reasonably priced. I smoke one every second or third cigar session.
