This is a wonderfull cigar. I have yet to find any thing close to it in taste.
I hope I just had a bad one. The only thing I was able to taste past the heavy tobacco was bitter bakers chocolate. I love a full bodied cigar and have been quite taken with Padron's, Perdomo's and even Sancho Panza's. This CAO just didn't do it for me. And I stress ME, maybe others will find it smokeable.
This cigar is excellent in every way. Great flavor, smoke, draw, construction..Best cigar I have had in a long time and I love maduros . Will have these in my humidor going forward.
So damn good I burnt my fingers on the nub...... Keep Brazillia's in the humidor at all times. This is a must have.
I have often noted others stating, "their go to cigar" - this is truely a "run to" cigar.
I am looking forward to watching a cage match between the Criollo & Brazilia to determine which I like better. The Brazilia looks great, smells great, smokes great! Though you do need a longer time to smoke this fine cigar, you will go out of your way to make the time to do so.
I am just getting started in the cigar world and trying different brands to find what I like. I started with a sampler from FS and found out quickly that I enjoy a fuller strength cigar with some great flavor. The reviews for the Brazilian encouraged me to try it and I was not disappointed. The draw was a little tighter than I would have liked, but the burn was the best I have had on a cigar so far. I am no flavor expert, but enjoyed the flavors alot. I want to smoke a cigar and still have a pleasant taste in my mouth an hour or two after. This could be my first box purchase.
I had prior purchased a CAO sampler. I knew the CAO name was great and trustworthy and I really enjoyed the sampler. I am very happy! This is now my favorite Cigar now! It is robust and hearty. I keep mine in the refrigerator because i like to keep them moist and cold. Brazilla Perfecto! Gotta get some more!
One of the finest cigars on the market. Consistent quality, full-bodied taste without being overpowering. Always have some in the humidor.
This is my favorite maduro cigar as well as being my favorite CAO stick. This is a full-bodied cigar, but has a really smooth taste. The maduro wrapper has an excellent dark color, and the band has a great contrast. This cigar has a complex taste with some coffee and earthy notes, but is blended perfectly to give a balanced taste throughout.
Bought this at our local shop thinking it would be just a ok cigar. WOW this is my new best friend!! What a awesome cigar, Great flavor good burn, and a good smell!! evan my kids said wow dad that smells good!!!! I will fill my humidor with this Awesome cigar!!!
Been smoking for a few years now and this by far is the best cigar I have smoked....Got a five pack, smoked one a week later, great. Smoked another about a week after that, just as good. Have smoked them all now and have not been disappointed at all. Ordered a box just now and will always keep these in the humi.
