great smoke, the peppery finish the burn.. All good for me!
My cousin and myself were told that CAO makes wonderful cigars by one of his friends. So we went to the smoke shop, picked up a couple of these, took them home and fired them up. For the price we paid ($9.00) for this cigar, we were both disappointed. However it wasn't a horrible smoke. The burn was uneven and even hard to stay lit. The taste wasn't bad, but certainly wasn't good in our opinions. All in all, it left us shrugging our shoulders and wondering why we paid the money for it.

I am pretty skeptical of products with snazzy wrappers and logos, however, this cigar left me with a perma-grin and chomping at the bit for more. I have smoked many premium cigars over the years, including top-notch Cubans in different parts of the world. The Brazilia got my attention, though. Well done, CAO! I ordered two boxes as soon as I was through smoking this gem.00
All around excellent stick. Smooth draw, slow burn, great smoke volume. Mild stick smokers might want to stay away, but for full body this is a 'must try'.00
So far this is the best that CAO has to offer in my opinion and it is indeed remarkable. The is a full flavored cigar but very enjoyable. The cigar burns very evenly and has a great aroma. I pick up typical maduro notes of coffee, some chocolate, but there s something else that almost reminds me of nutella. All of these notes work in perfect harmony so you wont be overwhelmed with any specific one. The samba burns great, good draw, the stick itself has a great taste even before lighting. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with this cigar and whenever I venture off to try something different I m almost always let down, simply because the Brazillia hangs towards the top of the pyramid in my book.00
There are better... there are worse... But we all have one that balances everything... flavor, burn, draw, price, looks. This is mine! I can't afford many boxes so I go for the most enjoyable when I can. GREAT SMOKE!00
This and the Lambada are 2 of my all time favorites. Smooth but rich Chocolate, Coffee flavors - just a touch of sweetness. Its addicting. Draw slow and steady on these to keep an even burn. Wrapper can peal towards the end if you huff and puff. Overall though - an extremely satisfying smoke.00
Great cigar! Burn was consistent as well as the great taste. Try one, you will not be disappointed.00
This is a go to smoke for me, one of my top 5. A solid 90+ across the board plus unlike the Gol I have never had a Samba fall apart.00
I got this at a recent dinner event in San Diego. Beautifully constructed, inviting fragrance, nice construction and above all - a consistent full bodied flavour down to the nub.00
