CAO Criollo Pato cigars (pronounced, 'cree-O-yo') present the rich, sweet and authentic flavor of Cuban-seed Criollo tobaccos. Each cigar is deftly hand-wrapped in flawless, Criollo 98 leaves that surround robust Nicaraguan-grown, Cuban-seed tobaccos. A well-balanced, complex cigar with notes of walnuts and sweet spice reminiscent of the cigars made during Cuba's golden era. A truly outstanding cigar that hits on all cylinders. NEW PACKAGING NOTE: Boxes now feature a dark wood and leather exterior.
WOW!! I had the torpedo shaped criollo and it was so hard to smoke I didn't enjoy it. I decided to try a different shape. These sticks are great. Wonderfull flavor, great amount of smoke, solid construction, and a great burn. I found a close out deal on them at JR and bought the last two boxes they had for 40$ each. Felt like I was stealing. You can't go wrong with CAO. I plant to try the rest of the Crillo line to see if the other cigars smoke as well. I would like to find one thats a bit longer so i can enjoy a longer smoke.0 0
I just tried my first CAO Criollo Pato as part of a sampler. Within two puffs, I said to myself is this a "legal" cigar or a Cuban Partagas 8-9-8? Or a Cuban RyJ Exhibicion #4? I like my Fuente's, but Nicaragua seems to be producing cigars closer to the Cubans I like. This is even better than my Padrons. This is worth every penny of the $3.00 I spent for it at Famous and a whole lot more!0 0
This is a very strong cigar, not for people who are new to smoking cigars, as it made mine light headed, but great flavor and very well made.0 0
