CAO Gold Maduro Corona premium cigars combine the smooth, buttery character of the bestselling CAO Gold cigar series with the rich, spicy and naturally sweet flavor of top-grade Maduro wrapper. Each CAO Gold Maduro cigar has a dark, oily Brazilian Maduro wrapper that caps a long-aged blend of Nicaraguan longfiller tobaccos. The result is a medium-bodied cigar with a luxuriously chewy texture as the smoke coats the palate with notes of spice and espresso on the finish. Another CAO masterpiece!
I just bought a box of these based on the ratings and being a natural skeptic, I was pleasantly surprised. It is a very smooth smoke from beginning to end, so far in my experience has been very consistent. A fairly mild taste with excellent flavor, a little tightly rolled, but makes for a very nice draw. A new favorite!0 0
Very Tasty and satisfied. However the shipping cost to Thailand is very expensive. I can get 2 boxes for that price :(0 0
Great smoke for the beginner. I've been smoking regularly for about 3 months. Cigars with a maduro wrapper appeal to me, but I don't have the mature pallet most "seasoned smokers" have to fully appreciate a full bodied smoke, so this would be the perfect in between. I often feel inferior when seeing reviews with terms like "spice" and "coffee"..."chocate", "pepper", but the flavors in this cigar are very distinct without being overbearing. A somewhat peppery start mellows at the first half. By the last third, the flavors really mellow, and becomes like a somewhat muted bitter chocolate/cocoa flavor. Spicey through the nose, throughout....The construction through the first 2 I've smoked in the box has been inconsistent (one with raised vains, one not quite a perfect cylinder), but not enough to be concerned with, as the burn was great. The draw is a little tight, but being a Corona, I may cut the next one just a bit farther up. But the upside of this is that it made for a fairly long smoke for a Corona. Less than an inch left on my 3rd over all smoke of the Gold Maduro, and very much satisfied. This cigar taught me much! Well worth the price for 20!0 0
Certainly not the 95 rating that it had when I bought a box. Burn & Construction very good. Taste was non-existent. Closer to a 90 rating0 0
