Designed for the 'seasoned' cigar smoker, CAO MX2 Box Press 5 Pack premium cigars (Maduro times 2) use TWO aged Maduro wrappers with a rich, complex and seductively smooth blend that combines the best tobaccos from six different countries. The outer wrapper is a well-fermented Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro, while the inner wrapper (the binder) is a zesty Brazilian Maduro leaf. They surround a sweet and spicy mix of exquisite tobaccos from Nicaragua, Honduras, Peru and the Dominican Republic. One of CAO's BEST!
Being a rookie the cigar world, I've tried many brands, lengths, and strengths. The box pressed CAO MX2 double maduro, is one of my favorites. I've read about burn issues, and the wrapper breaking up, but I've not experienced any of this in the ones I've smoked. The taste was consistent and the smoke was enjoyable. Im done shopping around, I've found my cigar of choice.
I am a huge CAO fan, for many reasons really, but the MX2 is definitely one of them. I've smoked a few different sizes of these: the massive toro, many tins of the daggers, and yes this box-pressed version. I thought the box press was one of the best smoking versions of this cigar. The flavor is deep, dark, and elegant. In my opinion the box-pressed shape is not the best an even cigar burn...but it is fine. If you like a dark maduro cigar you must try one of these! They won't break your bank like the Camacho triple maduro.
The only cigar I have found that gives me everything I'm looking for in a cigar. Flavor, burn, taste, and most importantly draw.
I just finished my first of the box pressed MX2. The first half of this cigar was great. A dark chocolatey and creamy smoke. The second half was still good but began to burn uneven and a mild tunnel at the end. A great smoke but I was slightly disappointed that I didn't get to take it down to a nub because of the burn.
