Designed for the 'seasoned' cigar smoker, CAO Mx2 Box Press 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 came to this cigar from Camacho?s Triple Maduro. In comparison this cigar had the best draw of any cigar I?ve ever smoked. It?s flavor wasn?t as bold as the Camacho, but was amazing non the less. It also wasn?t as strong as the Camacho which may be better for those interested in traditional maduro flavors, but don?t want to fall over after a single cigar like the Camacho Triple maduro. It had a perfect appearance and burned very well for a box pressed cigar. It?s the first cigar in awhile I nearly burned my mustache on from smoking it to the nub. I think this cigar is certainly worth purchasing and hopefully if you do decide to buy some you like them as much as I do.
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.
