This is PURE JOY! My goodness what a cigar, CAO has never let me down. Before lighting this it smells so sweet and then after lighting it it is sweet nectar, slightly spicy in the middle then back comes the sweetness at the end. Perfect burn, draw and goes right to the nub. Must try if this is your style. When people say I could eat that stick this is one of them!
I got one of these as part of a sampler at a local cigar event. I really enjoyed it. It had one of the oiliest wrappers that I ve seen on a cigar and had a wonderful chewy texture at the foot. Apparently these are made old school in circular pilons which is rare nowadays due to the extra time and cost needed to cure the tobacco. All I can say is it produces a wonderful flavor, nice amount of smoke, and solid burn...especially for the price! I will be buying more of these.
This cigar has a great taste on the lips and in the smoke. Very full. It was a little light on the draw for me, but the more I smoked it the more I liked it. I liked it enough to go online and see how much it would be to buy some more. Which I am going to do. For the price I see, it s exceptional. Goes great with whiskey.
I trust CAO to make good cigars. This Pilon is a new brand to me so I bought a box of robusto size and am writing this review after smoking nearly all of them. I found them to be mild with a nice consistent burn. The oily brown wrapper didn t overpower the cigar and kept it mild. I noticed some reviews gave it a more bolder taste. The box I had was definitely mild but in a good way. Good cigar to enjoy alone, with others or with a beverage with flavor that you want to enjoy. Keep them under $100 and I ll smoke them again.
