CAO Vision Catalyst
CAO Vision Catalyst cigars are rolled to an attractive Robusto shape with buttery, 4-year-aged Corojo wrappers that embrace a medium-bodied, full-flavored, blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan and Brazilian longfillers. The smoke is smooth and complex with flavors of cedar,leather, and cocoa. Try 5 now!
I bought a box and after the first one I was disappointed. Very tight draw, horrible burn. I figured well got 19 more to go...ha ha. Since then each vision has been great. Nice draw, even burn......love them so much bought another box. So you can't always judge a cigar based on a one time smoke.
In a recent review I blasted these for having a horribly uneven burn. Having jumped the gun a bit after smoking one that did have a horribly uneven burn, I must say, I do enjoy these cigars. They certainly don't burn even and require attention, but so far only one has been horribly uneven. I would never pay retail for these, but on sale they are worth a try. They just need to drop the plastic humi and lower the sale price a bit more.
Nice cigar, one of the best I've had for the money. The humidifier is not so great. CAO is one the better box designers I don't know what they were thinking with this one. The hydrometer will not calibrate. White/Plastic??
Bought a box recently when they were on sale, to my dismay they aged rather poorly albeit in proper conditions. These Vision's lost a lot of their complexity, creaminess, and spice in compare as to when they were still in production, the body mellowed from full to a flat medium, while the strength remains at medium-fuil (which is juxtaposition to what ought to occur).
