Cigar of the Week: CAO CX2 Toro
The CX2 Toro is a luscious candy bar of a smoke, brimming with sweetness, yet it packs a nice, full-flavored, yet medium-bodied punch from an all-Nicaraguan longfiller core. I also like the dimensions of this cigar. At 6″x 54 you get a lot for your money, plus the wider size offers excellent balance and creaminess. I usually pick up flavors of sweet wood, coffee, and a note of nutmeg in the mix.
Just about all the reviews on the CAO CX2 Toro are raves, too. If you love the naturally sweet flavor of top-grade Cameroon leaf and a little zing, check it out. It pairs up great with coffee, Tawny Port, or a good Single Malt Scotch, too.
