#Nowsmoking: CAO Amazon Basin Fuma Em Corda
#nowsmoking @famoussmokeshop: The CAO Amazon Basin Fuma Em Corda is a big, brawny cigar issuing notes of earth, wood, sweet spice, espresso, and a unique citrus tanginess.
Country of Origin: Honduran American Tabaco S.A. (Honduras)
Size: 6″ x 58
Wrapper: Honduran Colorado Oscuro
Filler: Dominican, Colombian, BrazilianBragança and Arapiraca
Dominant Flavors: Earth, cedar, espresso, sweet spice, lemon zest
Where it’s at: Note the braided tobacco leaf band, which is very unique, and which you can smoke through. A tart, pre-light cold draw results in creamy and very dense initial puffs with a peppery finish. The smoke is mostly earthy and woody in the early stages. A more pronounced woodiness with notes of sweet spice and a morsel of espresso follows. Some pepper remains on the cigar’s long finish. Later on, more cedar and sweetness arrive with a lemon zest-like tanginess and more espresso. Take a little extra time between puffs. Pair with coffee or Rum.
