Good construction but a bitter Sweet taste that I don t really like it. The aroma was awful.
Decent but won t be my favorite
I like a light Connecticut as a morning smoke with coffee and these are a nice fit for that. The only thing I d nitpick on is the CAO labels. I know— who cares about the band? Well, I take it all into consideration and the CAO band just doesn t work well for me. Other than that, these are an easy choice.
This is by far one of the best cigars for me. Try some and find out what you think.
I have smoked these for years. If I want a smoke with my coffee in the morning or I want a smoke with a couple lagers at night it works very well. It s a milder smoke with some body and flavor. It s smooth, rich and somewhat creamy with a pleasant aroma. Consistent construction and draw and a good amount of smoke. For me the Robusto is the perfect size.
Great medium cigar
CAO gold is a smooth, flavorful morning smoke that pairs well with a Hazelnut coffee. Appearance is the first taste and this looks tasty. Draw is effortless which makes it a good morning smoke. I don’t want to fight with my cigars to start my day. I highly recommend this cigar for FNG smokers as well as sage aficionados!
Fantastic cigar. Got better the longer it went. 75 minutes of bliss .
First started smoking the Champagne 6 years ago. Always consistent draw, burn and taste.
Very good smoke. Smooth with an excellent draw and long ash. Definitely one of my go to cigars.
Person o champagne- nice toast and bread flavors complimented by pear and apple. Medium body, with a hint of pepper. Held ash to over 1 inch on first third. Heat increases as it enters the second third, right as the ash drops, with notes of pine nuts, and hickory. Fruits present drier, more caramelized. In the final third, pretty hot, but caramelized fruits are heavy on the palate. Overall pretty well balanced, last third is hot, but still good. Burned a little uneven, but not bad by any stretch.
Really have nothing negative to say about this smoke. Great construction, great taste, really softens up about a third of the way in. One of my new go to cigars.
