Eileen's Dream Cigarillos 5/10
CAO Eileen's Dream flavored cigar is a combination of Irish Cream and white chocolate truffle flavors, infused into a cigar with a Grade One Cameroon wrapper and mild Dominican fillers.
I ve been smoking these for years! The flavors are phenomenal, not just because of the Irish creme, but the tobacco has a great taste. The burn is *usually* perfect, but once in a while, you get one that burns more on the top or the bottom. The draw is great 90% of the time, but occasionally one pops up that was rolled too tightly. Overall, despite an occasional dud, these cigarillos are my personal favorite. They are a mainstay in my humidor, and I couldn t recommend them highly enough!
My girlfriend stopped by a cigar shop to assemble a birthday package for me. Among the gifts were several cigars, the CAO Eileen's Dream cigarillo included. The merchant told her I might like this one the least, compared to higher priced, larger ring sized cigars.These were my favourites of all and if they were more readily available, would always be in my possesion.It has a mild, rich flavour but by no means weak.
I truly enjoyed this smoke. I tasted every bit of the Irish Cream flavour all the way to the end and enjoyed the smooth draw filling out my mouth with bursts of flavour. This would be a great after dessert cigar - it would compliment a nice coffee while relaxing. Great job CAO.
Eileen's Dream first lets the smoker know he is on for a treat when the wrapper comes off. The aroma is not hard, but smells of Irish Cream mixed with a good cigar. I wish every cigar could smell half as good. As for the smoke, still pretty decent. Draw slow for the best flavor. It burned evenly and ashed well. I will definitely keep these in the humidor.
