CAO L'Anniversaire Maduro

The top of the line from CAO, this beautiful Nicaraguan maduro is making people forget all about Cuban cigars.

The CAO L’Aniversaire cigar was developed in the honor of the anniversary of the CAO brand. This all-maduro line is offered with a medium-to-full body and exquisite construction. It regularly scores in the 90s, and was rated the 8th best cigar in the world for 1998 by Cigar Aficionado’s Insider. Now hand-rolled by the new CAO Fabrica De Tabacos in Nicaragua. The incredible success of this cigar has launched two additions to the L'Anniversaire line, the Cameroon and eXtreme.

Friday night smoke!
A box pressed toro with a larger ring size than the robusto giving it a nice draw and even burn right to the nub. This is a tasty maduro that you will enjoy without the 'boutique' price.

Great, Classic Maduro
CAO L'anniversaire Maduro was the first maduro I ever had back when I started smoking cigars around 5 years ago. It still is my favorite. Smooth to the core. Beautiful, rich flavors and aroma. The standard of maduros and for a great price. It's great expanding your pallet with different tastes, strengths and flavors, but it's also good to feel at home and that's how it is with the CAO L'Anniversaire Maduro. An easy 5 stars.

A great Stick
The CAO L'Anniversaire Maduro is one of my favorite sticks from the CAO line. It's awesome. FUN FACT: On the show The Soprano's, Tony is seen many time's lighting up one of these sticks.

CAO's L'Anniversaire Maduro is the TOP DOG !
This is my favorite CAO ! I have smoked them for years since getting one as a sample at a cigar fest in Atlantic City. My friend and I received one each from the CAO booth and I was hooked. Wonderful flavor. All of my cigar smoking friends like it too. Perfect size and shape !

A note about the condition...
I thought this deserved a note to you at CI. The last three boxes that I purchased ALL had minor/severe damage to the shoulders and head. The wrapper was cracked from the band to the cap, as if they were dropped or somehow received blunt-force-trauma. Jerry P.

Good Deal
I have been going to Cigars International for years now. They offer an amazing selection of cigars at some of the best prices I have seen. They have a user friendly web site and great customer service. The only drawback to using an online company is that I don't get to feel and smell the cigars like I can in a physical store. Cigars International acknowledges this and offers a full refund of purchase if you do not like the cigars you have purchased. Even after you have smoked one or two. That is almost unheard of. Cigars International gets two thumbs way up from me.

Outstanding Cigar!
I will say that this is one of my top five daily cigars to enjoy. Also, by purchasing them from CI, the price, service and freebies make them that much sweeter. Rock On CI!!!
Customer Testimonials
The best cigar there is. There is no better.
I'm two years into being a newbie , but wow what a great cigar. I got one from a local retailer then got a box. Can't wait til they are delivered.
One of my favorite cigars. Decent price, great taste, good draw. Im a maduro fan and this is a great choice for anyone that is also. Ive enjoyed all shapes and sizes of this cigar. The only problem ive had is with my last box of toro. They seem to wanna try to unravel on me a little. Im sure its just the box that i recieved because ive never had this problem before. Also try any of of the other caos
Awesome smoke, one of my favorites!
an outstanding cigar from start to finish
Still one of my favorites. Good rich taste but not harsh. Good draw. Time to buy another box.
Very nice smoke. I would say more toward the full side of the "medium-full" scale. Burned evenly and never went out. Not a ton of smoke output, but adequate. I enjoyed this cigar very much and would purchase it again.
It took a few of these in a sampler pack to convince me that something was different. Now I have enjoyed my way through part of my first box and I am happy to say that this is the best medium maduro I have found yet. I don't rate cigars often as I have only been smoking them for a few years, but this cigar deserves mention. Sweet and complex flavors, yet full of rich medium strength. All have had a good draw and consistent burn, almost each one. Do yourself a favor and try this treat. I have smoked quite a few of CAO's cigars but this one is a real stand out.
I have been smoking cigars for over ten years. I have yet to smoke a Maduro cigar this good. My favorite cigar used to be a Graycliff 1666 till I had one of these!
Received a 5pk of belicosos about 2 wks ago- I have the same thought of everyone else. This cigar burns very well, very good taste , can't get enough of these! Smell was simply delicious before & after lighting,up! Will be ordering a bundle of these soon! One if the best smokes I've tried! Thank you
The CAO Maduro Belicoso is the cigar that taught me to love cigars. The draw, flavor, appearance, consistency..... it really takes you to school and demands respect. I usually buy a box a year and pick up a few sampler packs between refills. Recently, however, I bought a box of these only to discover there have been substantial changes. Downgrades if you will. All the exceptional is gone. Distinction is missing. The flavor has changed substantially and doesn't remind me of anything I'd want to remember. The draw is just normal. The construction isn't anything special anymore. Or, perhaps it's just this box and there is a major problem with consistency. Regardless, I fear the romance is gone... and I dare say this will be the last box I buy.
Awesome smoke! Probably my favorite. I would pick this over just about any other cigar. A must try!
For years people gave me cigars. I would try them and still did not understand what people saw in them. Then one day I was in a Cigar shop and noticed the CAO Maduro. It looked like it would be good. It was at this point I found out what others saw in cigars. Twelve years and countless maduros later, the CAO Maduro remains in my top 5 cigars. They remain outstanding in quality and most important, in taste.
I have smoked a lot of cigars from CI, but without a doubt the CAO Maduro Churchill is #1 ! It has a full-flavored, toasty sweet taste, burns perfectly and can be re-lit the next morning without a nasty bite. I love the Ashton VSG Maduro , but it's twice the price! I usually have one after dinner with a glass of Merlot or an Absolut Vodka Baybreeze. I'll smoke 2/3rds of it and have the last 1/3rd with my morning pot of green tea. Heaven !!! A happy CI shopper in NJ.
I usually prefer mild to medium cigars, but I tried one of these in a Churchill from a CAO sample pack and it was the best one. As soon as I finished it, I wanted another. I haven't any other cigar taste that good.
Very fine smoking experience. I've had these six months ago so when I seen them on Joe's daily deal, I purchased them. They were small but for ten cigars for about $30.00 are a deal. I remember one was around $15.00- I think they were 7"/48 or 42. If I look them up I could tell you. I enjoy them alot all the way to that nub. I've even insert a toothpick at the nub so my fingers won't burn. APPEARANCE 90, TASTE 89, CONSTRUCTION 89, QUALITY 89.25
I have finished my 4th box of 20 (CAO L’Anniversaire Maduro). It is by far may favorite cigar. I am always sad when the nub is so small that it burns my fingers and I must put it out. The flavor rises with each puff to a wonderful crescendo at the very end. They do canoe like a Mohican though.
Wonderful cigar (CAO L'Anniversaire Maduro). Beautiful construction, dead-even burn, firm ash, excellent draw and delightful flavour. This is another cigar that smells so good before you light it, it almost seems a pity to set fire to the thing. This one is certainly worthwhile.
The CAO L' Anniversaire Maduro, sweet, nutty, earthy, nice burn.....88.
My personal rating of this cigar (CAO L'Anniversaire Maduro) is as follows: Delicious from start to finish, right down to the nub. The flavor, the smoke and the feel is excellent. Although, I think the wrapper is quite delicate, and once the wrapper is torn it can be difficult to keep together. I will purchase again.
I recently ordered a 5-pack of these(CAO L'Anniversire Maduro) just to try something new, and was really impressed with the quality and flavor. It made my old favorite Partagas #10 seem harsh by comparison. Smoked the 6.8 inch Churchill right down to the nub!
The CAO maduro (CAO L''Anniversaire Maduro) is excellent. It starts of mild and builds in strength to a full finish. Excellent construction and flavor. It's my 2nd favorite maduro next to the Oliva "O" maduro.
