Made by hand in Nicaragua, the soothing CAO Gold cigar is blended from aged long leaves, including an exquisite wrapper made of Connecticut-seed Ecuadorian leaf, and Cuban-seed Nicaraguan filler and binder. Silky, medium-bodied flavor that's deep and complex. Handsomely packaged in great looking cedar chests.
My order of the CAO Gold Double Robusto was a disappointment. My first box of CAO Gold I bought years ago were the torpedoes and I have been hooked ever since. Just fine cigars all around. The Double Robusto is a different matter. I found great inconsistency in the quality of the construction and burn. The usual tightly rolled, easy draw, and razor edge burn was not there. The cigars had some very soft spots, an uneven burn, and at times a difficult draw. I'd guess that barely half of my purchase was acceptable. This was not enough for me to send them back, but enough to swear me off the Double Robusto. I'd like to stay with the brand, but will stick to torpedoes. Best, PM.

Perfect quick and mild smoke
Aug 12, 2015
These things are awesome! I much prefer a stronger more medium bodied smoke, but I'm currently working six 12-hour shifts a week which leaves me with very little time either during the day or the evening (coupled with school and dad duties) to get a good smoke in. Add in the incessent desert heat...and standing outside for an hour after an already long day becomes more than I'm willing to handle. These little smokes are the perfect compromise. They're mild, produce a good amount of smoke, have a light woody CAO flavor, and give you twenty minutes or so of smoke time. I'll be purchasing something more full bodied in the same size, but these have become a staple in my humidor.
