Enter CAO Lx2 (ligero times two). Ligero represents the highest priming on a tobacco plant. Since this portion of the plant receives the most sunlight, it produces a dark and thick leaf that's loaded with flavor, strength, and spice. CAO Lx2 utilizes a bold mixture of 100% ligeros, including a dark and oily Nicaraguan wrapper cloaking a robust recipe of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. Extensively aged and expertly blended, the Lx2 dishes out an exceedingly flavorful bouquet layered with rich spices tamed by sweet, earthy nuances. While full-bodied in nature, the cigar is supremely balanced, completing a satisfying experience delivered in a smooth, methodical fashion.<br><br>
The Lx2 became the 11th (!!) cigar from CAO to receive a rating of '90' or better, thanks to a lovely 91-point score which noted: "A dark, solidly rolled cigar. The draw gives some resistance but, after savory first puffs, layers the palate with leather and coffee bean notes that usher in sweetness."
