Disappointing construction and taste
I found this cigar disappointing, plain and simple. Not a lot of flavor in that creamy smoke. It tasted to me like a weak-kneed Connecticut wrapper that would be acceptable on a very mild cigar but not one that was supposedly medium bodied. But it was the construction that ruined this smoke for me. The thin wrapper started by chipping away on the head after a few puffs - okay, I've smoked my share of cigars with a little binder being exposed. But by 40% through, the wrapper began flaking off for no reason at all and the cracking became so bad I gave up just past the halfway point. One of the worst constructed cigars I've smoked, it even made me check the humidity level in my humidor, which was good.

Smooth and Satisfying
The CAO Black were on back-order for quite awhile but they are worth the wait. Nice smoke.

Go with something else
Bad cigar from my favorite everyday cigar brand. I let these sit in my humidor for a month before trying one. It had a super tight draw and tasted like a gas station cigar. Half of them split at the torpedo end. Another week in a decided to give them another go. Again it was bad and half way it plugged so bad it was un smokeable. Frustrated i decided to disect one and found a very poor product.a super thin and brittle wrapper followed by more short filler than long. Ill try aging them some more but these are the worst cigars i have ever had. Dissapointing for a CAO...

CAO Black Gothic
Fine smoke with lotsa flavor. This particular stick smoked "Dry" even though it spent a week in my humidor @ 70% suggesting it may have been stored improperly before shipment or spent too much time on the UPS truck.

This is one of my favorite cigars. Very flavorful on many levels, consistent flavor and construction, great price. Hard to find outside the CI family which is ok.......more for me! I always have at least one or two on hand.
