This may be my favorite cigar ever and I've smoked a LOT of cigars.
I was offered my first "CAO Black VR", and man was i impressed. The maduro was as sweet as one from Costa Rica. The construction was flawless and the burn was even. Big booming clouds of smoke. Peppery, slightly spicy some charcoal (or was that the steak?) and a sweetness that lingered. I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar. You will to. My taste rates it a solid 92. A truly excellent stick. Enjoy, happy holidays to all.
CAO Black VR: Excellent cigar. Plenty of strength without a single harsh moment. The flavour is as good as any Costa Rican maduro and the burn is absolutely even throughout. At a retail price of over $7, it isn't cheap (but who pays retail at CI, eh?) but it's worth every farthing. Excellent construction, perfect draw and ash. This is one to keep handy.
10 pack on sale .. took a chance bad weather here ... smoked too soon this soldier held its own ... with the wrapper in shreds .. still kicked it .. solid construction .. awsome presentation ... excellent taste ( lil harsh due to its condition upon arrival ) this was my first VR but I can tell this stick is awesome ... even under the worst of circumstances .. I look forward to seein how the rest fare after resting ... to the nub ... even in the badlands ... nuff said... fine is fine ... even under the worst conditions .. ;) ... will report later if the rest of them are bad ... but I can tell they wont be ... they will be 20 times awesome ...
Okay so I'm the third reviewer to go at this purchase blind; yet now I see the light! This cigar (CAO Black 'VR') is gorgeous asthetically with a thick silky black wrapper that taunts you to take a bite. I'm not a hint of this notes of that guy, but very balanced with good complexity with mostly medium character getting fuller without any bite past the mid-point. A flavor bomb and the aroma is incense for the herfers nose. CAO truly out did themselves with this one...amazing.
