Enjoy four of CAO's hottest blends (each of which has been rated '90' or better) in a fantastic new size called the Cuban Press. Measuring 4.9"x50, this stout little vitola is box-pressed to perfection to deliver a bold concentration of flavor directly to the palate in an aggressive, but smooth and balanced fashion. Tasty blends in an intriguing new size and innovative packaging....this is a nice sampler.
The CAO Cuban Press includes: 3 - CAO Lx2 Cuban Press (4.9" x 50) 3 - CAO Mx2 Cuban Press (4.9" x 50) 3 - CAO Brazilia Cuban Press (4.9" x 50) 3 - CAO Italia Cuban Press (4.9" x 50)
“The CAO Cuban Press sampler is way better than "good". If you are a CAO fan, this is worth trying. The Italia, Brasilia, and LX2 are beauitful cigars in this format, taking on a distinctly different evolution from the other sizes I have tried. Compared to the Italia "Ciao", the box-press comes right out swinging, then tames a bit. Pretty much the same flavor profile, but I find the box-press to be a bit more potent tasting and showing a wee bit more spice. I would asy that the Brasilia has a similar change from the "Gol" size, but not quite as drastic as the change in the Italia. The LX2 is delicious and rich, a potent stick. I find the box-press format to lend to the strength of this smoke - all the way through, it seems to have a fuller flavor than the Robusto size that I have had. The MX2 is myleast favorite of this grouping, but it does carry classic maduro flavor. It also has quite a differnt profile, but to my taste it was not as complimentary as the other blends. In all, this is a worthwhile package, very enjoyable. And of course, excellent packaging typical of CAO!”
