Good smoke
Good smoke. Nice full bodied cigar. Not a whole lot of flavor, but nice. The flavor and burn was consistent throughout. Have not been a big fan of CAO but this one might be a game changer for this brand. It is worth a smoke try for those in doubt.

CAO Extreme
I absolutely enjoyed this stick! Good burn to the end. I'd admit, I had to light it a few times but the flavor was impeccable.

Not the worst cigar, but not worth purchase. See if you can find a sampler mix bag
I was given two of these cigars from a friend, and i must say these are nothing special. Dark and bland with a poor draw, and the burn was uneven. I'm glad these were a gift i would not buy them. That being said I will give the other one to a guest.

CAO Extreme Belicoso
Nothing exceptional to say about this stick. Started out very harsh with no notable notes. Burned hot and uneven. Won't buy them again. SR Phx Az

I've found the perfect smoke for me.The smoke has been consistenly good from beginning to end.If you enjoy a full bodied cigar that you can smoke all the way to the nub suggest you give it a try.

It's C.A.O....need I say more?
Although the Brazilia Gol is my favorite of the CAO line, with the Italia running a close 2nd, I gotta say, this is pretty damn good. Excellent flavor, rich, but not overpowering, a bit of a burn issue, but my humidor had a leak and several others of different brands also had burn trouble, so for now, I'll put it down to that. It got a little bitter toward the last couple of inches, but many do that and I don't usually smoke them down to my fingertips, so...... Can't really find anything bad to say about this. All around good stick that I'd recommend to anyone wanting a medium/full cigar.

Extreme Excitement!!!
I have been smoking cigars of roughly 12 years now. Back in '03 when I first started smoking I came upon a CAO Extreme Panatela and fell in love. I was so excited to see that CAO had re-launched the Extreme line. This cigar is as good if not better than I remember. The construction is Grade A; the burn is even and draw is effortless. The oily wrapper is superb to the touch and the flavors are complex. I know now why I fell in love with this cigar as a beginner; not many get five (5) stars from me, but the few that have are part of the CAO line and Extreme started out and remains one of my favorites

This may be my new favorite cigar. CAO continue to separate themselves from the pack by consistently delivering knockout products. I was celebrating starting grad school the other day, and I lit one of these up. Now I'm thinking that I might keep one of these around to celebrate graduation in a few years, like a carrot on a stick.
Customer Testimonials
Let me start off by saying I'm a big fan of CAO, but this stick dissapoints me. Three of the cigars I've had wouldn't burn due to giant stems. The ones that have burnt well I'd call a medium at best with good flavors until the last couple inches.
Excellent cigar. Reminds me of a Punch Bareknuckle, but maybe even better. Can't go wrong here gents!
A very good rich smoke; a great after dinner cigar.
Does not taste as full bodied as the Brazilias I have recently been smoking, but another great offering by CAO at a reasonable price. Not a big fan of full length wrappers, but no complaints otherwise.
I bought the "Legal Limit 18-Cigar Sampler III" wanting to expand my pallet into the Full strength cigars and thought I'd write a review from a novice's point of view. Great smoke! The "Extreme"(Robusto) is exactly that! It is very heady, dark & rich, a little spicy, BUT amazingly smooth and full of flavor! I must be a light weight because I caught and maintained a buzz the entire smoke. Can't wait to smoke my second "Extreme" (two in sampler)
What can I say, I have yet to meet a CAO cigar I didn't love and these “Extremes” are no exception!!!! Great flavor!!
I don't normally take the time to write reviews but felt the need to after enjoying this cigar. I must say I have been holding out for CAO to come out with a line that impressed the way they did years ago. I haven't been a fan of some of their recent lines lately but the CAO Extreme has made me a fan again. I have read mixed reviews about this cigar but decided to jump all in and order a box with hope. I was not disappointed and you will not be either. I will continue to keep a stock of these in my humidor. Of course everyone has different preferences so take this recommendation as you see fit.
Don't hesitate, buy this! Great flavor and great burn. Another excellent cigar from CAO!
I like a well built strong cigar. Nothing too much to ask but nowadays seems ard to find for a reasonable price. The last batch of MOW Ruination didnt do it for me do I bought a five pack of CAO extreme. Got them 2 days ago smoked 2 straight off the truck. Why put them in the humi now? Great construction, firm densely packed, wrapper hold together, taste is strong but not bitter, plumes of white smoke. I stopped half way through made guacamole, came back and it was still burning, I haven't smoked a cigar till it burnt my fingers for 2+ years but this one has both times. My advice dont waste 5 bucks shipping on 5 sticks, buy a few boxes.
Got this one in a sampler. A fine smoke. Smooth. Great draw. Would definitely recommend
Second best cigar in my humidor. Cubans included. I don't need the prestige of a name or cost to recognize what I really like. Full bodied - slow smoking -well made and flavorful beyond belief. I have smoked these sticks on separate occasions with; rum, rye and coffee. Each drink had another influence on the cigar. I highly recommend this cigar.You will not be disappointed.An little leather - coffee and citrus are prevalent. Excellent cigar at a poor mans price!
Rich, full and satisfying.
I'm smoking the Toro as of this writing. Thanks, Cigar of the Month Club for throwing this stick in. A truly great treat, although I'm not sure I would consider this a full bodied smoke (and I say that being more of regular mild-medium smoker). Right off the bat I got a delicious creamy cocoa smoke. The flavor is accompanied by semi-tight draw that insures an hour+ of smoking. Give this cigar a chance and you won't be disappointed. It's not my favorite cigar, as I prefer a smoother cooler draw, but damn is this good nonetheless. I wouldn't be ashamed to keep this in my humidor. Cheers!
The CAO Extreme is a very very good blend.... Great burn and awesome aroma. Folks trust me it's worth a try and you won't regret it!
I have been impressed with the CAO line for years. While looking for my favorite CAO cigars(Lx2), I saw the new CAO Extreme cigars. I have smoked several of these cigars and am pleasantly surprised! Great cigar!
Another great Cigarfest discovery. I enjoy CAO cigars and the Extreme lives up to the name. Very enjoyable smoke very robust.
Wonderful blend of tobaccos that lead to a mellow spice yet a bold flavor. The wrapper leaves a pleasant taste on your lips. The cigars are rolled to perfection and burn evenly! Highly recommended!
I'm enjoying a Churchill as I write this. Very nice, robust smoke at a reasonable price. Lots of deep flavors at the back of the palate. Leather is very apparent. Earth and nuts too. Great draw and burn line. Not over the top powerful, like Cain F series or Tatuaje Faustos. This is very pleasant. I'll get another box at some point. Would be great for someone that wants to step up to a full cigar without being overwhelmed.
Excellent cigar. Slow burning with thick bellowing aromatic smoke. There are different tastes at different stages of the cigar, from a heady spice, to mellow sweetness, to hints of nutmeg and cocoa. This is another hit by CAO and should add to it's portfolio of 90 rated cigars.
I bought this box a intial pricing for a song. I figured what the heck,I'll give it a try.And boy I'm glad I did. This new CAO is quick on power and flavorful from start to finish.The first nubber I've had in a while. Hints of black pepper,and chocolate towards the end,no burn issues.This cigar is flawless. Their best new cigar since the Sopranos series,and every bit as good as my all time favorite from CAO. The Brazilia. A must try.You won't regret it one bit.
Ordered a box of robusto's when CI had them on special. I'm a big fan of CAO cigars and this one didn't let me down. The construction was great, the burn was perfect and the flavor had a punch but not harsh. Very spicy. These will be on my regular rotation.
Got one of these beauties at cigarfest and it was the first one of the many cigars that i received that day. Great cigar. burned perfectly to the nub and tasted great. My humidor is a little full right now because of cigarfest but when i get some room i will definitely buy a box. Good job CAO
I have been a fan of CAO for nearly twenty years, so when I saw the Extreme on a weekend special I jumped right on it. GREAT cigar!!! Very much reminiscent of a Man O' War, (one of my favorite smokes) both in appearance and flavor. Do yourself a favor and try these while good deals are available. Even at MSRP would still be worth purchasing. Once again, GREAT cigar!
Robust in flavor and I like it.
