CAO Extreme Ain’t Messing Around
Some say never judge a book by its cover. Solid advice, most time, but today I say eff that noise. Extreme delivers exactly what you’d expect from first glance — a cigar built upon complexity, and power. CAO is the keeper of the over a dozen different 90+ rated brands, and over 50 unique 90+ ratings. Rest assured, Extreme fits right in with the rest of the CAO family.
It all begins with a dark and oily Ecuador Habano ligero wrapper, which graces a rich and spicy Nicaraguan binder. These tasty leaves conceal a robust combination of long-fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua, with a dash of La Estradas leaf in the mix. After significant post-roll aging, this eventful cocktail serves up a bouquet that’s rich and hearty throughout. Toast, charred oak, nuts, espresso and black pepper smack every last taste bud, and the strength is more than satisfying. Save this one for after a large meal, and you’re in for pure cigar nirvana.
