What exactly is a Session cigar? Well, if you like beer as much as we do here at the offices, you might have heard of a session beer. Session beers have a relatively low ABV but are packed with flavor, so you can enjoy them all day long without crossing over into ‘irresponsible drinking’ territory or waking up with a massive headache. That’s the idea behind Session by CAO, a session-style cigar with tons of flavor and a strength level that makes for an all-day puffer.
The blend features Dominican Piloto Cubano and Nicaraguan Esteli leaves for the filler, secured with a Dominican Vega Especial binder and a thick, toothy Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. These sticks are definitely full-flavored, but medium bodied without a whole lot of pepper and without a hint of harshness. The flavors of cinnamon, earth, nuts, and chocolate work in perfect balance resulting in a stick you’ll never think twice before lighting up, no matter what time of day it is. Grab a box and have a session whenever the mood strikes.
The CAO Session has been awarded a well-deserved 90-point rating, noting "There's a stark contrast between the white ash of this cigar and the dark wrapper. It's a sweet and spicy smoke that shows elements of red pepper and leather along with hints of chocolate, raisins and vanilla."
Smooth and full body flavors of sweet coco. Nice with a stout or bourbon. A go-to smoke.

Having my first one of these while I write this review. This is one of my new favorite cigars. Love this smoke! Looks like it would be a lot stronger than it is. Fantastic medium smoke and pairs nicely with a glass of Maker's Mark. Thank you CAO for this awesome cigar!
