CAO Black

CAO’s first and finest

“The best cigar I’ve had, bar none.” I’m not exaggerating, I hear this over and over again from our customers. And I have to say I agree with them. You see, to many of us, the exclusive CAO Black cigar is CAO’s crown jewel, their piece de resistance. That’s a bold statement, considering CAO’s stable includes a number of exceptional cigars. You see, this blend was crafted with extensively aged, top-tier tobaccos, and each batch is made in limited quantities. 

Individually draped in cedar, this classic offers a ton of creamy spice flavors, with a subtle hint of vanilla along with an abundance of complex and varied, medium-bodied flavors. It booms out big, creamy rings, burns perfectly, and mellows nicely after the first third. Simply awesome. Just ask Cigar Buyer magazine, which awarded CAO Black with an unprecedented perfect score — 10 out of 10.

This is the best cigar I've smoked in years, possibly the best ever. Smooth, complex, not overpoweringly strong. In my opinion these guys are better than cigars I've smoked that are twice the price.

A decent smoke
I am a CAO fan. Loved the brand for many years. Got the Black Mosaic on sale and was excited to try a less bold model from their lineup. And less bold is the better description. Not the typical complex or well rounded smoke I’m used to. Very green smell and taste during the smoke. I’ve tried 4 now to make sure I give it a fair shake. The roll is good and draw is fine. Very uniform ash which I’ve come to expect. But overall a simple basic backyard smoke. Or good to giveaway to new smokers.

Tasted terrible
I’ve smoked quite a few cigars over the years, and I’ll be honest. This one tasted terrible. It smelled nice, rich and sweet, but basically tasted like cheap tobacco. Also, had to re-light it 3x. Smoked one right out of the box and let the rest sit for about 10 days in my 67% RH humidor, and it made no difference. The burn was terrible and so was the flavor. I have since given most of them away. Very disappointed.

I'm sure it's fine for a light bodied cigar, just not my style what so ever
As an avid maduro smoker these cigars just aren't for me. The draw was really nice that's why I have them 3 stars instead of two. It seems like a quality cigar for This type of but not for me. It had no flavor to me. If you like full bodied cigars this is not what you're after.

CAO Black - For what it's worth
This is a GREAT smoke. The cigar is mild, flavorful, and easy to enjoy. Displays different flavors on occasion, and a little more strength early on, yet finishes smoothly and very satisfying. Try some. You will LIKE them and may become one of your Go To smokes in the humidor!

If you like light cubans
Pre light aroma is sweet and hay like and the construction is primium. Start is an amazing buttery, creamy, tobacco Body is consistent although sweetness tapers off, beautiful light tobacco/coffee. Steady heavy smoke with a perfect flawless burn. Mmmmmmazing. Finish is mild with light pepper and the sweetness is still there. I was apprehensive about the description but my lord! I’m a regular in Canada and would swear I was smoking Cuban tobacco. Ordering more!

Not for me.
I didn't really like these. I bought them during a special. Nothing bad to say but just not for me. They burn well, draw well and produce a pretty nice white smoke. I am a more Maduro larger ring type of guy so this cigar is ok if I'm looking for a fast smoke and not looking to really sit and enjoy deep complex flavors in a cigar.

Love CAO, this one is mediocre. Partly my fault on this one, they are a smaller size and I didn't pay attention when purchasing. There are much better smokes from CAO in my opinion, such as the America.

Will continue buying
Great service, wonderful cigars, no complaints

CAO Mosaic
The Mosaic is a very good smoke.I tried one as soon as the pack arrived and found it to be smooth and spicy.It had a little bitterness on the finish,but a couple days in the humidor took care of that.It burns very even with a strong ash and an easy draw.It's a bit mild for my taste,but quite nice.I wonder why it's called black,as it looks like a connecticut.

Was 3 atar, but free ship... 4star
Nice, pleasant to the pallet, clean draw, well made, taking a cedar nap until the very moment of lighting it. Bit rough on the inhale, but pleasant puffing flavor. Notes of burnt coffee, and an earthy vanilla, gets rougher rather than "creamy" at last third. Overall well worth the money and well with free shipping.

CAO Black
Nothing special as you would might believe that CAO is a top notch cigar maker who makes a fine product. I am somewhat disappointed with the taste. Wrapper was perfect, not dry or cracked, but the taste just haunts you still after a few hours.

The cigars arrived stiff and
The cigars arrived stiff and in need of humidor time. This is not unusual for shipments from Cigar International in my opinion. The first cigar I smoked was fine although it confirmed that more time in the humidor was necessary for the rest of the batch.

A very good mild cigar
The CAO Black Frontier is a very good mild to medium cigar. I have purchased a number of them over the years and I always find that they are consistent in quality of construction and taste. They burn evenly and the taste stays good throughout the smoke.

I happen to like these cigars and think others will as well. However, I happen to think cigars are subjective, like your favorite drink or the way you take your coffee.. Because I like them, doesn't mean you will. These cigars seen to be well made, so give 'em a try. If you don't like them, send them to me, I'll smoke 'em.

By far one of the smoothest and creamiest cigars you can buy
By far one of the smoothest and creamiest cigars you can buy. I am a sucker for smooth and creamy cigars and this one fits the bill and then some. Notes of cream, a slight sweetness, cedar, and a mild leather, are some of the flavors to expect out of this stick. The construction like on most all CAO's is excellent and the only draw is....... well nothing. I am extremely interested in trying some of the Mosiac's (6.0x42) and am waiting for a good deal to arise on cbid. Get'em while you can boys you wont be disappointed.

A fine everyday cigar for the middle of the road to full smokers
This cigar was the one that sealed me in as a cigar guy. Hadn't smoked one for years and then this spring got myself another box and can't figure out why I hadn't done it earlier. Good smoke all the way through, has a nice bit of leather and pepper - just enough to let you know your smoking a good, stately cigar. Not for the mild hearted in my opinion.
5 out of 5
Good quality. Mild. My new favorite.
Just had my first smoke. What a delightful cigar. Burns even. Nice mild cigar with the right about of flavor. Very happy with my purchase. CAO always seems to hit the mark in construction quality. Not too tight. Not too soft. Flavor seem consistent all the way to the last inch. A little nicotine buzz.

GOOD TASTING CIGAR-BAD CONSTRUCTION
ALTHOUGH THE FLAVOR AND STRENGTH OF THIS CIGAR WAS GOOD, THE CONSTRUCTION WAS NOT. THE WRAPPER CAME APART AND CRACKS APPEARED ALL OVER THE CIGAR. i HAD TO CUT THE CAP END OFF ABOUT A THIRD OF THE WAY DOWN TO FINISH SMOKING IT. i WILL TRY ANOTHER BECAUSE OF THE TASTE, BUT IT MAY BE A WHILE.

Disappointing construction and taste
I found this cigar disappointing, plain and simple. Not a lot of flavor in that creamy smoke. It tasted to me like a weak-kneed Connecticut wrapper that would be acceptable on a very mild cigar but not one that was supposedly medium bodied. But it was the construction that ruined this smoke for me. The thin wrapper started by chipping away on the head after a few puffs - okay, I've smoked my share of cigars with a little binder being exposed. But by 40% through, the wrapper began flaking off for no reason at all and the cracking became so bad I gave up just past the halfway point. One of the worst constructed cigars I've smoked, it even made me check the humidity level in my humidor, which was good.
5 out of 5
Smooth and Satisfying
The CAO Black were on back-order for quite awhile but they are worth the wait. Nice smoke.
1 out of 5
Go with something else
Bad cigar from my favorite everyday cigar brand. I let these sit in my humidor for a month before trying one. It had a super tight draw and tasted like a gas station cigar. Half of them split at the torpedo end. Another week in a decided to give them another go. Again it was bad and half way it plugged so bad it was un smokeable. Frustrated i decided to disect one and found a very poor product.a super thin and brittle wrapper followed by more short filler than long. Ill try aging them some more but these are the worst cigars i have ever had. Dissapointing for a CAO...

CAO Black Gothic
Fine smoke with lotsa flavor. This particular stick smoked "Dry" even though it spent a week in my humidor @ 70% suggesting it may have been stored improperly before shipment or spent too much time on the UPS truck.

Not A Bad Cigar
After reading the rave reviews on this cigar from people like myself and the "Experts", I decided to give it a try. Preferably, I smoke Medium to Full cigars. My current favorites are Punch Bareknuckle ,RP Edge and San Lotano which I sometimes use as a gauge against other cigars. CAO Black was slightly lighter than a medium, which was not disappointing. The cigar was enjoyable with a semi-dry taste. Not too much complexity which is a minus for me. Construction wise it was just OK. Each time I guillotined one, it flaked and unraveled at the tip. Probably a good idea to keep them in a well maintained humidor a month prior to lighting up. Like I said I did enjoy this cigar.The manufacturer or CI needs to address the humidifying process.
5 out of 5
Smooth Smoke
I've been a CAO fan for a while. My preference is for the more full body cigars like the Brazilia or the Italia labels. The Black Storm cigar is a nice mellower smoke. If you like a lighter/medium cigar, than this is for you. I like it and will order this cigar again.

CAO Black Bengal
A very nice mild - medium cigar. It burns and draws very nicely and is consistent from batch to batch. Not overly complex, but has hinks of earth and pepper. Good stick for the golf course and you can't beat the price.

Nice Connecticut.
I've had the CAO Black before but it's been a while & didn't really remember if I liked it or not. Recently received a CAO sampler from CI which had two Blacks in it. I'm usually a Maduro only man. In fact the two that Came in the sampler were the only two Connecticuts in my humidor. I was a little hesitant to fire one up this Sunday evening since it was my first oppurtunity to have a smoke today. Had a hankering for a full flavored Maduro but opted for the Black and I must say I'm very, very pleased. Awesome flavors and stronger and fuller than I expected. Won't have any hesitations on the second one.

My overall favorite
I have tried probably 50 or 60 different types of cigars over the years. I was lucky enough to discover this one early on in my experiment phase. I enjoy many different types/brands/styles of cigars but I always go back to this one. As such this is one of the few cigars I always make room for in my box. I won't claim to be an expert and try to explain all the subtle flavors and such. What I will tell you is it's a damn good smoke and goes great with the amber liquid of your choosing.
