CAO Brazilia

CAO Takes Over the World

Released after five meticulous years of research and planning, the CAO Brazilia is a full-flavored cigar made from one of the finest Brazilian wrapper leaves we’ve ever seen. It’s a fitting tribute to the country — for centuries, Brazil has been celebrated for its art, and its creation of all things beautiful. And Brazilia is most certainly beautiful. 

Extensively aged, the long-fillers here are all Nicaraguan tobaccos of the highest caliber. Though Brazilia performs well in every size, most notable here are the 54 to 60-ring options. The complexity offered from these wider vitolas keeps the cigars smooth, burning cool all the way down to the nub. In short, Brazilia is a classic blend, well worth your consideration.

In addition to numerous 90-ratings, Brazilia has an esteemed 91-rating, noting: “complex, with an earthy, floral flavor and a toasty, nutty quality. Full bodied, with a long, toasty finish.”

Best little cigar I've found
I had almost given up on finding a good-tasting, small cigar for when I don't have the time for a full size. As long as you take it easy with smoking them, they don't get too hot, and they are very flavorful!

One of my favorite smokes!

Don’t tell anyone about this amazing find
The big brother of these, the CAO Brazila Gol! is one of my favorite cigars. I was very surprised to try thes and find out they taste very close to the Gol! I used to like the Fuente Short Story for a quick 30-35 min cigar now I prefer these much more. Lot of flavor, bolder smoke and less money. If you like the Brazilia line from CAO then try these little gems. Well worth the price points. Med to full body in strength. Slightly sweet, cocoa, slight taste of licorice, has some spice, it’s smooth, just a great smoke. Definaty recommend.

Always a winner
I've enjoyed CAO Brazilla Gol for a long time, and my shipments from CI are always fresh and on time. These cigars accompanied my wife and I on Florida vacation recently, and they were a perfect end to each day with a fine singlemalt. If you haven't tried them, do yourself a favor and buy a 5 pack...you won't be disappointed.

Tasty but Wonky Wrapper
Great size, great deep coffee, and chocolate notes. The size is nice also. The burn and wrapper can at times be problematic but if you cut and light weel, and after some time in the humidor, you should be fine.

Good Flavor
This cigar is rated full flavor but I thought it was medium-full. It had flavors of nuts, dark toast and a hint of bitterness, which I liked. It was very flavorful but not harsh. Nice oily wrapper and a cool smoke in the 56 ring gauge. I smoked this to a nub, and it is a cigar I recommended to my friend. I will definitely buy again.

Excellant As Always
One of my favorite go to cigars. I work for the Fed's and after dealing with non-stop B.S. all day this is the highpoint of my day when I go out the door to go home. Nice even burn, wonderful flavor and perhaps has helped save more lives than CAO will ever know.

Just Okay for Me
Had this in my humidor since 12/14/17. These cigars look great, draw great, and burn nice and even. Based on the reviews, I had high hopes for this cigar. However, the taste was just okay for me. Initial taste on lighting was overwhelming pepper with a taste of hay. The pepper taste mellowed a little shortly after lighting, but no other tastes developed for me other than spice and hay during the first or second third. I became bored and put it down after that. I have four left and will revisit them in a couple of months.

Brazilia Go-ld
Put them in the humidor to rest for a couple weeks. Pulled the first one out to fire up and wow!! Just what this fine CAO needed. These are spectacular. Cream and graham with a healthy dose of aged tobacco taste. Good enough for special occasions or daily stick. Being a maduro lover this is how a maduro should taste and burn. Minor tending at the start of this burn but straightened out as it went. Burned several now, down to the nub. Used a Colibri V cutter to make sure it stayed lit. Excellent cigar for the money.

CAO Brazilia Gol
This has been one of my favorites, and I've been hooked since my first one 5 years ago. I now keep them on hand as the "house" cigar. The cigar is distinctly Nicaraguan, but the wrapper from Brazil is a unique twist. The smoke is full-bodied but not overpowering in strength. There is a complexity to the flavor that I really enjoy, and the 56 ring gauge robusto is the one I enjoy the most.
5 out of 5
CAO Brazilia
The Brazilia is a full-flavored cigar wrapped in a gorgeous oily dark leaf wrapper. Medium to full flavored. I highly recommend any CAO cigar and the Brazilia in particular.

A great smoke for any time of day or next night!
Whether with a cup of coffee to start the day or with a good bourbon to end the day, I’ve found the CAO Brazilia Gol to be an excellent smoke. The full, rich taste is a definite plus because Gol still maintains its medium-strength character. Excellent construction, a good tight wrap but with an easy draw and even burn whether you use a cutter or a punch. Gol is among the top 4-5 cigars I keep in the humidor on a regular basis. Get ‘em and smoke ‘em!

Every Day "go to" cigar
Purchased this and smoked it for about 3 years, almost daily. I find it consistently well made, at MY rating of an 8. provides a pleasant taste without being harsh or weak, so about a medium. And I give it an overall rating of a 90 because of the consistency of the blend, box after box, the wrap and taste. I find it not difficult to give one to a friend when they join me for a smoke because they have all agreed with my assessment.
5 out of 5
It’s my all time favorite
I love these cigars and always have them in my humidor. Although the Amazon are the ultimate.

What a great cigar!
I stumbled across the CAO brand in a CI sampler years ago. While I kinda liked them all...MX2, good, America, not so good, Italia, nice, Brazilia Gol fantastic. If I were a bit more wealthy they would be my daily smoke, rather than a special one. No, they're too good for a daily smoke!

I have smoked 3 of these so far. 2 of them the wrappers fell a part. I don't know if there is a problem with this batch or what. Normally I realy like the Cao products. Got a free sample pack with this order and I have had a problem with that wrapper as well.

Consistantly Good
The CAO Brazilia has been a favorite of mine for years. It is a full tasting smoke, but unlike many other full-bodied smokes the Brazilla is smooth with no bite or unwanted aftertaste. I recommend it highly for those looking for taste, but not burn.
5 out of 5
Brazila - consistently reliable
If you like an affordable Nicuaraga smoke with a sweet spot and a easy draw you can't go wrong with Brazila. Over the years I've smoked several boxes of different sizes and rarely had a dud. It is a creamy, mellow, and sweet smoke that never disappoints with a harsh or bitter finish - a true knuckle-burner.

A bit overpackaged. Box is heavier that needs be and takes a couple extra seconds to pull the cigars out of. But by far the biggest problem is that I'm almost out of them again. They are darker than they taste.

One of the best!
Without a doubt my favorite stick. Having tried numerous different brands and sticks this has been my cigar I compare everything to and it never disappoints. Just bought a 20 box with the ashtray upgrade and already looking forward to opening the box. To me this is an easy 95pt cigar especially for the price. A true hidden gem!

Highly Recommended
Cocoa with a slight sweetness and creamy mouth feel. For a nice cigar when you don't have over an hour to spend, these do nicely. These aren't cheap machine rolled, chopped up tobacco, these are hand rolled long filler cigars and have the same flavor profile as their larger counterparts. Highly recommended!

Not as good as its smaller ring size brothers.

The Amazon is my favorite cigar of all. But when the GOL goes on sale I will buy it and I do really enjoy it. My buddies favorite cigar is partagas black so he and I go head-to-head and often when we trade we are both satisfied.

Top notch tin cigar
This is a great little cigar when you don't have the time for a full size. Medium/full strength but smooth. The burn is slow and even. You can smoke it down to nothing without a burn in your draw. only drawback was they are on the small side for a 5 cigar tin and I wish they were a little bigger.

A new "Favourite"
Nicely made cigars, with no worry of peeling and tears, as can sometimes happen with mail-order cigars. Of note, I have never had anything less than excellent smokes from CI. The Gols are just the right size for an end-of-workaday puff with three fingers of decent malt.

Fantastic smoke
A fantastic smoke. Easy draw, smooth and oily with hints of earth, nuts and cinnamon. Draw was consistent throughout the entire cigar. Rests easy in the hand and lasts about 45/60 minutes. Using the Cigar Aficionado scale, I give it a 91.
5 out of 5
Simply Amazing.
From begining to end and I mean to the end. It was such an enjoyable burn I didnt want it to stop. Very smooth with just enough bite for even the full flavor loyalist. Burn lasted between 30 to 45 mins. This is one of my new favorites and recomemded this to everyone.

CAO Amazon and GOLs.
Purchased 5 Amazons with a box order of GOLs. Sadly, I was disappointed with both orders. The cigars were not fresh. The GOL box was damaged but the cigars were intact; however, they were stale. The Amazons were borderline. They obviously did not have the proper humidity for quite awhile and were crunchy. First time I've been disappointed with a CI order.

Very good value for the money. Good taste. Not as firm as other CAOs.

CAO Brazila
As a beggining smoker ill preface this with that i cannot pull out many of the more subtle flavors. The CAO is a very full bodied cigar, with an immediate black coffe and subtle cocoa flavors. From what i remember i also recall an earth towards the end, and there is a strength to this cigar as well, i got a slight nicotine rush at the end, this may just be from me being a light weight. There is a harshness to the smoke that i dont notice on other higher quality cigars, but it dosent detract from the flavors at all in my opinion. Overall this is a great cigar for the price and i would reccomend them to anyone else who smokes.

Always A Tasty Treat
I can always remember the first time I tried one of these beauties. I was a little jaded because my palette did not agree with the Italian at all. I was very surprised at just how different this blend was and how much flavor it presented. I purposely do not smoke these very often because I like to be re-impressed everytime I light one up. You just can't go wrong if you are a fan of full flavored blends

One of my top shelf.
About a year or so ago I heard rumors CAO was possibly changing tobacco vendors or something of that order. Well I don't believe that's been the case. When the Amazons arrived, 4 days later I was on a plane to Cancun and shared the box with the groomsman of a family wedding. Had no time in my humi to mature. Right out of the box, everyone including myself felt CAO did a fine job. Again. I have always loved the flavor of this cigar. It's like a heavy Cabernet while eating a bloody ribeye. Just delicious. To top it off the father of the bride was pouring a 12 year old single malt called Yellow Dot, from Ireland I believe. The two together......perfect.

I got to try this cigar from a sampler. I'm new to the cigar smoking world and at first I was kind of scared of this cigar. I had a bad experience with full-body cigars. My first impression was bad!!! It has a barnyard acid odor. Once I light it up its another story!!! It has a coffee, nutty flavor that I loved. It burns very evenly and lasts about an hour and a half. I will buy again!!!

Superb Tobaccos
1st quality tobaccos, as always with CAO. With CI's usual absolute freshness, I had to bring the RH down slightly below 65%, as I prefer it, and it was great. BUT - I bought a box of the Anazonia size, and while never too strong, it's almost too much cigar. I'll likely order a smaller size next time. 5 stars to CAO for quality; 5 stars to CI for freshness.

This cigar is super. Very few cigars of this quality can be purchased for the price. Excellent flavor, and aroma. Very consistent in high quality construction. As with all my CI purchases, I recommend letting the cigars rest for a few days in a humidor to get them over the transportation shock. You will not be disappointed.

CAO Brazilia: Spectacular!
I am really picky and don’t have time or money to waste smoking bad, or even mediocre cigars. I like a lot of flavor and these deliver it in spades! I believe these are on a par with even the best cubans I’ve smoked. Be warned, though, they are strong and if you’re a beginner, they may make you cry like a little girl.

Go to cigar
I have been smoking CAO Brazilias for over 10 years and it is absolutely my go to cigar. For a full bodied cigar, it is smooth and flavorful, well constructed and never harsh. Smoke one almost every night. Great cigar.

Above and beyond the average smoke
CAO has done a fine job with the Brazillia. It's a thoroughly consistent and appealing smoke with peppery tones and a down-home thickness: sorta like Aunt Maggies beef stew! From light to end this is a cool and rich smoke that satisfies; it cannot be overlooked while smoking. A fine evening cigar.

I first tried the CAO Brazilia's when I was on combat deployment to Afghanistan in 2011. I was really wanting a good solid and mature smoke. My friend brought me a handful of these beauties and it was like taking a bite out of premium steak for me. I was instantly in love with these. The taste has held out well throughout the years. -ES

I usually get the CAO Brazilia Gol! (5" x 56). those take a while to smoke. I was super excited to find out that they make a smaller size that you can smoke in half an hour. Tasty full-flavored cigar made from the finest Brazilian wrappers, aged Nicaraguan long leaves and binders, and aged extensively.

Customer Testimonials
Yessireebob! Damn fine stick indeed! Up there with the best.
Enjoying my 3rd of a 5-pack of CAO Brazilia, Gordo. Very, very enjoyable. One of my favs now. I generally like a mild-medium stick, but the Brazilia is a full flavored cigar, with a lush dark wrapper that gives almost a creaminess like a dark mocha latte with a very pleasant tobacco flavor. The firm construction is well wrapped. I'll be purchasing more Brazilias, and will be trying more CAO's in the near future.
Bought one from a local B&M and it was one of the best full body cigars I've ever tasted. Smooth and surprisingly light from a full bodied cigar, it burned very sharp and never had a harsh taste. Thinking about buying a box from CI. Delicious and a lot of cocoa, even at 19 years old, both the girlfriend and I loved the chocolate taste. Great product, great price.
Love these cigars; full bodied. Great flavor!!
Pretty good smoke, one of CAO's better sticks, but the one I had didn't quite live up to the hype in my opinion.
What a great medium strength, full flavored cigar. Long finish and very creamy. From start to tiny nub the flavors were great. Construction, burn and smoke output were A+. I will definitely be ordering a box and putting this into regular rotation. This would pair very well with a strong coffee or espresso, a complex ale or a peaty scotch. Way to go CAO.
Should I tell you it sucks in order to keep them all for myself? It's awful!
What a burn! I had some reservations about how dark this cigar was because I thought I might turn bright green from an overpowering puff; however, this is a fantastic smoke. It is full of flavor and draws evenly. Don't worry about it being rated as a "full", as it is one of the smoother cigars I have ever had. The nuttiness of the tobacco is spot on.
Just got my box last week. This going to be my new every day smoke. The price is nice for such a good smoke.
Tell ya what...the GOL is just a great smoke...it's one of those smokes that you just save until you have time to savor! It's just about time to order another box... I don't think CAO makes a bad cigar, in my opinion, and the Brazilia, Italia, and Golds get my nod. Between the three of them, they have my entire palette covered!
Pretty awesome smoke for the money. Best of the CAO brand imo.
WOW! This little suckers took me by surprise. Considering the price, I figured a decent cigar with average flavor. Not so. LOTS of flavor. There is a nice level of strength, which I love, but it's smooth creamy. This is one the newbies need to be cautious with. It's so delicious and smooth, they'll be nicotine drunk before they even notice they're dizzy. A box of these will definitely be in my next order.
Excellent cigar with perfect construction, burn and flavor.
Smooth more than half way through. Creamy, oak, leather taste, and it kicked my butt towards the end. lolololol. I want more!
Good smoke!
My go-to cigar. Here's thing though...I am finding inconsistency in the construction. One may be very tight, with difficult draw while another may be a perfect smooth draw with full creamy smoke. I've had a couple fall apart on me as well from same order where others were fine. When CAO Brazilla Samba is on - they are one of the best - flavorful, smooth and tasty, truly enjoyable. When the stick is off it's game...it's very disappointing. I continue to order for now with hopes that I just caught a bad batch.
I got a Brazilia in a sampler. I usually prefer mild to medium-bodied smokes. This is a very smooth enjoyable smoke! Don't rush it, just enjoy...You won't be disappointed. Give yourself an hour.
Tasty, complexity, affordability, construction. It's all there! Stop browsing & start buying. Great stick for a great price, TRY IT!
All I can really say is "WOW"! I have finally found the perfect cigar.
I really enjoyed the flavor of these, however I was not impressed with it's construction. I bought a five pack just to check them out, and with every one of them the wrapper would start to unravel even with the most careful of cut. The ultimately had a negative effect with the burn. Not sure if I had a bad batch or what. If I were to try again I might try a punch cut.
If you love a full cigar with a 90+ rating (who doesn't?) this one is for you. I personally enjoy this one as a robusto and bullet cut. Smooth cool draw and very balanced for a full cigar.
I've got to say...this is one of my top 3 cigars. Never had a bad cigar from CAO. Need to see these more often on the Daily Deal. If you're on the fence...give this dark beauty a try.
These are terrific! Just received 2 boxes as my new go to smoke. Excellent buy.
The Cariocas are a great short smoke. There are very few tinned cigarillos that actually taste like their bigger counterparts and these definitely do. If you're looking for a nice 15-30 minute smoke that tastes like a real cigar, definitely get these.
Wonderful smoke!
I quit smoking cigars about seven years ago and just recently started again. The Brazilia was always one of my favorites back then so decided to try one again. What a pleasure. Everything I remembered and then some. I have had three and each of them were great. Perfect draw, never a burn issue, lots of great smoke without a lot of work. I know it is rated on the fuller side but to me this one is perfect. Never too strong and I tend to go towards a little milder rated cigar. Just ordered a box and can't wait for them to come in!
Got this as part of a sampler. This is a very good cigar with a nutty/peppery beginning. It has a slight hint of chocolate. Very good even draw throughout. Smoked to a nub and was not harsh at all.
GOL-lee. Couldn't help myself:) The CAO Brazilia GOL is a very good cigar. Some of them are wound too tight though and have an impossible draw. The ones that draw easy are very enjoyable - they make lots of very tasty smoke and deliver a satisfying cigar experience. Appearance/feel is excellent. Construction is good except the little thin caps tend to pop off when the head is punched. I'm glad they're not any longer - seems to me to be just about the right size smoke. Just this morning I sat out on the deck after a big brunch with the Sunday paper and some black coffee - and a GOL, of course, which got me through the whole big Sunday crossword puzzle - and I wasn't in any hurry.... ....Anyway, when you get a good GOL, you have a fine cigar in anyone's book.
I ordered a sampler pack that had this CAO Brazilia in it, and this is great cigar! Beautifully made, great burn and awesome taste! I have tried quite a few other cigars and this one I will be ordering again. In fact, I liked this one so much I ordered another sampler with just CAO's in it. I received them yesterday and I am going to let them set in my humidor for a little while. Can't wait to try the other ones!
A pretty good cigar. Not a peppered as the Italia.
One of my favorites. Stays stocked in my humidor. Smooth taste with a slight kick of strength. Retro-hale is smooth with a slight citrus note. nice cool burn , every once in a while ill have a stick that burns a little uneven, but this is a winner imo.
Love them great stick
I just got these in and have smoked 2 so far.Very pleased. I actualy like the Partagus Blacks, but these may have changed my mind.very good draw and very good taste. Do not be hesitant to try...You will be sorry if you do. To me it finishes better than the Monticristo Media Noche. Just saying.
You can't go worng with these. A friend recommended them while I was deployed to Afghanistan and I have made 3 purchases since. Flavor profile is just as described and they are a reasonably priced regular stick. I love CAO but this is by far on eof their best. If you like these also try CAO MX2. Enjoy
Spice, leather, earth... this cigar has it all! If you're a maduro fan and you haven't tried one of these, you're in the wrong. My go to cigar.
Not my favorite...somewhat bland and not a lot of depth in flavor. However it is full strength.
I had my first CAO Brazilia ( GOL) about 10 years ago, after reading about them in Cigar Aficionado. I picked up a handful of different CAO cigars to try from a local cigar retailer. The CAO Brazilia to me is CAO's finest offering. It feels good ,burns great, and leaves a wonderful spicy/ cocoa taste and aroma though-out. The cigar gets even more full bodied as you near the end. And you may possibly smoke the entire cigar without the ash dropping (amazing) This was one of the first full boxes of cigars I purchased. To this day I always make sure to have at least one of them, in one of my humidors. Today I could not resist the box purchase when CI offered a freebie offer with it. 25 of my all time favorite cigars for the price of 20! Great offer CI!
I completely disagree with those commenting that this cigar is only for "experienced" smokers. I have smoked about 50 sticks over the last three months as a complete newbie, and this cigar was not too full in flavor nor was it too strong. The flavor profile was extremely tasty and the strength was complemented by your A-typical maduro wrapper. I personally prefer maduros to most wrappers and maybe that helps me as a new smoker enjoy this particular smoke so much. The wrapper was well constructed, the burn and smoke output was great, and i found nothing to actually complain about. If you smoke cigars regardless of how long you have done it. You owe yourself to at least try this cigar. Very nice!
I have to say, I was a bit wary of these cigars at first. I have had CAO before, and wasn't impressed. These, however, are nothing short of excellent. They have definitely made my list of favorite cigars. Like others have stated, very flavorful without overpowering. Very even burn and strong ash. As I first unwrapped them to place them in my humidor, the smell of these cigars was like absolute heaven. Excellent work, CAO!
This was my first Brazilian Wrapper cigar. I have to say, the flavor is different from any cigar I have had. It definitely has a sort of cocoa fruity flavor and was smoother than I thought from the darker oily wrapper counterparts. All in all, I rate this one pretty high. The burn is unmatched by any other cigar...perfect!. I'll be getting some more Brazilian wrapper cigars to compare this one to. NICE!
I'm a newcomer to the world of fine cigars. I've smoked several samplers, and this is by far, the best one I've smoked. Enjoyable from the start to the last inch. The few CAO cigars I've tried were all great!
There are some brands you just don't enjoy. For me CAO is one of them. The one cigar I do like from their line is the Brazilia. This is a full bodied smoke most experienced smokers will enjoy.
I just came inside from smoking a CAO Brazilia Robusto that I got in the Backyard Boogie sampler. This is one awesome smoke, one of the best I have ever had. For a full bodied smoke, it was very mellow and burned well. I smoked it down to the nub and wish it had been a longer cigar. Definitely a cigar that needs to be in any humidor.
Excellent!
Been a fav since they released them. Tried all of CAO lines, like some; don't dislike others, BUT this one is a fine, fine smoke! My absolute favorite of the CAO family! I KEEP some of these in the humidor!!!
Great cigars. The flavor and strength of these bad boys are legit!
This is a beaut! I normally don't venture far beyond medium flavor, but this is a nice full body smoke. Not too much and very flavorful. I smoked the robusto and will be ordering more.

I have enjoyed many cigars in the CAO line up, but Brazilia is my favorite! Full of flavor and rich smoke, this cigar is full of MACHISMO!
I just love a full bodied smoke in the morning with freshly roasted coffee. I've tried so many brands I can't even remember but the best by far and for the value is the CAO Brazilia. I chose the little cigarillos tins. And what an awesome value. They are the perfect size for a cup of coffee. Flavor is full like you need with coffee and oh so wonderful... thank you CAO for such an awesome smoke and CI for the great deal...!!!
Bottom line, Great full flavored cigar, At an excellent price. Keep on rockin C.I. !!!
Just had my first Brazilia and just found my favorite smoke. This lives up to all of the hype in the other reviews. Great smoke. The price is just a bonus. Much better than a lot of $10-15 sticks.
Yes! A GREAT maduro. My taste runs to medium-full. There are several maduros I've tried and liked ok but I've just had my first CAO Brazilia Lambada and it was fantastic. It looks and smells like it would be a heavy, full-bodied, cigar before lighting but the taste is fantastic and it's one of the few sticks I'll smoke down to 1/2" before stubbing it out. Absolutely going to get more. So far I've been very impressed with all of the CAOs I've smoked, but this one is my favorite.
This is one of my favorite maduros, like a strong coffee, but blended to smoothness with cream.
Used to enjoy Brazilian cigars years ago, Few are imported anymore. Brazilian tobacco has a recognizably nutty taste, and can also be strong. CAO has a great blend of Brazil tobacco with others, resulting in a full, satisfying, but not overpowering smoke. Still, this blend is for serious smokers and may overwhelm smokers accustomed to lighter blends. For me, it is a treat.
Too bad i can't smoke these all the time on my very limited budget. These are as good everyone says they are, and then some.
I'm working on the first Brazilian Corcovado from a box the wife got me for my birthday. I've smoked the Brazilians in the past and claimed them as my all time favorite, and this bad boy reaffirms this claim. Excellent construction, draw, and burn renders one delicious cigar. CAO, you are my hero! Buy a box today, you will not regret it.
Partagas black label used to be my favorite cigar until I had the Brazilia...the rest is history.
One of my favs! A "Best Buy" for the $$! CAO brands puts out a mostly very good cigars (by the way izzit "COW" or "KAYO" or "SEE" "AYY" "OHH"?? lmao!) but this one is so very tasty, heavy nuts, earth, oak and chocolate fill the palate! Love it with coffee! I always take the time to re-up when I order any from here.
I am not well versed in the CAO universe. A good friend offered me one of these and this cigar was very good. The flavors are not overpowering, but they do build nicely and offer some variations throughout the burn to keep me interested. I would rate it 87 and would consider buying some for my humidor if CI offers them up in unique sampler or something.
seriously ... tween this and the america ... one of the best sticks out there ... top notch stuff boys ... I pick em up when CI throws me a sale bone .. but ... Im a big fan of the CAO line so far ... to me .. for the price to pound ratio ... these are all well worth the cash ... from the black on out ... have never tried the Italia yet ... but Im headed there ... everything else has been awsome. I had made a review on the VR that the wrapper flaked ... but that was cause I didnt let em rest at all off the truck. Update: VR is excellent in the lower third especially.
This is an absolutely fantastic stick. Nice, even burn; smooth, cool draw; and as a bonus, loads of smoke from this one. Very full, but at the same time, easy to smoke. Highly recommended. 10/10
Having purchase these on the; "Make me an offer" site, I did as most of us do and smoked one off the truck. In this case, it didn't seem to matter since the cigar was a work of art in looks and in taste. I'm sure more time in the humidor will make it even better. This cigar is bold, a cloud of smoke, easy draw, and great construction. While it is not just like a Diesel unlimited, there are many things alike, such as; great construction, wonderful draw, bold tase without burning your palate, and a smooth flavor that could allow an FNG (name given to new guys arriving in Vietnam meaning Fu*&^ing New Guys) a chance to try a more robust cigar than they are used to. I must not be the only person who feels this way, since the sampler CAO packs are sold out. CI, would you please get some more of these cigars, I would like to try more than just the Brazilla?
Outstanding in every way, construction, hard cap that
