CAO Colombia

CAO Spans the Globe

CAO’s “World” cigar line is a star-studded arsenal, containing some of the finest cigars on the planet. To make someone choose a favorite would be a cruel request, they’re all amazing. But, if forced to choose, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear more than a few guys declare CAO Colombia as their #1. This unique gem features a mixture of Colombian and Brazilian leaves that no other cigar on the market can match. 

Cuban-seed tobaccos have actually been flourishing in Colombia since the 19th century, though you rarely hear about them. Discover their most-welcome qualities with CAO. Colombia showcases “Ica Mazinga” tobacco, a leaf that’s been developed over 15 years of hard work. Employing it with a Nicaraguan wrapper and Cameroon binder, Colombia dishes out spades of toasted nuts, coffee, and a sweet n’ salty finish. 

CAO Colombia has finally received a long overdue 92-rating, noting: “Its core of earth and wood is balanced by sweet, fruity notes of black cherry and nougat with a nutty touch of cashew.”

GREAT CIGAR
I received a CAO Columbia in an assortment package, when I smoked it it was a very smooth smoke no harshness at all, lots of smoke and good right down to the nub. I smoked Punch Rothchilds before I tried the CAO and now I am a convert. Thanks CI

Creamy and spicy long finish with cedar undertones. Burns evenly with adecuate volumes of smoke. I would recommend it for a morning smoke. A true gem. Congratulations CAO!!!

I've learned through the years
I've learned through the years to keep new cigars in my humidor about a month before trying them -- they always taste better after that time. I AM looking forward to them ! ( If I got 20 or more, I probably would have tried one by now.)

OMG!
These cigars are great! I just returned from Colombia and was hoping to find some cigars there to give to friends when I got back to the US. None were any good. So I went online and bought several packs of these CAO Colombians. They are so good, I'm keeping all for myself!! Sorry friends.

This was a descent smoke but I thought it could be a little richer in flavor like the Brazilia, Italia, or even America. Overall I enjoyed the experience but didn’t make me crave another one.

Great Everyday Cigar
A great Cigar for anytime. This Cigar (I enjoy the Robusto) is smooth, mellow, and delightful with a perfect burn every time. Don't be fooled by the fact that this stick is made from Columbian Tobacco. The Tobacco used in this Cigar is of high quality and from Cuban seed. I have found this to be my go to Cigar and I think you will too if you give it a try.

Great everyday smoke
Great everyday smoke at a great price. Not the most complex smoke and pretty mild but good flavor (in my opinion). I stay stocked up with enough to share with other BOTL & SOTL, but inexpensive enough for those friends who "smoke" half and then destroy it in an ash tray or on a golf cart path (we all have those friends). If you haven't had one it's at least worth a try.

Smooth and mild
I ordered a 5-pack after reading the positive reviews on CI. The Columbia is much more flavorful than most Connecticuts I've smoked - or at least a pleasantly different flavor. I really like the ring size of the robusto (54 I think). My first one didn't hold an ash too well and its feel was a little spongy. Of course that could be the result of my humidor. But, it burned very smoothly with plenty of smoke and no bitterness or hot spots, and I never had to relight. Looking forward to smoking the rest.

Good quality smokes
As usual, CAO delivers a quality smoke. The cigar started with tons of creamy smoke and taste that I can only liken to coffee at the moment. That flavor was pretty consistent through the 2nd third. The last third however had a mild white pepper flavor that was sharp and pleasant. While I enjoyed thevery cigar, I'll say that it was much milder than expected. It didn't have the diversity in flavor profiles as some of CAO's other products. Still,if you're not looking for the bang you'd get from the Brazilia Gol, this is a great option!

very nice cigar.
smooth, easy draw, good flavor...I would buy again.

Made me forget it felt like it like 94 degrees outside.
I would give it 5 stars but this cigar was so smooth and relaxing paired a whiskey on ththe rocks that I completely forgot to try and pick out the favors until the last third. The end of is nice tingly tongue feel brought on by what I would describe as generous amounts of white pepper and a smooth creamy smoke. It burned so well I didn't even notice til the end that the embers finally decided to favor a side over the other, but that wasn't until I finally set it in the ashtray after not being able to put it down. A very good cigar for a warm fall day in Texas. I can't think of anything I would've rather smoked.

Excellent slow burn even when unattended. Though rated a medium is closer to a med-full. I'm not sure why this cigar is not a 90+ rated stick. Another CAO gem

CAO VALLENATO
I'm Colombian, so when Insae then I had to have them.. Once I got them and saw the packaging and how well out they were I could not wait to light up.. They have an amazing smooth taste with some good hints of coffee! Very appropriate considering where they come from.. They have an amazing burn even and very cool not too hot.. I was very impressed and will buy them again..

Nice surprise
Just received these sticks and decided to light one up as I didn't have much time for a longer smoke. First time I've smoked a CAO and what a surprise. Great little cigar for the money as I got them on MAO. Lived up to the other ratings mentioned in the reviews. Burn got a little crazy toward the last 1/3rd but was easily fixed and smoke to the nub. Going to let sit in the humidor for a few weeks and see if they get even better. Will order them again if the rest smoke like the first. Great flavor for a little guy.

I got a 5-pack of the Tinto to get free shipping. This is a very good cigar, it burned straight and is a fairly complex cigar. I would buy this cigar again.

Pleasant and Unusual Flavor
Not sure how I got one of these, but it was in the general humidor and since I've been having burn issues with my dryboxed sticks, I smoked this one right out of the big humi, at 66% RH today, expecting nothing but a different burn. What i got was a perfect burn and a delightful flavor that many have struggled to describe. My palette may be different; but, the flavor is distinctly citrus. At the start simply an impression of citrus oil, further in, sweet orange with something like apricot. From the midpoint onward more vague citrus; sometimes like a sweet orange and toward the finish very much like sweet lemon (yeah, what the heck is a sweet lemon, I don't know...but sorta like the old lemon lime sodas you could get before the soft drink industry moved to predominantly artificial sweeteners). The flavors are not in-your-face strong; but Very Pleasant, will order more with the next box order of cigars,

Tidy Tasty Tinto
CAO got me back in their fold with their Colombian Tinto, This is a bright, tasty stick with a great daytime flav9or. Good with my morning Java, or right after lunch. Burns a little quickly, but the flavor is consistent throughout. Glad to see CAO back in my game.

Smooth enjoyable smoke
Bought these cigars as a quick add on to another purchase. Glad I did! I shared one with my brother and he agrees it was a fine smoke. Going to buy a box of them once I have room in my humidor.

Excellent Mild Cigar
If you like mild cigars with a uniques taste this is a good choice. Since it is mixed with Colombia tobacco it has a nice aroma. Smoke is a nice full white and the flavor is very light almost grassy but with a touch of oak. Nice choice for the morning with coffee.

A must have in your humidor!
This is one of the most underrated cigars on the market. I keep reordering so my humidor is never without them. They're delicious. The unique Colombian tobacco ingredient makes this a one of a kind experience. This ranks in quality and flavor right alongside the Brazilia. This cigar is one of my favorites since day 1.

A new CAO in town
I am a big fan of CAO cigars the Brazilia and Italia are 2 of my favorite choices followed up by the America and all I can say move over guys we have a new Country in town and his name is Columbia. Light and delicious natural wrapper with a ever so light hint of earthiness and a nutty finish that burns nice and slow with a solid construction to make even the most picky pallet happy. Well done CAO!

It had good flavor, and burned even. I am usually a maduro guy, but I like what CAO puts out.

CAO Columbia Vallenato
Decent taste, consistent from start to finish. Wrapped too loosely and therefore burns fast, and sometimes hot. Not in the same league with CAO's Brazilia or Italia

cao aok
I received about 30 assorted cigars at my retirement party from fellow workers who didn't smoke, but they knew I did. aomong them were the cao columbia. I had not tried the columbia before and was pleasently surprised. they are mild and tasty and you can smoke them down to the nub without any harsh taste like some other cigars. they leave me wanting for more, which is my only complaint, I wish they came in a churchhill size.

CAO Again!
What can I say, I am such a big fan of CAO cigars. Always have a few of them in my humidor. When I found out about the new Columbia I just had to try them. Such a smooth mild cigar with a lot of taste. A typical fantastic smoke from CAO. After purchasing just a handful of these cigars, I bought a box. Great for every and any occasion and happy to have a more mild CAO in the rotation.
Customer Testimonials
I have ordered these beauties twice (Bogota, 6-60) and I will order them again. This is a outstanding cigar in all ways; in smoke, taste, ash... all the things that make a great cigar. If you haven't tried them yet do so as soon as possible you won't be disappointed.
Great tasting cigars, good draw. Had to relight a couple times. Other than that, great value. Would buy them again.
This is a great morning smoke to enjoy with a cup of coffee. Med body and lots of character. CAO did it right with this cigar.
One of the best cigars I've tried so far from Cigarfest 2015. Great burn, mild-med, but had a touch of sweetness I just couldn't put my finger on. Great with a Saturday morning cup of coffee. Will buy a box for sure.
What a great smoke. I got a 5-er of the Tinto and enjoyed the first two I smoked. I'm letting the other three nap for a minute. I recommend this to anyone who likes a medium smoke.
I smoked my first one yesterday. I gotta say, it is one of the better CAO smokes out there. I recommend this cigar to anyone that likes a medium strength cigar. I'll be getting a box of these for my humi.
This cigar is one of the best offerings from CAO. Very rich and smooth. My new favorite!!
Nice cigar with a robust taste. Beautifully constructed.
Good smoke! nice even burn, great flavor from beginning to end. True mild/medium smoke!
This stick is GREAT! It has become my favorite go to cigar, I can smoke it every day morning noon or night, lots of flavor and smooth all the way to the end, It has a little bit of everything, but not to much of anything...try it you'll like it, lots of creamy nutty earthy smoke a bit of pepper, coffee with a nice short finish doesn't linger, came across it by chance & really liked it at first, the more of them I have smoked the more I like it!
Had my first CAO COLUMBIA (TINTO). Must say this stogie was outstanding. Awesome mellow taste, smelled even better. Great Mild-Med. In strength a must try.
I have always been a fan of the other "world" line from CAO, and Colombia doesn't disappoint. I went ahead and ordered some even though they were back ordered and the finally arrived. As per the norm I didn't want to wait for them to "age" in my humidor so I lit one up right away. Yummy goodness. Started out very mellow with a smooth toffee like quality then became a little more peppery (albeit very slightly) in the middle all the while maintaining the mellowness. Good finish that was nutty, rich and leathery. Loved this one!!! Burned my fingers with this guy!!!
