CAO Gold

Description

One of CAO’s First and Finest 90-Rated Cigars

Check out CAO Gold, one of the cigars that put CAO on the map. Blended with handpicked, aged long leaves, Gold reliably delivers a classic cigar experience, and comes handsomely packaged in great looking cedar chests.

Don’t be fooled by the pristine Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper on CAO Gold, this cigar is not mellow. Weighing in at more of a medium-body, Gold’s exquisite wrapper is expertly applied atop of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan filler and binder. Overall, we’re looking at a silky cigar that’s deep and complex. If you’re hankering for a real morsel, you’ve come to the right place. 

The CAO Gold received a 91-rating, noting: ”...delivers a woody smoke that bursts with lively notes of orange peel, almond and raisins, all of which converge on the finish.”

Note: CAO Gold recently underwent a packaging update. We currently have a mix of old and new packaging, so you may receive either. The cigars are the same, just the bands & boxes have changed.

This is my favorite mild cigar. A great smoke with a smooth burn and a great mild flavor. The price of the cigar is great for the quality.

I rarely hesitate when a good deal on any CAO stick that crosses my in-box. Their gold blend is one of my favorites. The cigar presents as a mellow smoke but, spoiler alert, it is so much more. From the first puff through the nub the cigar evolves with creamy, nutty goodness through coffee, leather and a lingering sweetness. Highly recommend.

This has a thin wrapper that tears easily around the crown which distracts from the overall experience. The flavor is great, but the shape may be a bit much for the wrapper.

I'm a huge fan of the CAO line, but this is probably my least favorite of their offerings. The flavor was what I'd expect out of a Connecticut, but the perfecto performance was hit or miss as I experienced a few wrapper issues that left me holding it together to finish.

Like all perfectos they are harder to light and the draw is tight. I needed to relight it several times. Once it got to the body it burned fine. Taste was a B-

I assumed the V cut I used would restrict the draw; it did not. The draw was even. The burn was consistent and clean; the ash was tight. The smoke is bit like incense. I’m still trying to identify the flavors in this cigar; they are well blended. I now know why this cigar is highly rated. It is a full bodied mild cigar. I purchased it as part of a CAO sampler. I’ll be hosting a large group next weekend and we try all of them in this sampler. They are going to be impressed. Great brand of cigar.

CAI Gold Churchill. Very nice presentation. Box, internal wrapper with gold seal and a beautiful band. Nice looking cigar. Sadly that’s where it ends. Have smoked three and all three were soft and the draw was too free flowing. They burned badly, had to be relit multiple times. They do not hold an ash well. You will likely be brushing ash off of your trousers. OK maybe for a daily smoke. Not something I would offer a guest or a friend. I would have given it one or two start except for the nice presentation. Yes, I see the good reviews. Perhaps mine are part of a bad batch. Certainly not up to CAO's excellent standards. IMHO
