CAO Gold

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 90-rating, noting: ”It is filled with sweet herbal earthiness, that includes a hint of pepper, light cocoa bean, leather and even roasted nuts.”

CAO a long time favorite
I have enjoyed CAO for sometime. Now I enjoy a milder cigar like Black or Gold and the larger gauge is a perfect fit for me. CAO has never disappointed me, from the Bazilia and America that I used to enjoy to the milder blends that now fill my humidor

Far better than the last two orders. I will never again order those LA Perla Habana Maduro. Worst cigars I ever got from Cigars International. Rolled so tight I could not smoke them. Tried everything, Pierced them, Watered them down, but still had to throw over half the order away! In the meantime, I will stick to the old tried and true, that I am familiar with. Bill

Medium
While the construction and presentation is good, I prefer a more robust smoke. The binder and filler are of good construction and the smoke is plentiful, the strength is simply not your full and flavorful blend that I desire. Good smoke for the price, ample for a daily drive, but as a go to it falls short. That is left for the Brazilia or Diesel or Ruination for me.

Recently purchased a bundle of 20 CAO cigars and the deal included a 5 pack of CAO gold robusto’s . Sounded like a good deal- wrong! The 5 pack must be seconds.Two out of Three so far were wrapped to tight and wouldn’t draw at all. Disappointed!

One of the best cigars on the market!
First, I love this size, 5X56 robusto. Second, I love the CAO Gold blend which is fantastic. Razor sharp burn, great draw, solid ash, and a wonderful aroma that takes you to another place and time. I love this cigar!

Solid Gold
Worth its weight in gold! Rich and creamy, solid tobacco flavor, construction, draw and burn is perfect. In the 5 to 6 buck a stick class these are simply awesome, what are you waiting for?
3 out of 5
Not sure what all the hype is about
After all the ratings and with a name like 'Hello' in Italian I just had to try a sampling of the Robusto. These are not endowed with long fillers and I've learned that 6" is my minimum length. The taste is in the medium category, and I'm not sure where all the leather, pepper and other tastes are coming from. It's an ok cigar with nothing extra ordinary about them. I'll smoke them up but, after their gone the Infamous 'Hello' cigar will not have a permanent place in my Puro stash.
5 out of 5
A creamy, dreamy smoke!
This is a fantastic cigar! I love the CAO Gold blend, and this new shape the "Perfecto" is nearly perfect. Great draw, solid ash, plumes of creamy smoke with a pleasing aroma. This medium-bodied smoke is the prefect morning cigar. I will definitely buy them again.

Mild & Tasty
If you're looking for a milder cigar that won't sacrifice taste this is your baby. Each stick I've had burns extremely well. I'd been ordering the Rocky Cri-Ojos for awhile, but I think these CAO Golds have a 1/2 step up on them.

Found the cigars to be tasteful for a Connecticut. Cao always produces a good product. Let these sticks sit for a few days to weeks. They can be bitter without proper aging.

lot of quality in a small cigar
I've purchased a lot of these and haven't had but two or three that were to tight to smoke .It has to be less than 1%. Don't see how you can beat that . I like the taste . They do get a little hot when get less than an inch left . Kinda hard to hold at half an inch . A tooth pick takes care of that .

Nice cigar for every occasion
This is a very nice cigar the only minor problem is it has a very thin wrapper which has a tendency to crack I would still write a very highly

Very tasty, mild smoke
I bought a box of Gold Torpedo's for a wedding without having previously smoked one. It was a good choice in pleasing the masses. They were mild in body and flavor but certainly tasty. Construction and consistency were perfect. I would definitely buy them again

I used to be a cigar snob; but as my palette matured I realized cost doesn't equal a satisfying smoke. CAO makes a very nice, smooth cigar that billows smoke and doesn't disappoint. Enjoy your own box today.

Great little cigar
Over the years I have bought several bricks of the CAO Gold Karats. I have never had a bad cigar. They last about 15-20 minutes making them a great in between smoke. I smoke them while walking the dog. When they first arrive, I put them in my humidor, in their tins, with the cellophane still on for about a week or so. When I start to remove them, I put a single Boveda humidity packet in the box. It makes sure each cigar is at the correct moisture which in turn makes for a great smoke. Also, the metal tin they arrive in, is very handy for other things.

Good cigar, good price
At a cigar lounge recently a fellow cigar guy told me there is no such thing as a good six-dollar cigar. Well, I bought a five pack of these and they cost me just under $5.00 each. And this is an excellent cigar for the price. No problems with construction (I’ve smoked three of the five so far), burns evenly, and the taste is good. This one’s a no-brainer. I’ll be buying more of these.

A Good Cigar but Mild
This is a well built cigar and I did enjoy the flavor. There is some cream and toast, but not much pepper or spice. The one cautionary note I would add that I bought the Corona, and while it was nice, the cigar is so mild that with that small of a ring size (42) I just didn't get enough smoke and flavor. I am re-ordering in the Robusto. I would also add that the gold label is similar to the CAO Columbia, but in my view the Columbia offers more complex flavors.

MY #1 CIGAR
Although this is my #1 cigar, outside Cuba, I found that the five (5) pack I received was not on the level of construction & taste that I have come to love. As I stated this is my #1 cigar, so I will not be too disappointed cause every now and then you get a bad stick in one way or another. CAO is usually a five (5) star rating and I can't wait to order more to get that top notch pleasure I am accustom to from this wonderful cigar.

I tried CAO for the first time last week on a cruise to the West Indies. Two sample packs 1 was the gold and 1 the international sampler and I loved them. When I saw that CI had them in stock I jumped on the deal. Good move on my part.

CAO always GOLD
had been smoking the Montecristo memories cigarillos, which is a very good cigar. Lately I have been an avid CAO smoker, all kinds and sizes, so I decided to try their version of the cigarillo and I was not disappointed. perfect draw, even smoke, great smooth taste. I will be smoking these for awhile now.

What is happening to CAO Gold?
My order of the CAO Gold Double Robusto was a disappointment. My first box of CAO Gold I bought years ago were the torpedoes and I have been hooked ever since. Just fine cigars all around. The Double Robusto is a different matter. I found great inconsistency in the quality of the construction and burn. The usual tightly rolled, easy draw, and razor edge burn was not there. The cigars had some very soft spots, an uneven burn, and at times a difficult draw. I'd guess that barely half of my purchase was acceptable. This was not enough for me to send them back, but enough to swear me off the Double Robusto. I'd like to stay with the brand, but will stick to torpedoes. Best, PM.

Perfect quick and mild smoke
These things are awesome! I much prefer a stronger more medium bodied smoke, but I'm currently working six 12-hour shifts a week which leaves me with very little time either during the day or the evening (coupled with school and dad duties) to get a good smoke in. Add in the incessent desert heat...and standing outside for an hour after an already long day becomes more than I'm willing to handle. These little smokes are the perfect compromise. They're mild, produce a good amount of smoke, have a light woody CAO flavor, and give you twenty minutes or so of smoke time. I'll be purchasing something more full bodied in the same size, but these have become a staple in my humidor.

Customer Testimonials
Perfect burn, perfect draw and great smoke output. This is my "go to" cigar. Mild enough to enjoy everyday, but flavorful. The double robusto is a great size!
Fantastic. Tried this cigar on a whim. I always like the CAO Brazilia, Italia, and America I get from time to time. May need to add this to the humidor. This stick is an easy smoke. A must try for anyone.
Very nice medium body cigar. My first choice for that Saturday night smoke on the patio! Very good flavor, perfect draw, and even burn. I will purchase again soon!
I found them to be very smooth; great for when it's too cold to be outside too long.
If you want to fill up the room with a fantastic smell or just want to relax after a long day of work, this is the cigar for you. CAO Gold is a great smoke, and you will most likely end up getting more. One of the better CAOs out there.
This review is specific to the Gold Karats. Big cigar flavor in a small corona/cigarillo. Awesome mild cigar, slight pepper at the lighting, very consistent burn and flavor all the way down. I have smoked my way through all the cigars I can find offered in this size...the RP Vintage 99 Junior, the Vegas Gold Nuggets, even the Nat Sherman Point Fives. All are good, to be sure, (BTW-the Nat is surprisingly tasty in both the natural and Honduran wrapper) However, the CAO is the best flavor, smoothest draw, and you know that this is the place with the best pricing!! These cigars will deliver big flavor.
I admit I'm somewhat of a novice but this is truly a lovely cigar. "Soothing" is the right word. Nice aroma and draw, good even burn....
CAO Gold Cigars are some of the best cigars offered from your web site, and at a cost that is more than affordable compared to buying them at local cigar stores or other web sites. My favorite is the CAO Gold Torpedo. I have seen other stores selling a box of 20 for over $120.00. CI price is a breath of fresh air! I hope CI can keep their price within the guidelines much lower than other stores offer. I have dealt with CI for over 5 years and have never been disappointed with the quality, choice of selection, and especially the price they offer for the great deals advertised every month for not only quality cigars such as CAO, but also their sampler boxes that contain many brand name cigars along with other great deals. Thank you CI for your service and affordable prices. Sincerely, JoeGoff, Louisville, Kentucky... Home of some of the finest tobacco in the United States!
I've tried a lot of diffrent cigars, punch, cohiba,vegas 5, romeo &juliet,rocky patel, gloria cbana black pearl, nub,macanudo and on and on but I consistntly come back to CAO gold, in my opinion they are the best cigar out there nd I am ALWAYS satisfied with their constuction, burn and flavor, and no skanky morning after taste either! When I share some of my stash I get compliments and thanks for introducing them to friends!
The CAO lines of cigars are ALL good and Gold is a keeper. Love one with a good coffee on my deck. Silk smooth and a great taste.
Wow! I am definitely no cigar aficionado, but this smoke was incredibly delicious. Now I know what it means to truly nub a cigar to the point where you burn your fingers. Bought two of these sticks at CI. Should have got a box. Great construction and burn. Mild, creamy, coffee like notes. I think I found my daily smoke. If you're on the fence, stop thinking and just buy them. You WILL NOT be disappointed. But you better hurry before I buy them all !
I had no expectations for this cigar, was just looking for a shorter smoke (this was the robusto), but it knocked my socks off. It had an oily wrapper, perfect draw, nice ash, even burn and tasted great (nice spice notes with a hint of cedar).
I usually smoke very strong cigars, The CAO GOLD is the only mild cigar that I can think of that has captured my affection. Creamy with mild cinnamon notes, very flavorful. It really had me craving more (which rarely happens for me).
I'm a CAO fan, but for a mild cigar, I'd prefer 5 Vegas Gold, which is still plenty mild, but just has more flavor. As always, CAO gives you a great build, even burn, and consistent draw. If I want a mild with CAO quality, but a bit more kick, I'm going for a CAO Black.
I recently purchased the Karats size of this cigar, for when I want a fairly short smoke, and It was ok... I prefer some of the other CAO blends to this, in my experience.
Having ordered the CAO sampler, the Gold & Black were among the best. All of them were well made cigars with great flavor and burn. These two just stood out among the others. Well worth a purchase, and don't let the 5.0 inch fool you. It is a good 40 min cigar, filled with an abudance of flavor that should satisfy any cigar lover.
Perfect burn. Don't recall finer white ash. I have been told the whiter the ash the more pure the tobacco. Truly don't know. Draw was good and steady. The Churchill lacks flavor at the starts, very mild. After an inch of solid whitish ash the flavor picks up some and is noticeable. A good mild cigar with NO flaws. Not worth $5+ a stick though, but a certain buy when CI has it on special. Looking forward to that....HINT!!!
I bought some CAO Gold Karats, and I really enjoyed them. Smooth smoke, nice size when you want a 30 min. smoke. I Highly recommend them.
In June I ordered a box of CAO Gold Maduro Coronas. So far, I've smoked six of these stogies and I have to say that I'm unimpressed! Each one of these hard-to-the-touch smokes has had a very firm draw, and absolutely will NOT stay lit. Smoking them has been a chore -- I won't buy them again.
Great mild-medium sticks. Superb construction and even burn, ash hangs a good long time. Good flavor profile that gets a little kick about halfway through.
I smoked my first Gold Robusto this afternoon. I was reminded of the 5 Vegas Gold and Cusano 18, but with a touch more complexity in the final half of it. It had a little zing and complemented my cup of java very well. This is a superb "wake up the palate". If you go mild then go CAO Gold.
Extremely well-made cigar. (CAO Gold) Between mild and medium. If you smoke Vegas Gold, this cigar is just a little bit more flavor without any bite. Even burn, a smoke to the nub cigar
I am finishing a corona righ as we speak, I adore the CAO brand... roughly 1/3 of their line has made my cabinet [a feat not so easily achieved] though this one has not made my cabinet, it is a great daily stick if you light light-bodied smokes (CAO Gold). This has a pleasant aroma.. oddly enough kinda bold for how smooth it is, bu that I attribute to Oettinger's ecclectic blending tactics. A creamy Conneticut wrapper... it doe shave the Nicaraguan bite... but mellowed out with the seeded Equadorian leaf. A nice stick. My rate this stick: 85
A mild cigar (CAO Gold) with some flavor. I am a fan of full bodied cigars, but this is the one mild one that I smoke. Like the other CAO's, the construction and burn are perfect. Great change of pace from stronger, more full bodied cigars.
Smooth and mild, almost flat and one-dimensional when first lit up, it (CAO Gold) grows in complexity about halfway through. Room aroma and aftertaste are pleasant. A tame morning cigar, or maybe a good one to start with for novices. Especially good with a cup of coffee or English breakfast tea.
I was a little skeptical, but from the minute I lit this cigar(CAO Gold) to the last draw I was truly in heaven. A very smooth and mellow smoke,if you like mild cigars this is the one for you. A very good smoke, thank you CI.
