CAO Mx2 Daggers Cigarillos

A Jet Black Beauty from CAO

CAO’s MX2 is a long-awaited, limited production cigar that employs two flavorful wrappers. The outermost leaf is an ultra-dark, super oily Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro. Underneath, there’s a second wrapper leaf — fuller-flavored Brazilian Maduro. On their own, each of these wrappers would be high-quality enough. But combine the two, and you’ve got something completely stunning. 

To mix the pot even more, the folks at CAO use a blend of select long-fillers from Nicaragua, Honduras, Peru, and the Dominican Republic to complete this complex handmade. The resulting profile is packed with layer after layer of spicy, sweet flavors. If you’ve ever enjoyed a maduro cigar, you better add this one to your cart as quickly as possible. 

Packaged in convenient tins, Mx2 Daggers are the perfect option for when you on the go. Slip a 5-count tin in your pocket and spark one up whenever you've got a spare 15 minutes for some premium bliss.

Fantastic winter smoke. Just the right length for the frozen tundra of northern Illinois.

Outstanding price and taste for the little beauties

Great little not so short smoke
Bought these for when I wanted a short smoke but didn't want to sacrifice flavor. Pretty close to the taste of the full size but they last quite a bit longer than I expected. Will likely buy the bigger pack next time.

Excellent while waiting for a plane

The CAO MX2 is probably my favorite cigar and never disappoints. Double Maduro, medium to full body, with the emphasis on full. Good rich flavor with a hint of spice. The Dagger is the perfect size when you need a smoke but don't have an hour and a half to spare. This little cigar is a great 15 minute smoke has a every bit of flavor it's bigger brothers have. If you like a good quick smoke and you like full body Maduro's this cigar will do the trick.

Smooth and enjoyable for someone who normally prefers a mild to medium cigar
Even though I typically smoke mild to medium bodied cigars these delivered as advertised on the spicy flavor profile and as usual CAO has put out yet another high quality smoke. They are a more full bodied cigar and I say full bodied because yes they are a stronger smoke than I normally choose but they also have a full flavor that melds together nicely which produced an enjoyable even smoke. So if you've ever thought about trying a cigar on the stronger end these would be a nice choice.

MX2 Dagger
The CAO MX2 is my go to cigar. I usually smoke the Gordo size, but really, there isn't a size of this cigar I don't enjoy. The Dagger is the perfect cigar for those times you don't have the luxury of kicking back for an hour or more, or when the weather gets colder and you still want to enjoy a good cigar from time to time. The Dagger packs plenty of punch in a small package, and does not disappoint.

Excellent burn and exactly what I was looking for in cigarillo style cigar. I have been trying several different brands to find a medium body smoke that I could have as a traveling companion and this is it. Very enjoyable smoke with a rich flavor.

Short and quick, just like me!
First try at a cigarillo. These are nice for a quick smoke when you don't want to commit an hour plus. Not having tried this size, I don't exactly know how to rate them versus other small sticks. I give it 3* simply because I found the MX2 not to be to my liking as much as other cigars I've tried. Don't know if it's just the size or the brand in general. Even so, for the right price, I'd buy them again just to fill this niche.

Cigarillo Delight
Excellent cigar for a cigarillo, has a nice coffee/mocha flavor and very even smoke. I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys a short medium body smoke. One of my favorites for a cigarillo.

Top Notch Little Cigars
CAO's Mx2 Daggers are among my favorite little cigars. The flavor is always good and consistent, they have a perfect draw, and at their size, they don't even have a chance to go bitter. The Daggers also make for good party favors at events. These little guys in particular were shared among the groomsmen and a couple guests at a recent wedding. 5 out of 5, will buy again.

All around the world… and back to Nicaragua

Since Rick Rodriguez has taken over CAO, they’ve released winner after winner after winner. From the uber-contemporary design and blend of CAO Flathead, to the experimental, innovative releases featuring Brazilian tobaccos like the Fuma em Corda, to more traditional cigars like CAO Pilon… it seems like Ricky can do no wrong. Today, that win streak continues with the newest entry in the “world-famous” World Series – CAO Nicaragua. 

Yes, though they’ve visited Italy, Colombia, and America on their tour of tobacco dominance, CAO has never released a blend specifically designed to highlight Nicaraguan tobaccos until now. At the core of this cigar you’ll find plenty of lush, extensively aged Nicaraguan long-fillers from the Jalapa Valley, Esteli, and Condega. Clad in a Honduran Jamastran wrapper leaf, this CAO booms out with a full-bodied blast of pepper with a core of nuts and toasty tobacco backing it up. Sure to become a best-seller like Brazilia and Italia before it, CAO Nicaragua is destined for greatness. Get in now.
