CAO- America

05 Feb








Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro and Shade

Binder/Filler: Brazil…..Ligero from Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Italy, and USA

Size: 5 x 56

Age: Few months

Smoking Location- Ghetto Smoke Shack

Cut Method- Dual Blade

Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper is smooth and consistent and very appealing to the eye.  The construction of the “barber pole” is fantastic, the colors from the bands is great.   The lighter strip through out the stick is not an even size, smaller in some areas and wider in others.  Upon smelling the stick I was overwhelmed with an almost hay like smell, pre draw was tasty with a bit of spice.

After the light:

Method- 3 flame torch

This lit very easily and even, first thing I was watching for was an inconsistent burn due to the two different wrappers, but I was proved wrong.  I was not expecting such a “nutty” flavor with this stick due to the first initial smell and pre draw, the first 1/3 of this stick hits me as a medium body.

The middle kicked it up a notch and hit me as a medium/full cigar, the flavor changed and hit me as earthy with hints of leather.  This continued through the rest of the stick and by the last 1/3 would say it worked its way to a full bodied cigar.

Ash length- 4 inches  (had a great picture but all my pictures seem to have been erased)

Flavor- 7

Draw- 7.5

Construction- 8

Appearance- 8.0

Box Worthy?  Maybe a 5er, but at a cost of around $8.00, I did not enjoy it enough to pop off on a full box.

    Glad you enjoyed it buddy. I think I agree. I picked up a 5 pack on the cheap but outside that I don’t think I would find myself buying a box at all.
