For the 4th of July, I figured I would sit down with a CAO America. So far they haven’t let me down. Let’s see how it does tonight.
Wrapper: Connecticut (double)
This cigar is well within the medium body range. The smoke was smooth and easily passed though the sinuses. There was a thick nutty flavor during this third. But there is something more, and I had trouble pinpointing what it was. The burn line was wavy, and I found myself correcting it quite a bit.
The thick nutty flavor continued through out this third. A nice coffee flavor came in to the picture. The body still remained within the medium range. Again, I had to keep correcting the burn line. Not a big deal, but I am pretty picky about that kind of stuff.
The final third basically went like the second. The only change was the body increased to the upper medium range. Other then that, I couldn’t pick up any change.
I liked this smoke and I will definitely smoke more. It’s not a complex cigar, but the thick tastes kept me interested. My only complaint was the constant correcting of the burn line. I’d say give the CAO America a try.
