CAO Brazilia

On a nice sunny and relaxing Sunday afternoon there is nothing better than having a nice cigar on the back deck.  Today I have the CAO Brazilia that I received from Famous-Smoke shop online.  The cigar is dark with a nice oily wrapper.  Construction appears to be top notch and only a few small veins were visible.  The cigar is a bit different than some of the other CAO cigars on the market, it’s the only one with brazilian tobaccos to give it a sweetness and balance out the robust flavors.  The smoke feels good in the hand with nice weight and length.  It clipped just fine with a good pre draw that was pleasing and had hints of cedar and some sweet tobacco.

The smoke itself that came from this cigar was plentiful and provided a nice smoking experience.  I was getting lots of robust flavors like leather and some earth, then the sweetness would come on the back end.    The burn had a few issues and a runner that took only a slight touch up.  There were a few changes throughout the cigar but for the most part it stayed consistent.  I really enjoy this stick and have smoked quite a few… If you enjoy the more robust but balanced smokes than this one just might be for you.  They can usually be found for a great price so take advantage while you can.
