CAO Brazilia Cigar Review
I remember reviewing this cigar once before but it turns out I have reviewed this cigar twice before. Those two reviews were on the Samba vitola (6 ¼” x 54) but this one is on the Gol! (5” x 56), so it should provide some valuable information for you. This cigar was given to me by Cigars Direct.
Chubby cigar with a decent sheen of oils on it. The wrapper is dark with a multitude of little white specs. There are a couple of holes; one rather largish. A bunch of thin veins span the distance of the cigar. Fairly tightly packed.
Ring Guage: 56
Price: $33.00/5 Pack | $95.00/Box of 20
Starts out very well. Earth, chocolate and spice are the troika that makes up the flavors in the beginning. Those flavors add on a meaty flavor after an inch or two. Some saltiness too.
It is not a very powerful cigar but I would still peg it as being full bodied. Well, medium-full bodied. The flavors are quite nice; most CAO cigars are pretty good in my estimation. The draw is good and so is the burn. Those holes that I told you about haven’t hurt the performance of the cigar.
Flavors are very lively. Maybe a little too much on the bitter side for my taste but it is definitely a very enjoyable cigar. Just as I wrote that it got a little bitterer. It’s quickly approaching the Rubicon of being too bitter.
It is a consistently good cigar and, fortunately enough, it never passed that Rubicon. Solid flavors and very enjoyable. Pick some
