More info about purchasing CAO "Cuban Press" cigars...
Maybe you have been wondering why I haven’t posted in a while. Well, I lost my camera. Do you guys have any suggestions on a new camera? Something good and well priced perhaps? I was using a Casio Exilm, it is by far the best camera I have ever owned. I miss it. So if you have any recommendations on something similar (or better), with the same specs, PLEASE help this agent out! Thanks Guys!
I’m not a big fan of CAO cigars, if you follow me on twitter you know why. One main reason is, I always have problems with CAO cigars, I just had one about a month ago with the B&B boys and AGAIN even then, a gifted CAO cigar failed me! One CAO that has never failed me is the Brazilia. It’s a fantastic cigar and it’s never failed me, not once. When I heard about this “Cuban Press” I thought to myself, “oh great, here we go again, another CAO fancy pansy marketing move.” But when I saw the Brazilia was in the mix of things, I got a little excited.
Let’s get busy.
The “Cuban Press” band is off. My cigar is lit ….. *puff pause* …… YES. Same Brazilia I remember, just the perfect balance of pepper and rich dark tobacco flavors. Probably not the best cigar to smoke this early, at least for me, because I’m such a softy (mild-medium body cigar smoker here), but you can't say no to this flavor. We have white pepper, black pepper, lots of dark smoky tobacco, which also is known as that “classic maduro flavor”, and at the end of you blowing out the smoke, you get a soft tingle on the tongue. Gotta love it!
I’m about halfway into this amazing smoke. The black pepper has mellowed out, which to me is fantastic, because now we are getting a great balance of all the flavors in this cigar. But now, I am going to try something different. Ladies and hopefully more ladies, I will eat a piece of Hershey’s chocolate. Yes, chocolate. … *chocolate pause* … WOW LOL … I won’t talk about it, you just have to try it.
Guys, this is a great cigar. Lot’s of great flavors, great construction, the Cuban press style is great, and great great great. It really is. The Brazilia is a favorite amongst a lot of us and this is why, because it’s great.
