Hello fellow cigar enthusiasts, and welcome to another review by the Father & Son cigar review team known as The Tollaficionados. Today I would like to bestow on you the merits of a fine, exclusive stick – The CAO Colombia.
This fine cigar is a private label for the incredibly popular cigar retailer Serious Cigars. They can be purchased online at www.seriouscigars.com. With their company being located in Houston, Texas, and my abode with deep roots in Westchester, New York, they still manage to get my sticks to me in only 2 days. (Priority Mail) Always freshly wrapped with a moisture packet and in a box that keeps them in pristine condition. Definitely one of the better online cigar superstores that I have found!
Now, on to the cigar. We both had the Robusto (5” x 50), though you can get this edition of CAOs country line in a Belicoso, Churchill and Corona Gorda as well. The Robusto sells for $7.95. Not bad at all for the quality of this smoke.
The CAO Colombia is a puro. Columbian wrapper, binder and filler. When is the last time you heard of that composition? But I will tell you, we found the aroma and taste to be very pleasant and satisfying.
Construction – flawless. As smooth as an early morning and well fibered turd. (That is a compliment people. Do I have any fellow fiber-con users reading this?) Honestly, the wrapper was beautiful and silky. When toasting the foot, immediately the fantastic bouquet made itself known. The anticipation was building and we lit up. The start was good, a little slow but good, and as soon as it got itself rolling it became great. A medium bodied, full flavored gem. We both agreed that it was a perfect brother to the Brazilia, Italia and America. The long finish, solid and sweet at times, just rounded out the experience of enjoying this great cigar.
Do yourself a favor and give this baby a try. You won’t regret it.
Here’s wishing you a long ash!
