CAO CX2 “Robusto”

Hello everyone, today I am conducting round three of the Famous Cigars “Best of the House Sampler” . Today, I selected the CAO CX2 to review. So with the stick revealed, I’m ready to give you my verdict on whether it passes the mighty “Stew” test or not.


WRAPPER: Cameroon

BINDER & FILLER: Cameroon / Nicaragua

Length/Ring: 5 x 52

Shape: Robusto

Strength: Medium

Price: I paid $0.00, but it’s listed at $20.95 for a five pack on Famous

My Observations: This cigar is very nice to look at with it’s medium brown leaf wrapper and small non noticeable veins. To tell you the truth, I really didn’t expect anything less from CAO and of course I was not disappointed.

On my finger touch inspection, I found the wrapper to be oily and smooth. I found no soft spots or imperfections as I twirled the cigar through my fingers. Finally, I found the cap to have been placed dead center. Over all “A” in the grading department.

Cigar Label: Very nice with its maroon and gold colors.

Snip: Straight cut.

Pre-Draw: Woodsy.

Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of a creamy buttery taste that was accompanied with a woodsy flavor. The 2nd third continued with buttery taste, wood, and was joined with molasses. The last third continued with these flavors that was joined with a bonus flavor of peanuts.

Draw: Smooth

Burn line: A bit jagged at times.

Liked it: Yes

Recommend it: Yes

Hint: None

Over All

Until Next Time
