CAO Brazilia – Cigar Review

CAO Brazilia Robusto Review

After enjoying the Italia, it’s time for the Brazilia.

The Brazilia has a very dark brown wrapper… almost black.  It is very nice looking with only 2 medium sized veins.

The cigar is very firmly packed with no real hard or soft spots.  I originally chose to punch it, but the draw was too tight.  I then cut it and the draw is better, but still a little on the tight side.

It smells very sweet and musty at the same time – this is different.  When I smelled the foot, it made me want to sneeze.  When I put it to my mouth it is very spicy and leaves a lingering tingle on my lips.

I lit this thing upand was surprised by the creamy and toasty 1st third.  The Brazilia features an array of flavors including chocolate, cream, butter, honey, almond, and a bit of spice on the finish.  This has gotten off to a truly complex start!

The second third began when I dropped off the dark gray and borwn ash.  I was pleased to find that it had a very even burn line.  This mild/medium bodied third was silky smooth with a complex creamy chocolate core and spicy pepper finish.

The final third introduced some new flavors and increased to medium/full body.  There was lots of caramel and coffee in the final third.  The smoke is not silky and smooth anymore, it now has a thick and buttery consistency.

This is just a fantastic all around cigar.  I am not sure why I waited this long to review this one.  It really has something for everybody with a mild begining and full ending.  I cannot stress enough how complex the flavor is on the CAO Brazilia.  I hope you try one!
