I was skeptical about this smoke because the last couple of CAO cigars I’d smoked, I didn’t care for. However, some friends at work kept telling me that I should try the Brazilia and I would like it, so I finally did.
This was a great smoke, I’m pleased to say. The burn was very even, the ash very white, and the flavor consistent throughout the entire stick. I tasted leather and hints of spices, maybe some pepper. The taste was smooth and even throughout the entire smoke, and I never had to re-light the cigar.
I’m happy to have finally found a CAO that I like, so I will be trying more of them soon, and probably picking up a few of these sticks to put in the humidor at home.
