Cedar-wrapped CAO Black cigars are made in limited quantities, and packaged in hand-painted, hand-numbered boxes. It was the best CAO I've had to date. It smoked cool, with lots of white smoke, and it tasted almost exactly as I remember the Fuente Hemingway from a few months ago-- lots and lots and lots of spice. But never harsh.

I was surprised to see a couple of online reviews that call this a mild cigar. I found it to be light-bodied, but full on flavor.

Definitely worth a repeat look.
