CAO Colombia Robusto

CAO Colombia Robusto
I grabbed this CAO Colombia Robusto off the shelf at Cigar Train on my last visit. I've been waiting to get my hands on this cigar since it was released. Here's another case of the band selling me the cigar.

This beauty is covered in a silky smooth Claro colored wrapper that's practically seamless and vein free. With the colorful band against the natural wrapper, the Colombia is a great looking stick.

From the foot I found an aroma of  sweet, fresh-cut hay while the free cold draw tasted like spicy cedar. After putting a match to the foot, the first flavors were a mild bodied mix of sweet cream and a hint of white pepper spice. As the cigar burned on, I found flavor notes of sugar, lots of sugar, more cream, earth, toast, wheat and then some brown sugar.

At the end of the sixty-minute burn I was rewarded with an unexpected, but nice oak and leather finish that was down right delicious.

The flavor mix lacked any real complexity, but this CAO Colombia Robusto made up for that with a hint of spice full length and mix of solid, great tasting, mild bodied flavors.

My opinion? CAO Cigars created another winner with this cigar! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. You can grab a box of these for your very own for just $78.99 from Famous Smoke Shop.
