CAO L'Anniversaire Maduro Box-Pressed Robusto

CAO L'Anniversaire Maduro Box-Pressed Robusto
I picked this CAO L'Anniversaire Maduro Box-Pressed Robusto up at Cigar Train the other day. I'd been passing it by for quite a while and decided it was time to try it out.

First, this cigar is no where near as rough looking as it is in the photo. It's just a terrible picture. This box-pressed robusto is for the most part, has seamless and nearly vein free Oscuro colored oily wrapper. From the cold foot there was a faint cocoa aroma and once the cap was clipped the free draw contained a spicy flavor mix of black pepper and cocoa.

Once burning the cigar produced tons of smoke and some nice medium bodied flavors. I found toast, chocolate (lots of chocolate), raw sugar, caramel, white pepper, leather and espresso. The fifty-minute burn ended with a mix of leather and cocoa.

Overall this CAO L'Anniversaire Maduro Box-Pressed Robusto was a pretty nice cigar. It created lots of smoke, It was packed well full length, it had solid construction and a fairly complex flavor mix. Would I buy it again? You bet!
