CAO Cigars Angry Santa

Here's the forth installment of the "Holiday Series" from CAO Cigars, Again this is a cigar I picked up from Cigar Train my favorite local cigar shop.  

So far I'm really enjoying this holiday series from CAO and the Angry Santa is no exception. Based on the Traviata, the Angry Santa is 6 x 52 and like the others, production was limited to 1500 boxes of 14 cigars. 

To begin it's covered with an oily, seamless, Colorado Maduro colored wrapper that's nearly vein free. Once toasted and burning there are big notes of medium bodied sweet cocoa that hit your taste buds right up front. The cocoa is soon followed up by nuances of toast, nuts, oak, caramel and some brown sugar.

The burn was razor sharp full length and a nice oily gloss developed on the wrapper just above the burn. After seventy-five minutes of enjoyable smoking the Angry Santa finished with nice flavors of caramel and oak.

So far I've really enjoyed this series of cigars, but I'm sad to say there's only one more cigar to go.
