CAO once again pushes the boundaries of what's normal in the cigar industry. Known for their trendy packaging and superb blending abilities, CAO cigars are a highly sought after commodity by most aficionados. Their blends are created from only the top quality tobaccos available, and each blend maintains unique flavors and characteristics from the others. CAO Concert proves yet again that CAO is not just a passing trend, but is rather a well-established brand and a staple addition to humidors across the world.
Always needing to standout, CAO Concert utilizes a luscious Ecuadorian Rosado wrapper set atop a mix of Nicaraguan and Honduran filler leaves. And setting the bar even higher, they also slip in a Connecticut Broadleaf binder that adds to the incredibly smooth and flavorful experience. Upon lighting, the cigar oozes with notes of leather and cedar with hints of espresso and sweetness on the finish. This cigar is another winner in the CAO portfolio.
Previously to trying tese, the Gold Maduro and the Brazilia was my go-to. I had not heard of this brand by CAO. This may now be my favorite CAO. Well constructed and a very consistent flavor end to end. Never had any unraveling or tunneling issues. One of the few cigars I smoke down to the nub, trying not to burn my fingers. I don't want these cigars to end! A great value.

Unfortunately, my experience was not a good one. The cigars I received had not been kept properly. All 5 cigars unraveled in my hands before I could light them.
