Awesome Smoke.
I've smoked a lot of cigars since I started back in 2013 and believe me when I tell you that this is up there with some of the best cigars I've smoked. It's slightly better than the Basin and MILES better than the Anaconda. The taste is similar to a JdN Antano but a little milder. The wrapper and cap are applied in a sloppy looking manner so it won't win a beauty contest but it holds together and I have yet to have one fall apart on me. And for the people complaining about the price, I've smoked worse for more money. Viaje and AJ Fernandez come to mind.

Need no gimmicks
This cords is a decent cigar for the buck. Short and sweet is no need for the cute garrote. For all you adjective fans, is a smooth, mellow smoke with earthy tones and spices.

Too much $ for too little taste!
Nice start but flat finish. I too agree with the other viewers...this stick is overpriced!

Average stick at best.
I agree with the previous reviewers regarding the presentation and construction of the stick. However the accolades stop there. The stick although smooth, with a good pull and burn only possesses a minimal flavor profile. If you're not careful you'll quickly become disengaged. It is medium bodied. In my opinion totally over-hyped and over-priced.

One box is enough
Great smooth taste, but many burn problems. Very few smoked cleanly down without relights. A few were even too tight on the draw.

Exotic Flavors From CAO

John

CAO may be one of the most adventurous cigar brands in the business. Its blends take enthusiasts off the beaten path with tobaccos procured in regions not often utilized by most cigar brands. A prime example of this is CAO’s Fuma Em Corda, literally translated to “smoke on a rope.” Named for a process native to Brazil, part of Fuma Em Corda’s blend of long fillers consists of Brazilian Arapiraca tobacco that is twisted into a braid and left to ferment. This tobacco is combined with long fillers from Nicaragua, Honduras, and Brazil, and encased by a Honduran Colorado Oscuro wrapper. 

Something that strikes me as brilliant about this cigar (and all of the cigars in the CAO Amazon Basin Series) is the branding. Each cigar has a rustic appearance with a thin string of bound tobacco replacing the band. I tend to gravitate toward cigars with little details like this, because it shows a real appreciation for the tobaccos used, plus it just looks cool. 

As for the cigar itself, the flavor is as unique as its aesthetic. Notes of espresso, caramel, and black pepper give this medium to full-bodied premium a truly unique profile with exquisite complexity. What’s really unique about this cigar is the fact that you can actually burn through the “band” without any adverse effects, because as mentioned, it’s made of tobacco. 

CAO has definitely cornered the market when it comes to exotic cigars and Fuma Em Corda is a prime example of this. Well-made with flavor to spare, this cigar is an absolute gem that will certainly impress any aficionado looking for something a little different.
