The subtle side of CAO.
CAO Gold is a mellow blend that was counted among the first premium lines in the CAO portfolio of blends. CAO is a home run brand. Every line they have produced has been very well received by even the most critical aficionados in the industry. From top blends to trendy and cool packaging, they have created a completely new image for cigars.
Gold was one of the first brands in the CAO lineup, helping the brand get on the map and earn its esteemed reputation. Mellow to medium-bodied, this Nicaraguan premium is not particularly strong, but it has a lot going on in the flavor department. Gold goes head to head with brands like Ashton and Perdomo in terms of taste and smoothness, but it is in a league of its own when it comes to price. Don't miss your chance to try the cigar that helped lay the foundation for one of the most famous cigar makers today.
These are my favorite cigars to smoke, although the Robusto is most of the time sold out. I like connecticut wrapped mild-bodied cigars and this is just about perfection!
If you enjoy these also try; 5 Vegas Gold.
I love perfecto shaped cigars but I especially love this cigar! CAO hit this one on the nail. It is a very smooth, creamy but rich cigar filled with pleasant aromas and wonderful flavors. Definitely a main stay in my humi.
Great Cigar. Nice, medium flavor that holds throughout.
What a great smoke. Everytime one of my friends who are new to herfing ask what smoke they should consider and I recommend this stick. It has that mild to medium body great for newbies but doesn't leave you without an awesome taste!! I personally think it is a universal smoke great for anyone from any background. Get one and you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!
Great cigar,with smooth taste and above average burn. I recomend to all begginer smokers to at least try this one out.
I enjoyed this cigar very much. I smoked it after having had a prime rib dinner and the flavors mixed wonderfully! A great ater dinner smoke to be sure.

Ah, the Shade-wrapped blend that changed the way the industry looked at mellow. CAO Gold is a mellow blend, no doubt about it. But with its Nicaraguan long-leaf recipe underneath its Connecticut-seed wrapper, the results are a bit more rich and well-rounded than most of its kind. Stay gold with this stunner from CAO!
