The Cameroon classic from CAO.
CAO L'Anniversaire Cameroon is a highly-rated, groundbreaking cigar. Each one is medium to full-bodied and full-flavored, which makes it a favorite among Cameroon enthusiasts. The CAO L'Anniversaire line captures the essence of what CAO has successfully achieved. It started with the Cameroon and Maduro lines, which were considered some of the best new cigars in the industry upon their release. All L'Anniversaire lines have received top ratings by Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Insider Magazine, and several sizes exceeded 90 points. They remain the most popular cigars made by CAO with their unique box pressed design.
CAO Cameroon hails from Nicaragua and combines a rare West African wrapper with a premium Nicaraguan binder and filler. The Cameroon wrapper provides a tangy taste on the palate and the smoke is full-flavored with a medium to full body. It is not what one would expect from a Cameroon wrapped cigar. Typically, Cameroon is very delicate and suffers from burn issues, but not with CAO. Like all other CAO lines, it has a perfect burn and firm construction. The measured filler gives this cigar a balanced draw with the perfect amount of smoke puff after puff. This cigar was one of the pioneers of box pressed cigars, giving it a unique and comfortable feel between your teeth.
People always say to me, "Ya that is a pretty mild and smooth cigar you got there." It always seems as if they are implying the cigar just lacks flavor. However, I simply LOVE the flavors in this cigar each and every time I light one up. Perfect draw, creamy smoke, and makes me realize how good life can be.
I was expecting it to be biter, but it has a very nice balanced taste all around. A great afternoon smoke.
Another great cigar. This is my second CAO Cameroon and it was delicious. Very smooth. Nice even burn, strong ash, good wrapper, and a pleasure to smoke. It was a good Christmas present to myself.
Although I would not put it equal to Montecristo #2 Habano, this is certainly a fine cigar. Very smooth, very creamy, medium-bodied with a nice ash, and near-perfect construction. This cigar, the Sancho Panza Dulcinea, Avo Signature, and the R & J Vintages form my daily smokes.
