Size: Petite Corona (4 x 38)
Construction: The Cameroon wrapper on the CAO Flavours has some medium sized veins running the length of the cigar. Veins on the Flavours will not effect the perfect burn of the cigar. Like most chopped filled cigars the CAO Flavours may feel a little soft in some places but do not worry as the cigar holds up like a champ.
Draw: The CAO Flavours Petite Corona provides the perfect draw with just a tad bit of resistance. Please remember to keep a cutter handy as the CAO Flavours Petite Corona is too small to punch.
Burn: Much like the other premium cigars CAO creates – the CAO Flavours produce a perfect burn. The ash is a bright white but is flaky due to being chopped tobacco. The ash will have a tendency to fall off and land in your lap with just a bit of movement. This problem is easily solved by ashing the cigar by yourself after a few puffs. Burn is very cool on this smaller cigar and will not leave you with a bitter taste.
Flavor: We aren’t going to go through all the CAO Flavours cigars. We simply do not need to because the wrapper does a very good job of telling you what your palate will experience. For example: The Cherrybomb has a primary flavor of cherry, the caramel have primary hints of caramel and the different variations of vanilla taste like vanilla.
The Cameroon wrapper is slightly sweet and pairs really well with any flavor that you decide to smoke. The Dominican filler is smooth and, again, compliments the wrapper and primary flavor chosen. These are all around light cigars that anyone can and will enjoy. They can be smoked as a dessert cigar, a morning cigar, or anytime you just want to give your palate a sweet treat.
Final Verdict: The cigar retails for about $5.xx and can be found online in the $3.xx range. These are the type of cigars that everyone should have (at least a couple) in their humidor. It is the perfect cigar to give out in social gatherings that every person can truly enjoy. Let’s not forget it is also good for the experienced smoker who wants to take a quick break away from the “usual” and give their palate a nice treat. The CAO Flavours are the best flavored cigar on the market and the quality can not be matched, so buy a box and keep these handy. However, please remember that the CAO Flavours should not be kept in the same storage area as your regular cigars. The Flavours can, and will, infuse both the cedar and other sticks. So as long as you can keep the cigars separate – then buy a box and enjoy the delight!
