CAO L'Anniversaire Cameroon 1968-1998





















I like the feel of this cigar, somewhat soft, not packed too firmly, slightly oily wrapper, very nice indeed. I assumed that this cigar was going to be a little strong for my taste, especially the first cigar of the evening, but it turned out to be a GREAT smoke. Burned well, full flavored, excellent volume of smoke, which I really liked. I have one left in my humidor and I'll be curious to see if it smokes as good as the other. We'll see...
I'll rate this a 9.

Oliva Series O Perfecto




















I love Oliva cigars. I've tried all different shapes and sizes and I love them all. I smoked this perfecto last night and it was outstanding. Quality made smooth cigar with a full bodied taste. I'd rate this one a 9.

CAO Flavored Cigars




















OK, another cigar that was given to me - hard to pass up when they're free. I've tried a few of these now and I've come to the conclusion that I like them. They're different. That sweet taste on your lips is kind of nice. I've given a couple to my lovely wife and she loves them.

















I'll rate this a solid 8 (in the flavored cigar category).

CAO Vision




















Tried one of these last night. Started out with a bit of a bite, but it got considerably better as time went on. I doubt that I'll buy another one of these - way too expensive.
I'd have to rate this a 7.

Update - Just finished off another one of these and I can honestly say that I don't really like them. Considering the price I paid, I'll never buy another one again. Too harsh.

Padron Series
















Padron Series Cigars
Unfortunately this cigar was given to me, so I'm not sure which variety it was, however, it had a natural wrapper and it's length wasn't longer than 5 1/2. I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by how good this cigar tasted. Smooth, no bite, good smoke. Overall I'd have to rate this cigar a high 8. Would I buy one? Yes indeed!

Montecristo No.2 Torpedo (Cuba)
















The Montecristo No.2 Torpedo (Cuba) is probably one of the smoothest cigars I've ever smoked. From the time you light it up, until your last puff, it's smooth as silk. I've smoked at least a dozen of these out of the box now and they've all been absolutely perfect. Great draw, never a bite.
My Rating: 9.9
