The Blaze Report

CAO Amazon Series tobacco from the Amazon Rain Forest.  The trilogy created by General Cigar Co.  There were some noticeable oils and a rich looking veiny appearance.  Cut and light there’s some earthy and some dark chocolate noticed, Some sweetness with aroma that filled the room with very rich tobacco note and some cocoa tones. Amazing draw while the Orellana just keeps getting better.  In the final third the cigar began to make a move from medium to full.  Overall an outstanding cigar with a solid medium to full body with a long flavorful finish.
