I took a little break from the Blind review exchange with Charlie but I’ve brought it back. Although it’s not much of an exchange, since I still haven’t given him any un-banded cigars to smoke. But that’s my bad. Anyways, here is the fourth review in the series.
This cigar measures in between 4.75 and 5 inches long, with an approximate 50 ring gauge. The cigar is dressed in a medium brown wrapper with a reddish hue. Although there are numerous visible veins on the wrapper, they are not detectable to the touch form the box press. The aroma of both the wrapper and foot remind me of a tobacco barn. Nice looking stick so I’ll fire it up and see what path it takes me down.
Reveal & Reaction
So I enjoyed the cigar. The cigar burned well, and provided a nice complex array of flavors. The flavors managed to make subtle changes throughout the entire burn time that really kept things interesting. I was surprised to find out that this was a CAO Italia Cuban Press. Although I’d never sampled the Cuban Press, I have had a few Italias. In my previous experiences I wasn’t all that thrilled, but this new Cuban Press really kept my interest. I’d consider buying this cigar, and would advise someone to try it.
