REVIEW NOTES

3.5* Med body, Med strength, and flavorful for Med. Very short finish, which suits the cigar. I got a somewhat more grassy taste profile than the X2 line of rich, chocolate earthiness, and found it more subtle tho' less complex and impactful. Less on the dark, wet dirt, and richly herbaceous flavor, and more on the lighter side (like hay), or a softer wood (like pine?). I happen to prefer the X2 line side of the palate spectrum, but this blend was a very nice departure and, while not my favorite, it perhaps testifies to the more diverse range of CAO offerings than I know from their stronger blends. So what should I try next to explore their offerings?
