Cigar Review: CAO Nicaragua Granada (Toro)
The CAO Nicaragua is an incredibly well-made cigar. It might be weird to talk about the construction of a cigar, but there is so much artistry and work that goes into a great smoke. When you hold a well-crafted cigar, you know it, and the CAO Nicaragua shows the experience of the CAO brand.
Anyway, the draw is perfect, the burn is even, and the wrapper has a nice shine without being too oily. However, the flavors are rich and mild and even a little creamy.

Learn About This Cigar
You can tell the quality of a cigar by how long you can smoke it before it gets hot. I smoked the CAO Nicaragua down to where I could barely hold it, and there was almost no heat. While the flavors did start to sour toward the end, they remained constant and good until the bitter end. Literally. A CigarScore 4 well earned.
