CAO Black Bengal Cigar Review

This 6×50 stick offered very creamy smooth flavors including wood, leather, cocoa and a hint of chocolate at points, with a nice pepper kick coming in and out on the finish which was very short and clean. Burn was very good needing only a tiny touchup 1/2 way through, and the draw was excellent with just the right amount of easy resistance. 1 1/2 hours to the band point, where it became pretty warm and nutty.

    nice review!

    I never had any of the CAO Black, because like you said, I cant find them locally 🙂 I might have to pick up a few if I see them in a 5 pack when I order online. I also like the Toro size myself, so I would probably pick up this exact stick.

    Thank you so much for this review. I’m a beginning smoker that wasn’t quite sure where to go as far as my flavor profile preferences. After watching this review you described everything I have been looking for as far as tastes go. Just picked up a five pack online, couldn’t find it anywhere else. I guess it adds to the mystique of these sticks. After I receive these in the mail, how long should I let them rest? Thanks again, keep up the great work.

  • Thank you! I would let them rest after shipping at least a week.

    Bought one and was blown away just by the shear construction. the burn and draw were really awesome. it’s nice to not have to think about touching the stick up, or feeling like you sont know what you spent your money on. great review

    Got one of these staring at me from the humidor think im gonna have to try it now

    Had one today it just seemed to burn forever tasted great but seemed to produce little smoke till the half way point. Then it just opened up and hit like a champ but it started to unravel with about an inch and a half left.

    Saw them on cigars international for $50 for a 20 bundle. Smoking one right now. They started off not so good. Right at the half way point though, they got good.

    was eager to try these after this review, but am a little hesitant after trying the Brazilia and being a bit disappointed. maybe in time…
