CAO OSA Sol Lot 54 Cigar Review

This 6×54 stick features a medium brown sungrown wrapper with small veins, tight seams, slight tooth, a firm even construction, double cap and a faint musty tobacco aroma. The first third shows a firm draw with minimal smoke output, medium bodied flavors of a slightly sweet and oily tobacco with a clean finish. The first third goes to a slightly sweet oily smooth tobacco and wood, with the finish growing slightly longer carrying the wood flavors. Body is very mild, smoke output is increasing and the draw is slightly better. The 2nd third comes and goes with no flavor shifts, just increasing smoke output a bit and body climbs to mild-medium. The ash falls off at the 1/2 way point and it has perfect construction. Ending at 1:15 the last third burned very warm, shifting flavors to a general nuttiness, with a very warm longer aftertaste. Thank you very much to General Cigar for providing this for review!

    Just had the new CAO Champagne Noir, Cuban seed maduro wrapper aged in Bourbon barrels.Bryan, I know your a fan of creamy and coffee/espresso…would love to get your take on the Cao noir…I really liked it.

      Isn’t the Champagne Noir a Perdomo cigar?

  • JJO

    I hear that the robusto has a lot more flavor than the larger sizes, so I’ll have to try one of those.

    Nice review.

    It is predomo…I mixed it up! Thanks!

    Perdomo …spell check has trouble with cigar brands!

    Is there a big difference in lot numbers? I know that lot no. 50 was ranked #13 in Cigar Journal this last year… if it is like what your review indicates, it doesn’t seem like it would be worth getting. Just curious.

    I’m smoking the robusto version right now and it is deffinately a lot more flavorful. A great spice and tons of smoke. It’s amazing how the same cigar can be so different from size to size.

    Bought this, smoked it, thought it was a very good cigar, Id like to find the Lot T version, i hear thats a better smoke for some reason.

    Im having the very one dimensional experience as Bryan did in the video. However, it’s not a bad stick in my opinion. I had absolutely no construction problems and it smoked beautifully. I would smoke again for the right price.
