CAO Bella Vanilla Corona Cigar Review

This 5.25×42 stick features a dark tan thin wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, a few stretch marks, double cap and rich artificial nut and cherry aroma. First light reveals a great draw with plentiful smoke giving a medium bodied taste of a dry tobacco and a slightly gritty finish. The first third as it burns down, perfectly I might add, shows a little tiny bit of the vanilla at the start of the draw and very end of the short finish. Overall it’s just a very smooth creamy tobacco flavor. 1/2 way through 20 minutes in, flavors haven’t changed much, the vanilla just coming up a tiny bit. Ending fairly early 35 minutes in with a couple inches left, the draw got hot enough to almost burn my lips.

    I like to get these to give to folks who don’t normally enjoy stronger cigars. Everyone seems to like them.

    Nice Review Bryan.

    A note on the contests; I think you should start doing some sort of competitive contests again. The random drawings are great and of course very generous, but kind of gets repetitive week after week. Just putting in my two cents, but as usual its your site do what you would like.

      Thanks for the opinion but I went through why I’m not going to already – barely anyone cares or participates.

      I think it’s also kinda rude to complain about it, as if I owe anyone the contests in the first place.

    I’m not complaining at all, I wouldn’t come to the site if I didn’t enjoy it, I was just making a suggestion, thats all, sorry to offend you

      Whah wha wahhhaa! Dude you complain to much. Lol just kidding. I didn’t see your suggestion as a complaint. But hey, now we know our boundaries. Have a good one mate.

    First off gotta love loud annoying vehicles driving by during a review. I’ve had a few sweetened cigars both using whiskey. I would definitely recommend a makers mark cigar. I’ve found that they are quite enjoyable. Any other flavored cigars with a stronger vanilla flavor? If I could find a cigar that tasted like vanilla coke I’d be set. Love the video reviews. Wish more sites did this.

      Wow, I just ordered a box of them specifically based on the fact that im a Makers fan. Nice to hear good stuff about them.

      What are makers mark like? I always have a Whisky (no E) with my cigars and half the fun for me is finding what coes best with what. A Woodford cigar would be great

    I tried 4 of these in the “Tubo” size, about 32 ring gauge I believe. I was able to smoke one down to about 3/8 of an inch! My favorite smoke so far.
