CAO The Sopranos Boss Cigar Review (yes I goofed the name in vid)
This 7×54 belicoso features a very dark brown extremely firm wrapper with an oily slightly toothy texture minimal veins, tight invisible seams and a mild damp hay aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw with minimal smoke output and just mild oily tobacco tastes, certainly hurt by the draw. 10 minutes in, construction is very poor. The draw is still snug, barely any smoke or flavor is coming out, and 3/4 of the stick is very warm and mushy already. 30 minutes in near the 1/2 way point flavors remain unchanged as does the performance. The ash holds on for the entire first third in a nice solid chunk and the burn line is very good. 50 minutes in just starting the last third, flavors go up a bit to mild-medium, the smoke output has increased slightly, the draw has eased a bit and a bit of a caramel sweetness joins the party. Ending it at 1:10 with a good bit remaining, it simply got too warn to enjoy ans what flavors were there were being washed out. Thank you very much to viewer ‘Mike’ for sending this my way!
