CAO Flathead Camshaft Reviews [view details]

Showing 1 through 10 of 24 reviews

This immediately became my favorite cigar as soon as I smoked one. I don t smoke often and usually try a variety of different cigars. This is the first cigar I have made sure to consistently have in my humidor.

Most cigars designated as full bodied...aren t. This one IS. I m nearly 250 lbs., an experienced smoker, am full-bodied myself, and never pay attention to how strong a stick is supposed to be if I thimk I ll like it. But I ll only smoke this on a full stomach. Churchill size on an empty stomach might prevent me from being steady on my feet. Cain F fans who need their Vitamin N but at least want something other than black pepper to show up in the background will be pleased. Nice box press. Excellent construction, burns easily but won t stay straight not a deal-breaker at this price point . Nice looking ash, but not super firm or clingy. Tons of smoke, but if the wind is blowing your way, better wear goggles or have some eye drops. Still, I at least tasted raisins, figs, nuts, and some nice salty-sweetness, but this stick isn t balanced, and black pepper is at least 75% o the show. No great transitions, but again, no deal-braker at this price point if you really like the basic flavors in their proportions. I ve decided I can prefer the slightly less potent, but more complex to my taste, Steelhorse version. But the title if my review is accurate. The head on this thing is FLAT! You can t cut enough for a nice draw and it DOES have a good draw with a standard cutter unless you cut the cap off, and I don t think a 9mm hole is quite big enough, so I ve ordered an 11 mm just for this series of CAO cigars, since I got a box of the Steelhorse. A 4-star stick for me, but this will be a no-doubter 5 star for guys who like strong, peppery sticks with other flavors playing supporting roles.

"Would buy again."
Solid construction and moderately heavy in the hand. The flat cap is a bit awkward and is best served by a punch, otherwise the single cap falls off and potentially leads to the wrapper unraveling. The first third kicked off with leather and raisiny sweetness. The second third introduced a coffee note and an occasional hint of cedar. Although the cigar got progressively stronger, the final third finished creamier than the first two thirds.

"Excellent smoke."
Well made,gives good smooth flavor at full strength. Lights easy and has a good draw and gives 45 minutes to an hours work of smoking pleasure. If you like a strong smoke this would work for you. I love it.

"CAO Can Do Better With Quality Control"
Terrible quality control. I literally found a giant chunk of carpet rolled into the cigar. The cigar tasted horribly foul, so bad that I put it out and cut it open to see if I could figure out the issue. Inside was a piece of carpet the size of a quarter. Shame on you CAO...did you sweep the warehouse and just roll all the debris into a cigar? Really disappointed and now question CAO s methods and quality.
