The CAO Flavours line features 5 cigar brands including Bella Vanilla, Eileen’s Dream, CAO Solfyre, Moontrance, and Cherry Bomb.
There are also 3 retired brands from the CAO Flavours line which are Earth Nectar, Caramelo Joe, and Gold Honey. Even though these brands are retired, don’t be surprised if you come across them in your favourite cigar dojo or online store.
What sets CAO Flavour cigars apart is the quality. They all feature the delectably spicy Cameroon wrapper, a Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and premium Dominican fillers.
CAO employs neoteric technology to infuse fresh mouth-watering zing into their cigars. Flavours like vanilla, citrus, coconut, whisky, and chocolate feature prominently in this line. These, combined with premium tobacco fillers and that earthy Cameroon wrapper gives these stogies a zing that can’t be beaten.
To give you a glimpse into the medley of flavours to expect from this line, here is a breakdown of each of the cigar brands and their flavour profiles.
The name “Bella” denotes beauty which is true in this case. This stogie is a Bona Fide flavour bomb. It opens with implicit sweet vanilla so decadent and unbelievably delicious. And why not? The vanilla infused into this baby is from exotic Madagascar Vanilla beans.
Expect sweet creamy vanilla zing mellowed by a core spicy, leathery tobacco base. This cigar is not shy, the flavour is punchy and consistent, with dulcet transitions, and a fleeting finish. Surprisingly, this baby is not sweet-tipped but that would have taken away from the captivatingly delectable wrapper.
Whoever Eileen is, she sure had a beautiful dream. This cigar is a pristine marrying of flavours you would otherwise never think to mix.
Eileen’s Dream is a sublime cornucopia of sweet and spicy vanilla cream with dashes of coconut, white chocolate truffles, ground almonds, and a touch of rich Irish whiskey. You will be hard pressed to find such depth and complexity in perfect symphony.
Cherry Bomb is the ultimate after meal dessert. Indulge your sweet tooth with this tantalizing stogie rollicking sweet maraschino cherries, notes of vanilla, a touch of creamy mocha, and bare hints of blackcurrant candy.
You will hardly notice the tobacco base
in this cigar just because the other flavours are so potent. That
notwithstanding, the flavour profile on this stogie is so fresh and clean.
There is no artificial chemical taste, smell or any cloying flavour.
Cherry Bomb is delicate and mild with a soothing aroma and a tacit sweetness that is surreally good.
Moontrance is probably the most popular of the CAO Flavors cigar line. It features a Dominican and Nicaraguan filler blend that is absolutely divine.
If you are a greenhorn having this for the first time, you may need to go back for seconds because the flavour on this bad boy is spellbinding. Expect the piquant zing of delicate Georgia peaches, tropical fruit tang, and top-shelf bourbon flavours bathed in exotic Hawaiian honey.
CAO SolfyreThe aroma off this stogie is outstanding. Even though this is a mild cigar, it has some kick. You will not be overwhelmed but you will notice the strength is fairly intense.
Now here’s a cigar you don’t see often. The CAO Solfyre is the latest addition to the CAO Flavours line.
You better be prepared for this one because CAO Solfyre is quite literally “a match made in hell”. It combines sweet spicy cinnamon with fuggy nuances of whiskey.
Don’t be discouraged though, this bad boy is unbelievably flavoursome. The whisky zest is absolutely clean-like the aftertaste following a sip of good whisky. The cinnamon fires notes of red-hot zing co-mingled with hints of roasted coffee.
This bad boy is perfectly balanced, savory, and quite frankly a great change of pace from the norm.
