Quick Smoke: CAO Brazilia Gol

24 Apr 2010

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

CAO Brazilia Gol

I always seem to have several Brazilias on hand and, by and large, I’m always impressed with their performance. CAO’s mixture of Nicaraguan tobaccos wrapped in a dark Brazilian leaf usually results in a full-bodied smoke of pepper, earth, and dark chocolate with good construction. But my latest experience with a Gol (5 x 56) suffered from a stale, meaty aftertaste and poor combustion qualities—curious, especially since it had been stored in the same humidor with my other Brazilias for at least a year. I’m hoping it proves to be a mere anomaly.

Verdict = Hold.

    Brazilia is a go to smoke that I always keep in my rotation. Sorry to hear you didn’t love this one, I think the box press I’d the best size.

    These are some of my favorites…it really is a great smoke, hopefully you'll give it another try.

    This has always been one of my personal favorites as well. Especially during the World Cup! 🙂
