Quick Smoke: CAO Fuma Em Corda Robusto

17 Jun 2017

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.”

Just yesterday, we reported on a new limited edition line from CAO called Fuma Em Corda that sports a Honduran Colorado wrapper, a Cameroon binder, and filler tobaccos from Honduras, Nicaragua, and Brazil. The Brazilian filler is what makes this cigar stand out; it includes Arapiraca leaves that were fermented in ropes—hence the name of the blend, which literally translates from Portuguese as “smoke on rope,” and hence the unique band made out of tobacco. Only 3,000 20-count boxes of a single vitola—Robusto (5 x 50)—will be made, each with a suggested retail price of $8.99 (there is also a limited edition Toro (6 x 58, $10.49) for internet and catalog retailers). The Robusto is dark, rich, spicy, and moist with a strong, full-bodied taste of black cherry, espresso, leather, vegetal notes, and a tangy sensation that reminds me of barbecue sauce. This is the first one I’ve smoked, so it’s only a first impression. From what I’ve seen so far, though, I would recommend you give the Fuma Em Corda a try.

Verdict = Buy.
