Quick Smoke: CAO Flathead V554 Camshaft

28 Apr 2018

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 Flathead might not be central on your radar anymore, but there’s a lot to like here. This blend—which consist of a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper around a Habano Connecticut binder and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos—brings some nice, full flavors to the table. The V554 Camshaft (5.5 x 54) sports a low-spice, leathery profile of milk chocolate, espresso, black pepper, and cream with a perfect draw and a straight burn line that requires no touch-ups. These days, you can find this cigar for less than $6 when bought by the box of 24. That makes it an easy recommendation for an everyday smoke.

Verdict = Buy.
