110. CAO Cigars Amazon Anaconda Toro

Store bought at Brobergs Tobakshandel.

Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Dark brown like 80-90% dark chocolate, oily but rough feeling, still tiny veins.

Construction: Firm even feeling.

Cold draw: Sweet tobacco.

1st third: Dried fruits, like plums, dark wood, dark chocolate and a salty zest.

2nd third: A very enjoyable dark chocolate note with no bitterness just the perfect cacao beans and sweet tobacco notes.

The burn: Sharp burn, crisp white ash, firm and stable.

Smoke: White voluminous and medium heat.

3rd third: Keeps the same as previous parts.

Conclusion: The interesting thing about this cigar is that it’s well balanced pretty much all the way trough. This is quite unusual for a dark cigar, and it’s not so nicotine heavy either. This is the positive part of Brazilian tobacco.

Result: In my book this is an 90 point cigar.
