My first CAO Gold and was pleasantly surprised. Very smooth and lots of flavor. Not a big smoker but a couple a week and will be re-ordering these.
This is a delicious smoke as others have noted. The first one I tried dropped quite a few sparks during the first half, one doing damage to my pants. The next few were no problem and I could enjoy the tasty treats without worries. Flavor-wise, this Corona Gorda holds its own to another milder favorite of mine, the Perdomo La Tradicion Reserve.
