Mild doesn’t always mean lacking flavor and the CAO Gold Double Corona proves it, IMO. I’ve had 4 or 5 and they always offer something new – mostly fresh or toasted bread, coffee, mild leather, cedar and often a dash of kitchen spice or mild pepper. Not exactly complex, but not bland either. They smoke beautifully as all reviewers note.
I’m an Oliva enthusiast and the CAO Gold Double Corona reminds me quite a bit of the Oliva Connecticut Reserve in both look and flavor. They are both handsome cigars with golden CT wrappers. They feel similar in the hand. This cigar emphasizes more bread and butter in the flavor, with light pepper toward the nub. Delicious.
Oh my, oh my, oh my. This is da bomb! The Double Corona (6 x 48) has always made me laugh. A Toro is 6 x 50. So what is the difference in 1/32? I dont know but this is my boy.It combines all the flavors in the right order, in the right amount, at the right time. This is my favorite of all the sizes. Its yummy, I got love in my tummy. The prelight is the same as all the others.....cocoa and espresso. Upon light up, the creaminess envelops my taste buds. It swirls around my mouth and makes me want a vanilla ice cream cone. And then I get leather, wood and a tinge of spice. Absolutely perfect! While the 5 Vegas Classic line is not big on complexity, it makes up for it in consistency. Its the perfect first stick of the day. I started off with bottled water and then quickly made a cup of coffee. Yeah, babies! Thats the ticket! Smoke is pouring out of it like my wedding night. The spice ramps up a bit and stays static throughout the smoke. It adds a little danger to the creaminess. I like that it remains medium body start to finish. At points, it nears full body, but never quite attains it. The buttery cream is maximized. Ive been ruined for the rest of the day. Now Im getting the hiccups. Some cigars do that to me. I have no idea why. Ive Googled it but cant find a resolution. Im more than halfway through it and I dont want it to stop. Im going to just sit back and enjoy this until I get near the end before I write anymore. OK, Im down to the nub and all I can say is, what an enjoyable cigar. I have 4 more and I shall treasure them. Im going to let them age for another month or two and see what I get.
I picked up a CAO Gold Double Corona on the CAO reputation and was not disappointed. 3 more later I can say this is a very tasty cigar that looks awesome as well. The flavor is light to medium, with nuts and hay at the forefront. Some spice makes its presence near the end. If you like medium cigars, give this one a smoke.
