When I go mild it’s usually with a Maduro or something like the Gurkha Regent. I tried a CAO Gold Torpedo and will definitely find a spot in my humidor for these. There is more flavor than I expected – though it’s not bold. Buttered toast and some roasted nuts, with peppery highlights in the mix. The cigar smokes like a winner too.
From time to time I enjoy a saucy cigar like a Partagas Spanish Rosado, something in the full-bodied category. But for every day pleasure a smooth and fairly mild cigar is preferred. The CAO Gold Torpedo is reliably good, always tasty with very few construction issues. These are very relaxing stogies.
These attractive cigars could serve as the poster-smokes for the Connecticut shade wrapper – they are that good looking. The construction is outstanding as well, firm and consistent from head to toe, with a perfect cap. All it took was a small cut to open it and the draw was excellent. They burn just as good as you’d expect. The flavor of the CAO Gold Torpedo is quite good, nearly great.
I’m always on the lookout for mild/medium cigars that don’t bowl you over with flavor or body. The CAO Gold Torpedo is wonderful. Good flavors mingled in a complex blend that is very smooth and tasty. Unusual complexity for a milder stogie, in fact. There’s enough body to know you’re smoking a cigar but nothing unpleasant. The 3 I’ve had have been consistently good.
One word: the best, Great, Beautiful, Awesome, Stupenduos, :-)
