This Avo Lounge Edition Toro is a 6×50 medium bodied cigar. It has an Ecuadorian 151 sun grown wrapper and a binder/filler made of a blend of Dominican olor, piloto Cubano, and San Vicente tobaccos. This gives it an over all rich smooth earthy flavor with tones of leather, vegetable, and mild cedar notes towards the finish. I received this cigar and many others from Corona Cigar Co and was excited to fire it up. I have smoked Avo cigars before and have never been disappointed, this one is no exeption. In fact I must say the Avo Lounge Edition Toro is one of the best cigars I’ve had, which says a lot seeing that I prefer a full-bodied smoke. Ok now that I’ve hiped it up let me tell you why.
At first sight the Avo Lounge Edition Toro as a lovely medium-brown sun grown wrapper with just some light veining to it. As for its construction, I could find no faults with its perfect cap, consistent color, and a feel that any fine cigar should have. On firing up this cigar you’re meet with a deep rich earthiness that settles into a smooth earthy and leathery flavor with a vegetable note. Midway, and to the end, the vegetable notes are replaced with a wonderful cedar note that brings all the flavors together into perfect balance. This cigar would go nicely with a glass of Porto.
I know if you light up an Avo Lounge Edition Toro you will not be disappointed. So now that your about to go out and get this cigar for yourself Stop! There is only one place to get them and that’s at Corona Cigar Co. Yep, that’s right it’s an exclusive with them! But that is not a problem you can order on-line or if you’re in the Orlando area stop by one of the three Corona Cigar Co. You may even run into me there too.

So in keeping with the spirit of the 4th of July I wanted to review the CAO America. I picked up a CAO America sampler pack at Corona Cigar Co. over the weekend.
What makes the CAO America cigar unique is that it has two wrapper leaves, a dark brown Connecticut Broad leaf maduro and a golden-brown Connecticut shade wrapper give it a pin-striped look. The binder is from Brazil and the filler is made up from several different leaves: Nicaraguan, Dominican, Italian, and USA. The different fillers help give it a straightforward and full-bodied flavor.
The cigar I am reviewing for you today is the CAO America Constitution. It’s a 6×50 box-press cigar. I found myself to be quite impressed with this smoke. It is a full-bodied cigar the starts rich and leathery, nutty with a dark coffee note. Midway through it is still rich and smooth with coffee & leather flavors and hints of nut. The finish has smooth and rich roasted coffee and nut flavors that end very well.
This cigar, in my mind, captures the essence of American flavor. I find myself thinking of that classic backyard B-B-Q with burgers grilling and friends enjoying themselves all-around. All this cigar needs is a slice of apple pie to finish that classic American flavor. Scoring an 89 this cigar is a must try for anybody who enjoys a full-bodied smoke.

Burning: Even Burn, solid & white ash, perfect burn rate, no re-lighting needed.

I first tried this cigar at an event over the past weekend I picked up one each of the Cusano line.
I started with the Habano LXI witch is a robusto 5 x 50 with a Sun Grown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Dominican binder and filler. It has a wonderful smooth med-full bodied, earthy and leathery flavor with a hint of pepper,rich smooth aroma, good draw and the whitest ash i’ve ever seen.
My wife who enjoys a mild smoke tried it and loved it too. She encourage me to go ahead and buy a box. I’ll be reviewing other cigars in this line over the next week or so.
