Smoked: CAO Brazilia
Smoked at: The Deck de Familia
Still not sure this stock is for me. On the first third I was very unhappy. The draw was too tight and the flavor more graphite and ash than an uplifting flavor profile. Now into my 2nd third, the draw is opening up and flavors are beginning to come through; fresh coffee bean and a bit of toffee. Unlike the new BX3 that is pure Brazilian leaf (I picked up a box just after its release) the Brazilia pairs a Brazilian wrapper with Nicaraguan filler.
My issue with this cigar is more about its construction than its composition I believe. Not going to say I hate it, but currently our relationship is complicated.
