Cigar Reviewed: CAO V21
I find myself returning to the V21 7x70 like a comfortable sweatshirt on a crisp Autumn day. The ideal stick is well constructed with a clean, even draw and pleasantly medium flavor. My palate does not detect fruity or "foodie" notes, so I can only say the taste and aroma are not acrid or peppery and are very consistent, start to finish. But just like a favorite sweatshirt, they tend to be susceptible to holes and tears that make the smoking experience challenging. Wrapper leaks occasionally thin out the smoke and flavor and cause uneven burning. However, the experience of a good stick keeps me coming back for more. Definitely a go-to when I'm looking for 2 hours of enjoyment, no matter the season.
