Well, I just couldn't quite wait for the weekend, lol.

This is a damn good cigar, beautiful construction and burn, loads of flavor. Great value at the current price.

Wrapper's getting a little fragile toward the end here, probably because there's more than one of them, and because I jumped the gun a little. But definitely a nice, complex smoke that reminds me of both the Italia and the Brazilia.

I have to agree with Mike D - tastes a lot like an Italia to me, which is good.  Lots and lots of smoke.  Flavors include coffee / espresso, woody, and I want to say soil?

These are well made, beautiful looking cigars - the kind you like to give to others so they can enjoy them too.  Its easy to smoke, no harshness at all, not much spice and I would smoke one again.  Of course, I see this as being the mandatory cigar on the 4th of July next year.

I want to thank Fishhound for putting together the group buy and letting me in on this.  As we all know, Rob is a generous guy and adds so much to the forum.  Thanks man.

I just now finished a Potomac. It was a nice relaxing cigar. It obviously was not ment to challenge you. I too fear this cigar will not age well.

Smoking one as I write, I have to say I am enjoying- not sure what I think compared to the Brazilia I tried last week but I'll figure that out when I get a bit further into it. I went to a cigar-car in Rome, Ga yesterday and tried the CAO Mx2 and I have to say I enjoyed it immensely- of course watching the Bulldogs beat Ole Miss(45-17) added to the experience!
