CAO Colombia (Escaparate)

CAO Colombia Escaparate

Whats up my cigar loving peeps? I know, it sucks that our holiday weekend is over and we have to lug ourselves back into the grind. Hopefully this review of the CAO Colombia will keep your case of the “Mondays” to a minimum.

The CAO Colombia is another cigar from the CAO Escaparate. The CAO Colombia can be found at Serious Cigars in Houston TX.

Video runs around 16 minutes and I’m excited to say, that I’ve found a close runner up to the CAO MX3. Keep in mind that the MX3 has home field advantage in my mind so its basically a push. I found the CAO Colombia very similar to the MX3 but at the same time, different. Thats a recurring theme that I say over and over again in the video. Similar flavor profiles but different. The CAO Colombia is a solid medium bodied cigar and has a distinct coffee flavor and milk chocolate goodness while the MX3 had a espresso and dark chocolate flavors. So as you can see, similar but different.
