CAO Rabid Reindeer – Christmas 2014

CAO Christmas 2014 001 (600x393)

Cigar

This CAO Rabid Reindeer is based on the CAO MX2 but again, like all the other Christmas CAO cigars the blend has been tweaked for this release. Starts off at a medium with a softer pepper and some coffee. The coffee has a bit of sweetness to it that takes the bitterness away. Came into a citrusy taste in the first inch that added a tangy component into the mix.

Halfway through the band and still a medium range but getting close to full. Coffee has gotten creamier and lost the sweetness and the citrus aftertaste notes have gone a little to the lesser side also.

Here at the end of the CAO Rabid Reindeer the coffee taste turned more bitter like a black coffee and the citrus has gone almost completely away. Power never ramped up like I thought it would but hit the full body range, even though it would be the lower end of full.

Wrap-Up

Would I buy it again? Yes. I really enjoyed the flavors but it would be a later day cigar for me due to the fullness.
