CAO Amazon Basin Extra Añejo

Team Cigar Review: CAO Amazon Basin Extra Añejo

The CAO Amazon Basin Extra Añejo started well, with a nice combination of flavors, but as the sweetness departed in the second third, the profile became average and remained that way through to the end. I didn't find this version of the cigar on par with the original release. It's a step above the Fuma em Corda, but doesn't reach the level that the original or the Anaconda achieved. I don't see myself coming back to this cigar.

Showing much promise within the first third, reminding me of the unique fruit sweetness of the original Amazon Basin, only to be let down for the rest of the cigar experience. Past the first third, the profile had too much repetitiveness in red pepper spice and cedar, and as a result, I found myself being bored with the CAO Orellana.
