COVID-19 Day 659: 3.5-Mile Cigar
 CAO Cigars, CAO Session, CAO Session Garage, Connecticut Broadleaf, Dominican Republic, Double Robusto, Garage, General Cigar Company A dandy 3.5-Mile Cigar-Walk was enjoyed with this perfect Connecticut Broadleaf Finger-Burner companion by way of this CAO Session Garage (Double Robusto) by CAO Cigars (General Cigar Company). I grow fonder of this tasty cigar every time I smoke it… and it’s affordable too!

I have always experienced stellar performance from this beautifully constructed CAO Session Garage (Double Robusto). Take a look at the images of this CAO Session on this page and you can see for yourself… Razor-Sharp burn… Sakamoto Happy!

Until next time…

COVID-19 Day 576: 4.0-Mile Cigar
 CAO Cigars, CAO Session, CAO Session Garage, Connecticut Broadleaf, Dominican Republic, Double Robusto, Garage, General Cigar Company 4.0-Miles are in the bag from this morning’s Cigar-Walk with this “Everyday Cigar” the CAO Session Garage (Double Robusto) by CAO Cigars.

This gem produced some Full-Bodied tobacco flavor characteristics that stood up to the outdoor walking conditions… I’ve been very happy with the CAO Session cigar’s performance.

This CAO Session is full-flavored, but medium-bodied meant to provide tons of flavor without the Nicotine Strength that will knock you out of your socks for the beginning cigar smoker. This cigar was blended to be enjoyed every day… a “Chore Stick” so to speak.

I can’t wait for the next time!

COVID-19 Day 505: 4.0-Mile Cigar
 CAO Cigars, CAO Session, CAO Session Garage, Connecticut Broadleaf, Dominican Republic, Double Robusto, Garage, General Cigar Company I’m a believer in the CAO Session Garage (Double Robusto) by CAO Cigars! What an awesome 4.0-Mile Cigar-Walk today with this CAO Session cigar.

There is no pretense to this cigar… only perfect performance all the way… thru and thru along with those familiar Connecticut Broadleaf tobacco flavors of slightly sweet and malty cocoa, dark espresso, cedar, and black pepper tobacco flavors.

There weren’t really any transitions that I could detect, but I was expecting that… this is my new cigar to add to the Walking-Cigar rotation.

COVID-19 Day 450: 3.75-Mile Cigar
 CAO Cigars, CAO Session, CAO Session Garage, Connecticut Broadleaf, Dominican Republic, Double Robusto, Garage, General Cigar Company What a workout!… and what a performer of a cigar in this CAO Session Garage (Double Robusto) by CAO Cigars, General Cigar Company. I can’t wait to smoke this cigar again!

From Cigar Dojo
:..The Session, is “an everyday cigar that is something special.” – Rick Rodriguez, CAO Master Blender

Well, that statement couldn’t be truer, and then some. This morning, 3.75-Miles are in the bag with 306Ft. (30 Stories) of Elevation and I’m gassed from this morning’s Cigar-Walk with this Connecticut Broadleaf wrapped CAO Session Garage (Double Robusto) by CAO Cigars, (General Cigar Company). What a performer that comes with a rewarding Connecticut Broadleaf experience.

I’m glad this earthy-sweet Connecticut Broadleaf wrapped CAO Session will be in the regular Cigar Rotation… is this Box Worthy?

Stay Tune!

COVID-19 Day 406
 CAO Cigars, CAO Session, CAO Session Garage, Connecticut Broadleaf, Dominican Republic, Double Robusto, Garage, General Cigar Company This generous gift from BOTL Christopher Wilson aka @SoilChemCigars in this CAO Session Garage (Double Robusto) by CAO Cigars, (General Cigar Company) was my first time with this cigar that was blended with the intent to be an every day “Errand” kind of cigar aka a Walking-Cigar… and I “Gladly” agree!

Chocolate, Espresso, Malt, Cedar, Black Pepper, and Bitter Almond (last third) are the tobacco flavors that I enjoyed… although thru a pretty tight draw that I’m guessing is not a characteristic of this cigar.

I’m pursuing more of these after tasting this apparently “Affordable” cigar.

Thanks for the gift, Chris!
