This cigar is named OSA after the wrapper – Olancho San Agustin.  This sun grown wrapper was hand selected by master blender Rick Rodriguez from a 2008 crop. This is also the first cigar released from CAO since General Cigar took over.  And so far the reception has been good!!

This Cigar has a gorgeous golden wrapper.  It was slightly spongy but all in all just as firm as a good cigar should be.  It had a slightly resistant draw, but I tend to like that.  The burn was pretty even.  As you smoked the ash would not stay on the cigar, it kept falling.  This doesn’t really make it a bad cigar or ruin the smoking experience, just worth noting. 

This cigar is rich, complex, earthy, woody and very complex.  One can tell this is a bit different than the Traditional CAO that we are used to, but that by no means makes this a bad cigar.  This is a great cigar with a great price!!!!
