Hi all, I have smoked cigars for over 15 years and I have not been a CAO fan. I thought they have been over done with mass produced lines. I was persuaded to try the Fuma Em Corda when it came out a few years ago and it was phenomenal. They managed to create a nice full bodied cigar and yet make it very flavorful and smooth. So when the Amazon Basin came out, I had very high expectations. They did not disappoint! I am very sorry to read someone had a bad experience because this is my favorite cigar over the last 5 or 6 years since I did a tour of Central America and had fresh hand rolled cigars.

Well, here is my take on this. I was looking for a long time to find these cigars, and finally, I got the box, which was on sale here at Atlantic. Here is my review: First, its a beautiful looking cigar and it smells awesome, dry fruits, sweetness, and cedar on prelight; however, once I lighted one, the disaster started. It started as a bitter, salty, sour taste with hints of bubble bath soap and nasty pepper on retrohale. Second third - some french man's colon like the old "Savage" taste added to the "flavor." And last third, the nasty burst of bitter ammonia just added to the bouquet. I was trying to finish it, but I put it away when I started gagging on this thing. Chocolate - shmocolate... In conclusion, it feels like I just ate a bar of soap, drank french perfume, and breathed a lot of ammonia fumes. I think maybe I've got a bad stick or CAO just rushed this batch to sale. These cigars must be aged and aged and aged until they become smokable, and hopefully, it will improve in time.
