CAO Gold Sampler is an amazing chance to try the light and dark side of CAO featuring 2 Maduro wrapper cigars, and also 2 Natural wrapper cigars. This makes for an extremely interesting sampler and smoke; if you would like the chance to taste the difference of what effect a Natural wrapper has to offer to a cigar compared to a Maduro wrapper has to offer; your chance is right here!! Enjoy!
2 CAO Gold (5 x 50) - Rated “outstanding” by Cigar Aficionado CAO gold has garnered a reputation as one of the finest mild-to-medium-bodied cigars in the world. This cigar features gorgeous Ecuadorian Connecticut seed wrapper along with aged Nicaraguan binder and filler. The flawless construction and smooth flavor feature hints of buttery, vanilla, cream and nutmeg.
2 CAO Gold Maduro (5 x 50) - This exciting blend combines the smooth buttery character of CAO Gold with the rich, spicy flavor profile of a maduro wrapper. CAO Gold Maduro features a dark and oily Brazilian Maduro wrapper, paired with well-aged Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. The result is a medium-bodied cigar that loads the palate with a luxuriously chewy texture of smoke, featuring spice, butter, and espresso notes.

I like both - porcupine on 01/09/2017
I bought this sampler with my box of Oliva Melanio Serie V so I could use a coupon and get a discount. So I kind of got these for free hehe. Anyways, the Natural one were exquisite, the Maduro ones, quite good too although I felt them a little bit too much for me.

A big fan of the CAO but this sampler was a major disappointment. There is a difference between bitterness and ammonia and spice. 1 of the 4 was a fair (70) smoke but the other 3 wouldn't have made a 50 rating. The CAO Dark and Stormy, for instance, is a winner all the way around.
