CAO Amazon Anaconda - Cigar Review

Why is there a rope of tobacco where my mouth needs to be? It's sorta nice, actually. A bit of grip-tape as the CAO offering dangles from my smoke-hole in an autumn breeze. I always thought that every yarmulke should have a chin-strap.

As to the Amazon Anaconda...

NOTES:
Rugged eye-balling. Open draw. Seams widen-some ahead'a char. Some dilapidation of cap/shoulder. Verily a slow-burner. Goodly wonkings to line along-the-way on a none-to-even burn. YUGE Smoke out-put, blue off the foot and brown off the head.

Somewhat gritty of mouth-feel. Nigh sharply-thin yet complex finish after immediate-draw richness. Under-tongue zetz. A plain-as-the-nose-on-yer-face fig note in the upper-middlings. Black-peppery front and a backing of sweet-damp earth with cedar, ginger, leather expressions. Back to mids: cocoa and a roasty-toasty 'baccy. Under-belly is mo' dat earth with brown sugar/dark chocolate swirling up and through excelsiorly.

Unique, I shall give it that.

Get yer CAO Amazon Anaconda at Cigars City to-day. 

The fellas there also had something-more to say 'bout this offering: "Among the filler tobacco in the Amazon Anaconda, you'll find Braganca, which is known as a very spicy leaf. Also, you'll find Fuma em Corda, which is tobacco that is braided into cords during the fermentation process. (You might know that term "Fuma em Corda" from the CAO Amazon Fuma em Corda cigars that were released just a few months before the Anaconda)."
