The CAO Escaparate Costa Rica Cigar is unlike any cigar you’ve smoked before. It is a medium bodied cigar that has a naturally fermented, chocolate-brown Costa Rican Maduro wrapper, an Ecuadorian binder and aged Nicaraguan filler grown in Esteli, Jalapa and Condega.
The CAO Escaparate Costa Rica Cigar is a smooth earthy cigar that is one of the most complex, flavorful cigars that I’ve ever smoked. The aroma is sweet with a woody note but the flavor offers notes of coffee and earth with a slight undertone of spice. Impress your friends with this super premium, ultra exclusive cigar.

I've been a lover of good Costa Rican cigars since my first CAO L'Anniversaire maduro belicoso in 1998 when they were made in Costa Rica. Those great Costa Rican cigars have been missing since CAO moved production to Nicaragua. When I first lit up this Escaparate Costa Rica Belicoso, I was pleasantly surprised with the wonderful, smooth, full flavor and easy draw. By the halfway point, the burn was running, the cigar mushy, hot, and the flavor unpleasant. It looked as if the binder wasn't burning, just the filler. I couldn't finish. Same thing, though not quite as bad, with the second cigar. Damn
