Agree completely. I have had terrible smokes from CAO. They lost me

Nothing beats a cigar and homemade lemonade on a hot day.

Don't get me wrong, I still like a bunch of their stuff, but they screwed up on a lot of lines, big time. I still have a handful of Amazon Basin's, Soprano's, Brazilia, Flat Head, etc. that I really like, but their newer stuff is so inconsistent you never know how it'll draw or burn. They're definitely screwing up and it's way too noticeable to ignore.

When in doubt I get a G maduro out. In my all time favorite configuration, box pressed 4.5x50. Always good.

Yup, big conglomerates buying out smaller guys screws things up in every industry. I guess General fired all the good rollers and hired novice rollers for less money. What else explains such a change? The bottom line and board members.
