Brazilian Tobacco

I recently had the re-released Alec Bradley MAXX Brazil and was reintroduced to brazilian tobacco. While puffing away it hit me that I never smoked a cigar that used Brazilian tobaccos that I wasn't fond of. They have always been memorable sticks that I smoked many of. But this cigar struck my taste buds so much that it is currently at the top of my list of cigars to smoke all the time. It is filled with flavor that is strong enough but not overpowering and has a finish that is similiar to a hot coffee (cream and sugar) or a dark chocolate candy bar. It sits on my palette and is extremely lip smacking even an hour after I'm done.
I haven't smoked a lot of Brazilian tobacco cigars so I was wondering what other brazilian cigars you all recommend or like.

So far out of tobbacos from Brazil I smoked the CAO Brazilia, Obsidian, La Perla Habana Black Pearl and of course, the MAXX Brazil...

    I have tried both the MAXX Brazil and the CAO Brazil. I would say they were both at the top of my list cigars I have enjoyed.

    . How do you think they compare to each other?

    Read an interesting article in the Most recent lifestyle mag which talks about Hawaiian tobacco from a small family farm. Grown in Hawaii and then rolled in Nicaragua and sold back in Hawaii also.

    I'm not sure how I would put it. The CAO was more on the sweet side and much heavier of a cigar. The MAXX was a lighter almost a bit minty to me at least. It has been a while since I have smoked either. I would fire up a MAXX right now, but it's my last one and it's been resting for a while, and sadly I am a bit sick right now.
