    Amen brother. One of my go-to, always keep on hand, buy multiple bundles when they're on sale cigars.

    Agreed 100%, stellar smoke. The flavor profile is nothing short of amazing. As I look back at my cigar journal, this was the second cigar I ever smoked. I still sing its praises to anyone who will listen.

    Thanks to you guys, I have the stick planned for my next sit down session.

    GOL!

    I've never had the Brazil, but if it's anywhere near as good as the CAO Amazon Basin I definitely want to try one.

    It's funny how everyone has different taste.  I really did not like this stick.  I have tried it two or three times and still can't warm up to it.

    I like the America by CAO, but the Brazilian is no Bueno for me.

    I prefer the Extreme but the Brazilia is a close second.

    been a long time since i had a brazilia.....IIRC it was one of the very first "premium cigars" i ever smoked (along with the cao visions,, and nubs which were brand new release at the time) 

    gonna have to grab a brazilia now.
    thanks for giving me an excuse to go to the shop @skydiverD lol

    * I have a new address as of 3/24/18 *

    The brazilia  is a classic.  I enjoy them just as much now as I did when I first was into cigars.  Not many cigars remain in the "top" list as tastes change, but these certainly do.  Something about this cigar is just right.  

    If I remember correctly, the La Palina black has a Brazilian wrapper (maybe not the same as CAO), but it is a similar cigar that is definitely worth trying if you like the Brazilia.

    I've really been enjoying the Extreme.  I've had bad luck with Brazilias being plugged.

    Hmm. Haven't had a plug yet but only smoked a handful. I am looking forward to trying the extreme as well as the Italia.

    Liked the Brazilias a lot but miss the piranha size.

    The Brazilia is a stellar stick.  One of my first go to's even before my Melanio run.  Have not had one in a while and saw a half dozen in the humi the other day.  May have to break one out.  Will be interesting to se what a year plus does for these. 

    Life is too short to smoke bad cigars!!!

    Just smoked my first Brazilia.  Wow! That was tasty!  It's slightly sweet (but nothing like infused) so I'm not sure if I'd want it with a beer, but since I was drinking coffee, it was perfect.  I got two in the CAO sampler I bought.  Gonna have to look for a deal on a 10+ bundle.

    After first seeing this thread a week ago. I grabbed a selection of sticks to bring to the beach this week and one was a Brazilia. This was a the result of a trade or bomb. I am going to try to this it evening.
  • OneisnoneOneisnone PAPosts: 404 ✭✭✭✭
    This was not meant to be today. I had some time this afternoon and sat on the deck with a second cup of coffee and lit the CAO good start. That's where it went south. The stick, which had been in my humidor for months, (not purchased by me) was cracked in several places along the wrapper and got unwieldy quickly. Had to abandon after about 5 mins. On my list to revisit in the future.

    I might be the guilty culprit of that bomb Mike. I know I bombed 1 or 2 of these out a little while back. Can't remember to whom. Bummer that it flaked on you. Bought them all from a good B&M and the rest of them smoked like a dream. Just goes to show ya, any given stick,at any given time.....  LOL

    And if it wasn't from me, well then ignore all that bunk I just said above. ;)

    I did not dust for finger prints, so we are good. You are correct this happens to everyone now and then. That will not stop me from trying it again.

    I've heard a lot about this cigar from @jarubla but haven't tried it yet. Sounds like I'm going to have to soon :)

    I had it with a bourbon barrel aged porter(Im a homebrewer) and it worked very nicely. It complimented the chocolate notes in the porter vry well.

    I've only had one but I really enjoyed it, I have another but I have separation anxiety whenever I get to the last of any of my smokes. I'll probably have to get some more so I can enjoy it :)
