CAO LX2

Following the theme of April being “Favorites Month” for me I present the CAO LX2 Robusto. This cigar isn’t rare or hard to find but it has been in my regular rotation since the day it hit shelves. The CAO LX2 has delivered the strength and flavors with a consistency that makes me keep going back to them. The basis for choosing my favorites has been on quantity as that seems to be a solid non-objective metric of what my cigar smoking preference is. (Thanks to Skip for making that point a while back as it leaves little room for debate.)

The month of April is a month that is filled with many memories for me and seeing as it is my birth month I’ve decided to set the theme for this month’s posts as “favorites”.  These posts will be filled with my “go to” cigars, they may not be glamorous but they are for one reason or another cigars that I tend to smoke often due to them being my favorite.  With the stage set in no particular order this is my first “favorite” or “go to” cigar.

Almost a year ago I made my first trip back to Florida to visit friends and family.  During this trip I made a journey to Bonita Springs with Tom and Reggie to visit Bonita Smoke Shop.  While there I took advantage of the opportunity to pick up some of cigars from their Value House Blend line, little did I know I would find what would become one of my favorite cigars, the Bonita Smoke Shop Value House Blend Maduro No. 3.
