    Another installment of CAO's Amazon series. So far, I liked the original Amazon Basin best, let's see how this one compares.

    A remarkably easy light and draw for this butch-looking cigar.

    I like that you can smoke the "band". Doesn't seem to affect the flavor but it does tend to drop onto my keyboard. O, well...

    This is a great cigar that lives up to me recollection of the original Amazon Basin. I'm definitely going to buy more if these - if I'm not in corona lock-down. Stay healthy, everyone!
