    Since I like most CAO cigars, I'm happy to try this new Session.

    The tip appears to be sugared. Not a big fan of that.

    The cigar lights easily despite its size but doesn't give off a lot of flavors. Some tobacco and some sweetness - from the maduro wrapper or the sugar dip, who knows?
