"This cigar was simply phenomenal. An incredibly unique flavor profile that maintained a perfect balance throughout and was supported by a flawlessly constructed cigar and perfect draw. The flavor transitions were massive in the first third and, although the evolution showed down the further it smoked, the flavors of honey, green apple, buttered toffee, and cream were bright, crisp, and balanced. I would absolutely seek this cigar to smoke again." -Vance T. (Vance)
"The flavors were plenty good just a few unwanted notes that didn't go well with the rest of the profile. Draw was great, construction on the other hand and burn suffered greatly. Depending on price point I would smoke again." -Ryan H. (Ryan H.)
"To me… this was a super straightforward smoke, not deviating much at all from its primary profile of medium-bodied smoky, earthy, and graphite notes. Coupled with the seven-inch length, it made for an experience that was simply linear and a bit boring at times. Coupled with subpar construction, this caused the burn and draw issues as well. Unfortunately, I cannot see myself reaching for another one of these cigars." -John A. (Bostoneo
The company German Engineered Cigars has announced a new line of cigars, NN. If the name doesn't sound familiar it's because this is a relatively new company. You may remember seeing their first line of cigars to the U.S. market RVGN Rauchvergnügen. The company German Engineered Cigars was created a few months ago, and RVGN falls under that umbrella. Also under the umbrella is the KENTRON ashtray project. German Engineered Cigars will continue to distribute the RVGN Rauchvergnügen brand and will introduce more lines in 2021.

"It's not the most complex or exciting cigar ever but for those who lean more towards mild and consistent this fits that profile perfectly. A very easy smoke with a good burn and great smoke production. " -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
"This cigar was a most excellent after dinner cigar. It embodied almost exactly what you'd want from a dessert cigar. No I'm not talking about that artificial sweetness you get from flavored cigars, but instead I'm talking about the richness and perfect body that hits just right. On top of that, it is so well made that I found myself admiring it while smoking it. Definitely the highlight of my day and would not be opposed to picking up more." -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

"This cigar was one of my favorite “larger/longer” formats I have had in a while. Plenty of mild/medium profiles in the beginning and a medium/fuller profile along the backend gave great diversity in the many facets this cigar gave me. Coupled with an impeccable draw, burn, and construction, made this cigar better than the average bear. Foundational notes of cedar, leather, peppery earth, and cream cemented themselves throughout the session in one form or another and was accented with visiting flavors that helped keep this an interesting stick. I truly believe this is a stick that you would enjoy more so than most others for the given profile. Enjoy!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
"This was a very enjoyable cigar based upon flavor and performance. My only complaint is the flavors becoming somewhat muted during the middle portion. I would highly recommend this to any smoker who enjoys bold flavors and has a bit of time to dedicate to the experience. I’d love to pick up a five-pack of these for future enjoyment." -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf
"This was a cigar that I would recommend smoking after a good meal. It offers some consistent flavors, without much change, so you won't miss out on much if you're hanging out with some fellow brothers or sisters at a lounge. I enjoyed the profile, albeit the notes weren't extremely potent though. So keep that in mind as well. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
The original CAO Vision was released in 2007 and was discontinued some years later. That cigar was best know for its packing with a bright white box and illuminated interior. Both of those things are returning for 2020, but with a brand new blend.
