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.

"The second third flavors were well balanced and provided an amazing smoking experience. While the final third initially offered some great flavors, it soon developed a harshness that was difficult to get past. We got off on the wrong foot, however, when the wide open draw prevented the cigar from burning without constant attention in the first third. This most likely led to the acrid notes on the finish." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
"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

"A great mild medium two hour smoke when you have the time to sit back and enjoy a near masterpiece. I wish there was a bit more transitions at the halfway point, however the first and last third really shined and kept my attention to its various rich flavors. I would probably put money down on a box with a great blend like this to see how it progresses over tome for sure!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
Alec Bradley Cigar Co have announced they will be initiating a full-scale re-release Medalist cigar line. The Medalist is cloaked in a golden ‘shade grown’ wrapper grown in Honduras, a Honduran binder and premium long-fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua.
"This was a very good cigar. Strong enough in body to keep me involved, but not overbearing in any sense. I love the semi-sweet chocolate notes that paired with the espresso and wood...right in my wheelhouse. This was paired with black coffee and I couldn't have been happier. Give me more smoke output and I'd be chasing a box." -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"I enjoyed this cigar it kept giving me notes of sweet tobacco, coffee, German chocolate cake, and even some cream soda at the end. This cigar started out nice with the sweetness then let up and brought in the wood and earthy notes, but the sweetness never left and even returned at the end. I will let you know dear readers that this does require some time commitment. I wouldn't suggest you smoke this cigar in the elements unless it's a nice spring or fall day." -Mickey T. (irratebass)

"This was a dynamite cigar! I couldn't have asked for a better smoking experience. The cigar had a lot going on in the flavor dept. First I was greeted with walnuts/pistachio which then moved to caramel, wood, earth/dirt and ended up with a sweetness that coated my lips. I will be seeking these out once I find out what it was. YOU SHOULD TOO." -Mickey T. (irratebass)

"Such an extraordinary cigar to start the new year off on. Bold flavors, amped up strength, flavor transitions, perfect burn, this is definitely a cigar I'd try again. Very anxious to see what this is so I can find some more. As always, thanks for the chance to try this. " -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
