Who doesn’t remember The Sopranos? CAO launched a cigar label with the show’s namesake and eventually changed it to Consigliere, Italian for an adviser. My Consigliere Associate measured 5×52, right in the robusto wheelhouse. Sweet and rich notes of chocolate cake arrived on the cold draw. Chocolate continued into the first third, disappearing into campfire. The midpoint brought leathery notes that hung around until the caramel landed in the final third. Spices in the retrohales could have played better with the other flavors. Overall, the profile was simple but enjoyable.
