The wrapper is smooth and quite caramel coloured. It is a cigar with few veins and a smooth wrapper. There’s a peculiar sweetness, cherries and red wine vat sweetness. You can pick up hints of honey, some light woodiness and subtle coffee bean scents.
Sweet tobacco scents
Cocoa and mild caramel
Casa 1910 Cavalry Edition As de Oro Dry Draw
This cigar has a tight draw.
Despite the tight draw, the cold draw is good with good flavours. Flavour-wise, you can taste a cherry sweetness and a musky nuttiness over mild cappuccino flavours.
This cigar is very firm and dense while the wrapper is thin. You can notice the density with a deep v-cut.
Casa 1910 Cavalry Edition As de Oro First Puff
Once lit, the As de Oro starts with a tight draw the cigar does release tasty flavours of dark melted cocoa and cappuccino tastes. There is a prominent cherry sweetness, it almost tastes like a dark Shiraz red wine sweetness. Spicy but sweet. The smoke volume is good, but this is a cigar to take your time with.
The flavour is medium-full, the body is medium and the strength is medium. All round the flavours of the cigar are enjoyable. The smoking rate is slow. I am not sure if the brand deliberately created a firm construction to create a cigar which will take time to smoke.
Casa 1910 Cavalry Edition As de Oro Evolution
The cigar flavours are consistent. Due to the tighter draw, the evolution is smooth and subtle. It does make it more complicated to pick up stronger flavour transitions. The tobacco smokes mild but flavourful. For a big toro cigar, it is a super summer evening cigar to take your time with next to the pool. Nuttiness, earthiness, sweetness and cocoa flavours still leed with a little bit of sweetness. The overall experience creates a creamy cigar well worth settling in with on a hot summer night.
As the cigar transitions the flavours become creamier and well blended. There are more hints of black pepper joining the cocoa earthiness. As the cigar evolves, the smoke production increases to create a better retro-hale.

Final Casa Portuguesa & 1920 As De Ora Cigars Conclusion
The cigar burn and draw improve towards the end. There is a lot more smoke production towards the end compared to the start.
The melted cocoa nuttiness and earthiness still lead, but there’s a pungent flavour entering toward the end. It is good to smoke this cigar slower and manage the burning heat. Hints of pepper and sweetness linger throughout this creamy toro cigar.
The finish delivers consistent flavours of melted cocoa, a cherry sweetness and mild notes of creamy coffee. Retrohales have nuttiness with moments of cinnamon, dried fruit and a light spiciness.
Then there is a unique floral flavour and earthiness to the cigar. It's almost like a floral herby note which is unique to a cigar finish. The flavour remains medium-full, the body is medium-full and the strength is medium.
The tight draw contributed to a cigar that took more than three hours to smoke. No puff is too strong. It is a milder blend.
The final smoking time took around three hours.
The wine is big for a Portuguese red wine. Bolder than previous Portuguese reds. The p[airing delivered a blend of melted dark chocolate with a cherry sweetness and an earthy nuttiness.
A wonderful blend of wine and tobacco flavours.
