Review Notes: This cigar was smooth and oaky with maduro overtones throughout but not terribly complex. It had a slightly irregular burn but was otherwise pretty consistent. It was med+ in body but definitely not full-bodied. Smooth to the nub.

Review Notes: I've been a staunch Brazilia fan, being my favorite CAO. Thats changed, this CAO really hits the mark for me. Medium to full bodied smoke with tons of smoke. Perfect draw and razor sharp burn. It has a very subtle sweetness with floral notes and some other stuff I'm crazy about. A big meaty stick with a dark beautiful wrapper. A definate go to smoke for me..

"Uniquely flavorful"

Review Notes: A colorful band adorns this dark and well-rolled cigar. Other than a slightly firm draw, it smokes extremely well with a consistent, even burn, solid ash, and lots of aromatic smoke; it performs well even down at the last 1 1/2 inch. It's a hearty smoke, with earthy spices and dark cherry and licorice flavors; fairly complex and definitely balanced. Medium to full-bodied, with a long tangy finish and a small buzz afterwords. This Italia line, just like every other CAO, has its own distinctive character which I found quite enjoyable.

"Dissapointment"

Review Notes: I've yet to come across a poor constructed or less than attractive cigar from CAO. And this is no exception. The taste, however, was a big dissapointment. Fully bodied but very bitter. I was waiting for something to happen as I drew down the stick but the more I smoked it the more I wanted to put it out. I'm wondering if I got a bad one given all the other positive ratings. In any case, I didn't like the taste at all and don't have any desire to purchase another. I love the Brazilias but these tasted nasty, IMO.
