"Decent smoke"

Review Notes: This is a less spicy version of the Brazilia line, in my opinion. Attractive rich dark brown toothy wrapper with medium veins and no soft spots. Solid construction. Subtle prelight aroma. Easy light. Even burn without the need for correction. Slightly firm draw. White smoke and a dense white-gray ash. Started with pepper and spice, which softened into woody notes by the end of the first third, particularly oak. Then transitioned into an earthy flavor with a hint of burnt coffee in the middle third (still with elements of the initial flavor profile). Finished with a medley of the above with an herbaceous note that became more prominent. All in all, this 1 hour 15 minute smoke was pleasant but did not grab my attention as much as the Brazilia line, which is my favorite from CAO. Still, it was an enjoyable experience and a vitola that was just right for a late afternoon/early evening smoke after a long day at the office. Paired well with a summer lager.

"URP"

Review Notes: I certainly hope this cigar is no indicative of the CAO line. I didnít get past the second inch on this thing and I RARELY put ANY cigar out before the final 2 inches EVER. This cigar embodies every bad stereotypical nuance used to describe cigar smoking, usually by nonsmokers. It smells bad, it tastes bad and lingers forever. On the plus side it has a pretty band.

Review Notes: A nice mild smoke that can be enjoyes anytime. I thought it was less flavorful than other CAO cigars I have smoked but enjoyed. I would smoke again but would buy the brazila or cameroon as my favorites. Had a slight burn problem also.

"Brazillia with punch"

Review Notes: The Italia has good flavor with more body than the CAO Brazillia line. They are obviously designed by CAO to complement each other, the Brazillia is meant to be smooth and flavorful, but if you want a little more spice, you can move up to the Italia. Personally I preferred the smoother flavor of the Brazillia, but both were very good. Unfortunately the Italia had a bit of a burn problem which required a little doctoring before it straightened out. Generally CAOís have flawless construction, so I chalked this one up to an anomaly, and since I smoked it straight from the cigar shop it may have had uneven humidification. Iím going to let the other one I purchased rest in the humi for a while, which should hopefully even out the humidification.

"Overall Very Good but less than expected"

Review Notes: I like the Brazilia line. The Italia is a very good smoke. The main dissapointment was the amount of 'soft spots' in the cigar. It affected the eveness of the burn. The flavor was great and I would try them again... but not as one of my very favorities
