Review Notes: This surprised me. I Tried another shape in this line years ago and found it just barely OK and not worth the hype. I aged this thick stick about a year and a half. I was rewarded with a meaty chewy yummy cigar. Some very unique notes of something floral, nice spice, wood, mincemeat, and sambouca. I found this to be medium in body. This prince of frugality did not like the $5.75 price tag. If I could get these at about 4-ish I'd buy about ten of them and let them rest a long time. Get some if the price is right and you have room at the bottom of your box.

Review Notes: Great looking, well constructed, and a great value; but in my book it still falls short of the flavor I enjoy so much in the Brazilia line.

Review Notes: It was "The Tale of Two Halves". The Ciao was very delicious for the first half, hints of spice, vanilla, and a few unidentified, but pleasant flavors. Unfortunately the second have not so terrific, it was very mild, and the formerly nice taste was replaced by something that was not good. It's possible this stick got hot toward the finish, I don't know. From the looks and the name of this gar I guess I had unrealistic expectations. Maybe I was thinking there would be expressions of oregano, garlic or olive oil? Anyway, my ratings, especially in flavor are a compromise between the two halves. This cigar is beautiful and I did not experience any substantial burn problems. I was just expecting more - Ciao.

Review Notes: An incredibly well built cigar. Hard as a rock and heavy in the hand. Very even burn with strong, white ash. Draw was pleasantly firm. The flavor started out spicy then mellowed with an aftertaste of pepper which lasted to about halfway through. Notes of coffee and wood and maybe some cream on the aftertaste followed. I did not expect such flavor changes out of a vitola this size and enjoyed it.
