Review Notes: I have picked these up now and then for about a year now. The first few I smoked had about a week or two of age on them. Needless to say I wasent impressed. The one I just got done smoking had a over a year of age on it and let me tell you either they are inconsistent. (could be) , the older ones werent rushed like they are now. Or age really makes a diff with these. Yes I had to keep touching it up here and there but, the flavor is out of this world. I've never tasted such a toasty & creamy cigar like this one. There was a strong aroma and taste of wallnuts through out. Wish it was a bigger cigar and I was still smoking it. The draw was not loose like some of the others, but I did notice that the band was loose, like after a while the cigar has compressed a little bit. Still to pricey and would like to wait only about a month instead of a year to have the same experience.

Review Notes: Having enjoyed the Brazilia line and other CAOs, I figured I would give the Italia line a whirl. Very loose draw on this one, and a burn that needed to be touched up throughout the cigar. Earthy flavors in this mild-medium smoke, nothing special and certainly one-dimensional. If I want a CAO again, I'll smoke a Brazilia.

Review Notes: Looks pretty average, nothing special. No veins is a plus. Burned with a uniform white ash. Lots of smoke. Easy draw. Got some oak, forest floor, hay, and citrus hints. Smoothed out after the first inch, but burn got erratic and needed several corrections throughout. Finished unfavorable with a bitterness in the back and top of my mouth. I wasn't a huge fan of the brazilia and didn't find this any better.

Review Notes: I expected a bit more from this cigar. While the stick produced plenty of smoke and had a good draw, the flavor was not as complex as I was expecting. In addtion, several burn problems needed to be corrected. A good cigar it is but not a memorable one.

Review Notes: I tend to like CAO cigars, but not this one. This is the worst CAO I have ever smoked, by far. I had been wanting to try this one out for quite some time (I purchased this one from a member of the forums). Never again. The wrapper had very small cracks throughout and the taste was just BAD.
