Review Notes: In my opinion this is the best CAO has to offer and it is excellent. Beefy, medium to full bodied and smooth with a great draw and construction. I like the Brazilia but love the Italia.

Review Notes: Suprised with all the bad reviews. I really like these as they have a good sweet leather taste. I couldn't place the sweet but Travis hit the nail on the head with burnt caramel. You have to put some age on these at least 6 months to a year before they get good. Would be great if they were a few bucks cheaper.

Review Notes: while this is no cuban, it's no slouch either. the CAO Italias mellow with age and the acrid taste many are referring to disapears. it has notes of cocoa and bitter chocolate. it is also nutty and has some spice on the finish. it is on the full side of medium and the burn is outstanding. the wrapper has a nice dark oily sheen. i've been through about 2 boxes and have 2 more that have aged 2 years. it has become my go to cigar. you can find them for $93/box plus shipping online. that's about $5.00/stick, an average price for a premium brand smoke. i urge everyone to let these sit for a while and re-evaluate. not everyone will like the Italias, this i admit, but a dog rocket they are not.

Review Notes: I'm pretty surprised by all the poor reviews on this cigar. It didn't blow me away or anything, but I thought it was enjoyable. I guess I either I lucked out and got a good one or there was a bad batch in circulation recently that everyone else got a hold of. The flavors were nice. Licorice and tea were noticeable at times and some mild burnt caramel notes. The draw and burn were fine. Overall, pretty good. I'm not going to run out and buy a bunch to keep around, but I wouldn't hesitate to try one again.
