"Should have been cheaper"

Review Notes: This one lit nice and burned even. The taste was nothing to die for. Cigar looks nice, and built well. It had a nice draw, but left an acidic aftertaste on the tongue. It would make a good $3.00 daily smoke.

"Not good at all"

Review Notes: What an experience. It looked very nice, and I had high hopes. The draw was really tight so I had to keep cutting until I took nearly an inch off of this thing before I could smoke it without feeling like my jaw would dislocate every time I took a puff. The flavor was very reminiscent of tea with milk. Extremely mild, with a hint of a floral undertones. About halfway through, the burn became very uneven, and I had to start puffing like mad to keep this from going out. After the second relight, I threw this away with about a third of the stick left. Worth almost seven dollars? Hardly. I was disappointed with this one.

"Flavorful"

Review Notes: I am not a big CAO fan, this is a good smoke. I have not had much luck the Brazilla. The construction was descent and full of creamy, medium bodied floral smoke. It got real hot at the end (last two inches) and I had to put it out. I would consider buying more and aging them for a while.

"Bleh!"

Review Notes: I like most CAO's. I have a box of Brazilians aging in a humi, nice even as a younger smoke. I've also enjoyed 4-5 others (although the Sopranos cost an arm and a leg...pun intended). These Italias, however, are one of the worst dog rockets I've ever had. Bitter, acrid, nasty...kinda like my ex wife. I'd sooner spend time with her than smoke another one of these.

"A Classic CAO Cigar"

Review Notes: CAO makes great products and this is no exception. Beautifully rolled and constructed. Great burn. Medium flavor with somewhat earthy undertones. If you are a CAO fan, or a Torano fan (most CAOs are made by Torano as I understand it) then you might give these a try. Not exactly my favorite flavor profile but it might be yours.
