Review Notes: This cigar was a most unique and interesting experience. Burn and draw were very good. Flavors of spicy cedar and red peppers delivered w/ some notes of anise. Finish was a little bitter at start, but then mellowed into a very balanced smoke.

Review Notes: Med-Full flavor, Very nice construction with even burn. I smoke 3 of these cigars so far and I really enjoyed them. All tasted like complex flavors of Chocalate and coffee. My other fav's are The Edge, Brasilia, and Hoy de Nicaragua.

"Powder Puff"

Review Notes: Nice looking stick, excellent construction, but it scores pretty low on taste-- not BAD flavor, just not very interesting. Mild to medium body. After the Punch Gran Puro I had last night, this is a powder puff. Not very inspiring for a premium smoke with a CAO price tag.

"On the floor"

Review Notes: I was very excited to try this new line. I love the Brazilia and had very high hopes of the Italia. I was expecting something even more than the Gol! Suprisingly the Italia is not as smooth as you would expect from CAO. I found that this cigar never mellowed out and remained very spicy and harsh. Very nice draw, but it also had burn problems half way through. Another note, is that this cigar is very strong. Call me a light weight, but I never had a problem with the Brazilia and this one put me on the floor, literally. Will not smoke again.
