Review Notes: Thick torpedo- incredible oily sheen to this dense, dark wrapper. Hit me strong and first- stayed strong but not overpowering. Italian tobacco? I really do believe there is an "other" taste here... not nica, not honduras or DM. Perhaps it is the Italian stuff that makes a difference. Its worth the try. Be prepared for the strength however...

Review Notes: Med-Full Bodied. Harsh taste. Ash kept falling off. Good draw good volume of smoke. Expected to smooth out, never did!

Review Notes: Attractive, well made smoke. Very unique fragrance unlit; wrapper smells like basil and oregano (go figure!). Flavors of Espresso, anise, and straw. Big flavor in the start but the finish is a little short and dry. Respectable but not an earth-shaking smoke.

Review Notes: I agree with Frank, the Brazilia line (as well as the Black, MX2 and Maduro) is much more flavorful. This had "lack of burn" problems, "lack of taste" problems, and "lack of smoke" problems. When I think of CAO, I usually begin the Pavlovian drool, but not this time. When I think of Italia, I think of pepperoni and marinara and I think I'll stick with that.

Review Notes: This is one of the best cigars I've had in a year. Complex, tasty, perfect draw and huge volumes of smoke. I look forward to another.
