caocao la traviata maduro divino

The first impression I get while looking at the Divino is definitely a positive one. The wrapper is very dark and oily. The two decorative bands really stand out against the dark wrapper. The top one showcases the CAO La Traviata label in gold, while the second band is red and gold and lets you know that you are smoking a Maduro. The cigar is firm to the touch and has a few minimal veins. Construction appears to be excellent. The pre-light aroma is earthy, while the cold taste is of spicy pepper.

As far as the burn goes, it's satisfactory overall. The draw is excellent. The ash is light gray in color and solid. The burn does seem to get uneven a bit, but it corrects itself without the need of any help from the lighter. No re-lights are needed.

The La Traviata Maduro does offer some nice flavor, even if it's not too complex. The first third is noted by pepper and earth. The second third seems to get a bit smoother with some sweetness and chocolate. The final third transitions into more pepper and wood. The cigar does have some kick to it, but it's not overpowering.

I can definitely say without fear of equivocation that CAO made a quality cigar with its La Traviata Maduro. I wouldn't say it was the most memorable smoke I have tried, but it was enjoyable in all aspects. The initial impression was favorable, and the burn was good. The flavors that did appear were solid as well. Is it as good as the original? Many probably won't think so. Regardless, it's a worthy choice for fans of Maduro cigars or someone looking for a smoke in the medium to full-bodied range. A single sells for around $4 to $5 each, which is a good value in my opinion. You can find the La Traviata Maduro Divino in boxes of 24 or packs of five.

The CAO La Traviata Maduro Divino earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.
