    CAO La Traviata Maduro Review

    CAO La Traviata Maduro “Divino”
    Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro
    Binder: Camaroon
    Filler: Dominican and Nicaraguan

    The La Traviata cigar has a dark oily wrapper with few veins. It is a good looking cigar and once cut and lit the cigar burns evenly.

    First third: First draw tastes of cocoa or chocolate and is very smooth. This is only my second CAO and so far the sweet taste has me interested. Great draw so far and good amount of smoke. I can taste cocoa/chocolate and maybe a little bit of tobacco that’s about it.

    Second third: Still smoking well. A little leather mixed with that ever present and enjoyable chocolate. No touch ups so far and still ample smoke. Also a nice dark gray ash that falls about every inch or so.

    Final Third: More of the same. The cocoa is more pronounced and the cigar is very good. It’s straightforward, requires very little attention and has great taste and has a nice creaminess to it. So far the La Traviata maduro is a very smooth cigar with no harshness or nicotine to speak of. Needless to say I am really enjoying this cigar.

    Final thoughts: This cigar is very good. It has a great chocolate, cocoa taste throughout with great burn and ample smoke. The construction is good with few noticeable veins and dark oily sheen on the wrapper. I am glad I bought a bunch of these as I’m sure they will only get even better with some time in the humidor.

    This is one of my five favorite cigars and in this size. Just a warning. Cao was purchased about a half year ago, and if you want to insure supply in case they change the line, I would suggest putting some down.
    I have eight boxes sitting in a marine container with beads in a uhaul. One cigar I never want to let go, I think their that good. I especially love the draw of this vitola with a punch cut.

    I was cleaning and rearranging my humidor today and I found one CAO La Traviata Maduro Torpedo and I let it up. It was 5 1/2 X 50 or maybe 52. I have no idea where and when I bought this delicious cigar. I am looking all over the net and I cannot find it anywhere. Any Idea where to get it?
