CAO Italia Ciao
CAO Italia Ciao cigars are hefty, 56-ring Robustos handmade with Italian-grown Habano tobacco, plus Nicaraguan & Peruvian longfiller encased in a tawny, sweet-smelling, Honduran-grown wrapper. The result is a rich, earthy and remarkably smooth, medium to full-bodied cigar with a marvelous aroma.
Great cigar, I smoke a lot of Rocky's and perdomos. For the price you can't go wrong. Great everyday smoke. Holds it's ash well and nice draw.
Received this cigar as part of a sampler. Burns very well, holds an ash, and great taste. Heve been buying boxes ever since and very pleased with consistency of smoke.
I've recently gotten back into cigars after a few years hiatus and have been amazed at the number of very good to great cigars I've experienced but this is not one of them. For reference my current favs are Brazilia Gol, Carlos Torano Signature and Virtuoso, My Father Le Bijou. This smoke was bad. Overwhelming astringent black tea and nothing else. I gave it 35 minutes to change my mind and I wish I had that time back. It had been in the humidor at 65% in my "on deck" circle for 30 days. Thank goodness this was in a sampler pack and not quantity.
