CAO Italia Gondola
CAO Italia Gondola cigars are exquisitely made figurados blended with an Italian-grown Habano leaf and Nicaraguan & Peruvian longfillers capped in a tawny, sweet-smelling Honduran wrapper. The smoke is rich, earthy and remarkably creamy. Medium to full-bodied with a sensational aroma, too.
With a beautiful band and gorgeous oily wrapper the Italia always proves its versatility. While on its own it is a nice med-full bodied smoke, it seems to be lacking something. Pair this with a good lager, single malt, or cup of coffee it really shines. The Italia has a smooth, rich, leathery smelling smoke with a slight apple finish. I've had some burn problems with these. They probably need to age more, but they never seem to last in the humi. My favorite of the CAOs.
Truly the best experience of an affordable smoke I have had. It has left me commenting every time I bite into this full bodied beauty. A distinguished flavor like all of the quality cigars CAO rolls but clearly the most balanced. Like every great cigar the flavor matures as you smoke and has left me burning my fingers on every time I partake.
Great cigar while golfing that everyone should try. I like a medium smoke on the course and this 1 does everything it's supposed to do.
