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.
That is what you'll have if you get your hands on this cigar. Wow, that's all I need to say.Everyone knows the best cars, best food, best wine, best cheese, best fashion, best women, etc comes from the boot. hey, maybe their tobacco is right up there along with everything else.ciao
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.
This was an awesome stick from start to finish. Great flavor, good burn, good draw & gave me about 1.5 hours of pure enjoyment! Those who don't like it don't enjoy a fine cigar.
I had a few of these left in my humidor box and was making a trip home to spend a few days with my old man. We burned them on the back porch and the weather was nice and cooperative at around a mellow 60 degrees. These sticks smelled amazing when first lit and tasted even better. I smoked my down to the nub, and then something unexpected happened; when I stood up, I had the spins. This cigar basically kicked my ass with a wallop of a nicotine buzz. My only complaint was that despite my best efforts, it went out twice on me and had to be lit again. Other than that, it was the perfect cigar.
