    Always been a great fan of CAO. Had tried the robusto before, but this is my favourite size. A real gem : great looks, construction, flavour and aroma. Will be a regular in my humidor.

    This is a dark, well constructed, extremely flavorful addition to the CAO cigar lineup. the <i>CAO Italia Gondola</i> burns very evenly with a good draw. One of a few CAO cigars that I would consider to be a full flavored. Very tasty!

    Being an Italian American, I think it's pretty cool that the <i>CAO Italia cigar</i> line is one of the only cigars in the world to include premium Italian leaf in its blend. This cigar is complex and well balanced and you should try one if you haven't yet. The <i>CAO Italia Piazza</i> is my personal favorite size but you may want to try the <i>CAO Italia Novella</i> size first if you are new to the line, as it's a cheaper and a shorter cigar. Ciao.

    CAOs always seem well made to me. This is no exception with a great draw. The dark wrapper is a pleasure to look at and is nice an oily. Starts spicy with cedar notes, with complexity building in the 2nd third, and ending with pleasant nut flavors. Burned it to the nub. Will be fun to see how this evolves after some down time in the humi.
