CAO Italia

Quinn Expert Picks: Handmade Habanos Expert Pick

As one the only cigars that utilizes Italian-grown long-filler tobaccos, CAO Italia delivers a truly unique experience. The Habano Maduro wrapper shimmers in the light, while also displaying a damp, oily texture. Upon ignition, this medium-bodied beauty burns like a dream, providing thick, creamy smoke. Italia is a profoundly quintessential, yet distinctive CAO experience.

At first take, the cold draw provides sweet aromas with notes of cocoa and cedar, but once lit, this premium exudes saltiness, zest, and a spicy, smoky oak flavor on the finish. This is an essential!
