CAO La Traviata Maduro Luminoso Cigar Review

This 4.5×50 stick features a very dark brown firm wrapper with a thick oily slightly toothy feel, small veins, tight invisible seams, large double cap and faint cedar aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful medium-full bodied smoke output showing flavors of a slightly sweet meaty earth with an oily thick finish. The first third burns perfectly taking the flavors even bolder pushing full. The mix is a quite intense pepper especially on the finish, while the core is a sweet earth and touch of creamy leather just on the draw. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 25 minutes, flavors are very consistent, performance is perfect and the ash holds for a solid 1/2 of the cigar. Ending at the hour mark burn time was impressive and as I thought the whole experience was the same from start to finish – just fine by me! No strength, all flavor. Thank you very much to General Cigar for sending this sample in for review!
