Description

The CAO Italia Gondola Torpedo is a cigar crafted to 6.10 inches in length and a ring gauge of 54. Boxes of 20 cigars deliver a delightful, uncommon smoke that is finding adherents among those looking for something a bit new and fresh, though not too far from the mainstream of their favorite stogies. The makeup of the CAO Italia Gondola brings together a global blend of quality leaves that feature the richest flavors their respective countries have to offer. Italian tobaccos give the cigars their distinctive sweet and spicy flavor, reminiscent of your favorite pasta sauce that boasts a blend of both garlic and cilantro. Grown from Habano seed the filler leaves are juicy with medium to full-bodied flavor and medium strength, being comprised of a mix of Peruvian and Nicaraguan leaves, too. This is a nice mix for the connoisseur who wants to relax with a great cigar and await the evolution in complexity this smoke delivers. If you are looking for comparisons the Ashton VSG or the Alec Bradley Family Blend are two that come to mind, but there’s nothing quite like smoking a CAO Italia Gondola.

Delicious Stages

Review by big red on September 20, 2011




This is a totally delicious smoke, a top 3 for me this year. The CAO Italia Gondola is a full-flavored and complex cigar that starts out spicy, with notes of cayenne pepper. It mellows considerably in the second third with toasted bread and cocoa highlights arising. The last third is the best with rich Italian espresso and cream to make a perfect ending.

Expanding my CAO Roster

Review by JP Money on February 03, 2011




CAO Brazilia Samba cigars set a high standard for me when it comes to CAO. Eager for another tasty option, I tried the CAO Italia Gondola. I’ve had 3 and while not as good as the Samba to me yet, I’m getting familiar with them and enjoy each one more than the last. Tighter in the draw, but not a pain to smoke. The flavors are spicy, like nutmeg or ginger. Some pepper for effect. I’m happy! Rating: 8.1
