CAO La Traviata Maduro

Grabbed one at my LCS today because it was inexpensive ($7) and never tried one. It was a delicious stick. Gonna go back tomorrow and buy a box to throw in the humi.

These used to be B & M only, couldn't get them on line. My local lounge had them and were my go to stick when I went there. I dare to say the stuff they are selling on line is not the same stick I used to smoke. I still like them, but not the same. Flavor profile is different and QC not as good

I just received samples of the new CAO Bones line. I liked CAO back in the day and these appear to be interesting.

It's just another brand in General's portfolio, now.
