More info about purchasing CAO La Traviata cigars...
I don’t know about you, but over the past several years it seemed to me that everything CAO did was centered around some kind of gimmick. Neon lighted humidors, barber pole wrappers, car trunk cigar boxes, etc. The focus has been all on the marketing and gimmicks to the point it seemed as if they had lost touch with just making cigars. It showed in the quality of the smokes they were putting out too. Then the go and release the La Taviata. No gimmicks, no fancy boxes or over the top elaborate modernized bands. Just a classic style cigar with a classic looking band and even using an old classic Cuban brand name. Very un-CAO like really. I have to say they should concentrate on the cigar itself more often, but more on that soon.
