Today we are revisiting a cigar that made our top ten list of last year. The La Traviata robusto was a site favorite and CAO has released two new sizes for the line. Jon Huber, Director of Lifestyle Marketing, was kind enough to send me a fiver of each size.
Animados: 5 5/6 x 46 (corona gorda)
Favorito: 5 1/2 x 52 (petit belicoso)
Today I’m visiting the Favoritos. This is from the CAO press release:
“CAO La Traviata Favorito
Hot on the heels of multiple ’93’ (“OUTSTANDING”) ratings, and the addition of the 5-5/8″ x 46 Animado,
comes this gorgeous 5-1/2″ x 52 Petit Belicoso. With a suggested retail price of $5.65, this is one cigar
you cannot afford to miss! La Traviata Favorito begins shipping May 1.”
