Today I’m smoking the new La Traviata from CAO Cigars. I was lucky enough to win one of the many contests CAO’s Director of Lifestyle Marketing Jon Huber posts on his Twitter feed, and received La Traviata hats and 2 of the cigars as well, which should be arriving at retailers very soon. All 3 vitolas priced at less than $6. I’m smoking the 5″ x 50 Divino.
One of my longest videos at around 23 minutes, but I had a lot of topics I wanted to cover. I talk about the cigar, how cigar manufacturers are using social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, finding new cigar shops when on vacation, and different retail perspectives.
