    I agree, they are nice but I've had a lot of draw issues with italia and brazilians.

    in retrospect, the draw was a little inconsistant... it would get pretty loose at times...

    Brazilia is a personal favorite of mine! Very tasty, smooth, TON of smoke... cant say I have had any draw issues. Maybe Ive just been lucky, but these are in my personal Top 5.

    i've had one cao brazilia back when i first started becoming more involved with cigars - i thought it was so good tasting that i bought another and have been wanting to age it - i've tried the italia too and had some burn/draw issues - definitely would recommend the cao brazilia... may have to pick up the weekend blitz to try out the house brand

    I enjoyed the Brazila, but I prefer the Italia. Less spice in the Italia, in my opinion... but both are very good cigars.

    I brought one to a friends last night and had him smoke it. It was delicious.

    I'm a fan, don't get me wrong... But I think I actually like the Ccom Brazilian Label better... and I am aware of my typo in post heading they are Brazilia not Brazilian

    Not that there's anything wrong with a Brazilian.

    I've had one of each, liked them both, but I found the CAO a little better. The wrapper was of higer quality, thicker and burned more evenly. And it had a little sweeter profile from the wrapper, while maintaining a good spice and earthy flavor. I've got a few of each left lying around that I'll get to this spring and we'll see how it goes.

    more depth of flavor too IMHO

    I really like the Brazilia. MX2 is another of my favorite CAOs. I haven't had any burn issues that I can recall, but seems like everybody catches a bad stick every now and then. IMO I would go Brazilia slightly ahead of Italia, agian that just shows how tastes are subjective.
