CAO reaches into the past to bring you an amzing new cigar. When cigar tobacco is cured, it's done by letting the leaf ferment, creating natural heat to mature the flavor. An older method involved taking hands of tobacco and arranging them in a round pile, called a circular pilon. This configuration slows the fermentation process which adds to the flavor. The wrapper is a gorgeous, oily Ecuadorian Habano capa, which conceals a hearty collection of Cuban-seed tobaccos from Nicaragua. The result is a medium-full cigar with sweet wood, roasted nuts, dark chocolate and spices, including a hint of pepper. It's complex, it's flavorful and will keep you coming back for more.
