They've explores tobaccos from Italy, Colombia, Brazil, the US, among other countries, so why hasn't CAO made a cigar with Mexican tobacco? I'm glad you asked, because that's no longer true because of CAO Zocalo.
This is truly a different kind of blend, not only because of the dark and toothy Mexican San Andres maduro wrapper, but in a very different twist, they pair it up with a Cameroon binder. These two flavorful leaves are wound around a core of zesty Nicaraguan long-fillers to create something unlike any cigar you've ever had before. The wrapper brings a combination of cocoa and roasted nuts into play, while the binder adds nuances of coffee, cedar, and a hint of anise. There's also an underlying sweetness and complex, mellow spices. This cigar only comes in one size - a hefty 6.0" x 60 Gordo, so you're in for a nice, long repast, with a medium to full body that will make you think about your next CAO Zocalo.
