The CAO Criollo cigar is a beauty through and through.
To blend such a masterful full-bodied cigar, CAO combines a vintage Criollo ’98 wrapper with fine Nicaraguan long-leaf tobaccos, creating the perfect marriage of Cuba and Nicaragua. The term Criollo (cree-oy-yo), originating in Cuba, actually means simply "native seed." Made in Nicaragua of Cuban-seed tobaccos, the Criollo cigar offers a robust, rich and satisfying taste, a flavor that simultaneously hearkens back to the taste of old Cuba with a nod toward the rising tide of outstanding cigars of Nicaraguan origin. Packaged in gorgeous, commemorative boxes.
