CAO's first and finest.
“The best cigar I’ve had, bar none.” I’m not exaggerating when I say I hear this over and over from my customers. To many of us, the exclusive CAO Black cigar is CAO’s crown jewel, their piece de resistance. That’s a bold statement, considering CAO’s stable includes a number of exceptional cigars. You see, this blend was crafted with extensively aged, top-tier tobaccos, made in extremely limited quantities, and packaged in hand-painted, hand-numbered boxes. The production run was small, a super-exclusive “small-batch” cigar. Needless to say, given CAO’s sterling reputation as a maker of superior cigars, they pulled out all the stops. That’s why hearing the phrase “CAO Black is my favorite cigar” has become so commonplace.
Individually draped in cedar, this classic offers a ton of creamy spice flavors with a subtle hint of vanilla along with an abundance of complex and varied, medium-full flavors. It booms out big, creamy rings, burns perfectly, and mellows nicely after the first 1/3, maintaining a smooth, woodsy flavor with an incredibly clean finish, leaving only a slight, lingering and pleasing peppery taste on the palate. Awesome. Just ask Cigar Buyer Magazine, which awarded CAO Black with an unprecedented perfect score of 10 out of 10, beating out a slew of other top brands.
