CAO’s best-seller gets a wild new spin off.
CAO Amazon Basin is a very limited new extension to CAO’s ultra-popular Brazilia blend. Just don’t expect more of the same, because this unique small-batch blend is like nothing ever before.
The special sauce used to create Amazon Basin is a tobacco called ’Braganca,’ a rare tobacco harvested from a remote region in the Amazonian rainforest. It’s really crazy, actually. Everything from its taste to the way it’s cultivated. Grown in a virgin, tropical land in the rainforest and harvested only once every 3 years, Braganca may be one of the most elusive tobaccos in the world. After the tobacco is harvested, it’s rolled by hand into tubes and fermented for 6 months. Then, it must be transported by canoe back to the mainland. Wild in every sense. To create CAO Amazon Basin, this Braganca tobacco was blended with tobaccos from 5 different countries and finished with a dark, Ecuadorian Sumatra ligero wrapper. But despite the breadth of tobaccos contained within, you can still taste and smell the unique Amazonian tobacco almost instantly. An exotic, distinctive taste that’s bold and very unique…unlike anything you’ve ever had before. Additionally, each cigar is finished with a rustic, 100% twisted tobacco ‘band’ that adds another unique touch.
