God Bless America!
CI and CAO, two rock-ribbed American companies put on this planet to bring you the best premium cigars at the best prices you can imagine. And what better way to tribute the best damn country in the world, than with a tasty and satisfying super-premium? Presenting one of our favorite cigars from this amazing brand, CAO America.
America is part of the now famous World series from CAO. This blend boldly showcases a four country long-filler mix of Dominican, Nicaraguan, Italian, and, you guessed it, American tobaccos. Expect a rich, chewy profile, loaded with cream and oaky nuances. The finish is short and sweet, but don’t be fooled — CAO America is a robust, medium to full-bodied beast.
CAO America cigars received an impressive 92-rating, noting: “A two-toned cigar rolled barber pole style in a light and dark wrapper… sweet and savory flavors come together in the form of roasted meat, sweet cedar, and chocolate.”
A Real Blockhead…
‘Murica, son! Home of hot rods, pin-up chicks, and CAO’s greatest offering: CAO Flathead. Borrowing inspiration from American muscle cars, Flathead not only sports a highly-unique shape, but backs it up with a high-octane blend. Instead of the traditional round or torpedo shaped head, this sleek handmade is completely squared off.
Heavy in the hand, CAO Flathead starts with a well-fermented Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Thick and chewy, the leaf conceals a bevy of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers embraced by a Connecicut Habano-seed binder. Then, each cigar is carefully box-pressed. We could tell you how good it is, or we could say this — CAO Flathead has over 600 customer reviews on CI, averaging 5 stars out of 5, and is the highest rated 60-ring cigar by Cigar Aficionado. Ever.
Named the #3 Cigar of 2015, Flathead received an astounding 95-rating, noting: “From the first light, this seriously squared-off cigar takes off with notes of ripe fruit, leather, and molasses that only gain intensity.”
