CAO is bringing back the old ways!
Excellent cigar making is not a new science in anyway shape or form. But, the techniques used have changed over the years. To honor the “old-world tobacco processing methods”, CAO is revisiting the unique old and rustic fermentation process of Andullo tobacco into their newest cigar CAO Arcana Mortal Coil.
Like the name states, this cigar takes a rustic leaf of Andullo tobacco and rolls it into long cylinders wraps them tightly in palm tree pods and hangs them up like a sausage to undergo fermentation for two years. This results in typically sweet, dense logs of concentrated Dominican tobacco. These "logs" are then combined with a Connecticut shade binder and a filler blend of Honduran tobacco from the Jamastran Valley, Nicaraguan tobacco from Estelí and some Dominican Piloto Cubano and encases it all inside of dark Connecticut broadleaf wrapper. The result is a medium-full bodied experience filled with notes of earth, cocoa, creaminess, and black pepper that will give you an extravagant appreciation of the old fermentation ways. Solidly constructed each cigar offers an even burn and ample smoke production from start to finish. Step back in time and experience the coil technique with CAO Arcana Mortal Coil today!
