Let 'em ROLL!
What better way to enjoy an amazing cigar, then to kick back with your best buds, a refreshing beverage, and a solid game. Way back when, at the invention of the game, both dice and dominos were made from ivory and at times, animal bones. That was the inspiration that CAO brand ambassador Rick Rodriguez used for his newest creation with the Nicaraguan-based CAO blending team. Both the name, CAO Bones, and the various size names reflect terms commonly found in a game of dominos.
Hailing from the STG Estelí factory in Nicaragua, Bones uses a dark Connecticut broadleaf wrapper to encase a Connecticut shade binder and a filler combination of Nicaraguan tobacco, Dominican Piloto Cubano and Honduran leaf that together produce a solid burning, medium- to full-bodied profile that even the most experienced aficionado can enjoy. CAO is so sure this blend will have you in relaxation mode that they are including a set of dice to get the game started within every box purchased. Go on CI Nation, grab some friends and let those BONES roll!!

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.”
