Introduce Yourself to an Old Friend
“What do you hear, what do you say?” CAO Consigliere is the new boss in town, so you better pay your respects. Out to make all inferior blends sleep with the fishes, this bold offering from CAO isn’t messing around. Honestly, it reminds me of a blend from a few years back, but I can’t quite put my finger on it… Well, hey, what do I know? Fuggitaboutit!
Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. This perfect Malatov cocktail brings about a robust mixture of earth, sweet hints of cinnamon, and a nutty core. The Brazilian wrapper leaf is stunning on every sample that’s passed my desk, inviting you to indulge in just one more. The price for this one’s on point, the packaging is solid, the flavor is amazing — Bada Bing, Bada Boom!
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.”
