CAO’s Flathead drew inspiration from hotrods and pinups, and now CAO pays tribute to motorcycle culture with a new extension of the line, Flathead Steel Horse. CAO Flathead Steel Horse hits the open road and hammers down with this powerhouse blend. Boasting the unique Flathead design, this immaculate handmade is a standard parejo with a squared-off head.
CAO Flathead features a 5 country blend that begins with a gorgeous Connecticut Habano Oscuro wrapper, and is finished with a Brazilian Arapiraca binder and Honduran, Nicaraguan, and Dominican long-fillers. Upon lighting, expect a wallop of flavor. This is an enjoyable full-bodied and complex cigar with hearty notes of spice, pepper, chocolate, oak, and coffee. Get yer motor runnin’ and enjoy the ride with Flathead Steel Horse.
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.”
