Hold on tight.
CAO was firing on all cylinders when they released the Flathead. The high-octane blend received incredible ratings and the highest score given to a 6” x 60 by Cigar Aficionado EVER, and even took home the title of third best cigar of the year in 2015. The meaty box-pressed blend was inspired by the world of hot-rods and pin-ups, and featured smooth, full bodied flavors and flawless construction. Now the team at CAO have supercharged the Flathead, with the same blend but a unique fermentation process.
The Flathead V19 utilizes the same Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, Connecticut habano binder, and Nicaraguan & Dominican fillers, but cuts the fermentation time. The result is that the leaves retain their native, natural flavors, which are then refined through longer than usual aging. On paper the V19 looks exactly the same as the original Flathead, but make no mistake: these cigars are in a class of their own. Deep molasses and leather notes will take your palate on a joy ride that you won’t ever want to end, so grab a box and light up any time you need to rev your engines.
