Back to the Basin
CAO Amazon Basin was one of the most popular new CAO cigars in years. It was only a matter of time before a follow-up was announced. And lucky for all of us CAO fans, turns out that this Amazon experiment is bound for a trilogy! Enter phase two: CAO Fuma em Corda, a full-bodied blend like no other.
The word “unique” gets thrown around a lot. But here, it’s the real McCoy. The tobacco used in the Fuma em Corda is bound by tightly wound ropes and left to ferment, a technique native to the tobacco farmers of Brazil. The Braganca tobacco inside undergoes a different process — compressed and fermented for six months into tightly wound tubes. Add a Honduran Oscuro wrapper and Cameroon binder and you’ll find a woody flavor, with spiciness and an incredibly long finish. Our recommendation? Jump aboard this posthaste, or get left behind.
