CAO ICON

From humble beginnings comes a true ‘ICON’.

Cano Aret Ozgener has worked incredibly hard and taken lots of risks to get CAO where it is today. Entering the tobacco industry as a Meerschaum pipe carver, it wasn’t until 1993 that Ozgener entered the cigar business, so he had quite a lot to prove. With the help of Carlos Torano and Nestor Plasencia, CAO released their first Honduran cigar in ’93, and their first Nicaraguan cigar in ’96. It didn’t take long for CAO to claim a legendary reputation as a consistent best-seller, and earn the honor of an ‘ICON’ cigar release.

The CAO ICON joins the ranks of single size ICON releases with a chunky 5.5” x 54 Connecticut Broadleaf-wrapped robusto, containing a punchy but smooth mix of Dominican & Nicaraguan long-fillers. This is a bold, hearty stick that'll be good as soon as they hit your doorstep or after a few years of aging, with a profile loaded down with oaky, earthy nuances and notes of cocoa, cedar, and coffee. CAO is a dedicated cigar company, and the ICON represents the best of their talents to date. Pick up a box, and tip your hat to true ‘ICON’.

Turned out to be a great cigar
1st one, fresh out of the box, didn't burn very good, very uneven, didn't smoke that great either. It felt loosely rolled, but after 2 weeks in my humidor, whole different story, it felt tightly rolled, smoked excellent, burned excellent, very smooth cigar. It pairs well with scotch or bourbon.

Enjoyable Maduro smoke!!
Good flavor with a nice easy draw. This is a really good smoke that burns even and blends well with French Brandy. I'll buy more of these bad boys.

The CAO Icon is a very enjoyable cigar. I have ordered a few boxes and each box has been very tasty. If you are a fan of CAO cigars this is a good one.

Hit and Miss
These sticks are ok, but they have been hit and miss on the draw, mostly tight. Pretty stout but not as much flavor as I'd expect from CAO.

I very much enjoyed this
I very much enjoyed this smoke and intend to buy more. Smooth, rich flavor with a hint of sweetness. Burned evenly and slowly. Would love to see the same combination of tobacco in a bigger cigar.

This was a lot smoother then what you would think. Usually a cigar this dark would be very bold. Nice flavor.

Nice smoke. At first, for me anyway, it was a little on the heavy side. However after the first one, I came around and looked forward to the end of the day for my next smoke. I really enjoyed the box.

CAO Chow Chow
What can I say it’s a CAO..... Instant classic.... of all the ICONs that just appeared the CAO is the best with its dark leathery wrapper you know it’s gonna have some peppery chocolate notes all in a quality wrapper - guess what no disappointment here!

You will need a box!
Bold yet smooth! CAO is my go to and these are right there with Flatheads. Coffee, wood notes, with a tiny sprinkle of floral/fruitiness. These don't disappoint!

Decent cigar
I was looking for an alternative to the MX2, and this fills the void between that and lighter cigars. I'm pleased with the medium+ strength and good flavor profile...all at a reasonable price.

Took me by surprise
First of all I am never disappointed with Cigars International. Second these CAO Icons are amazing. What a smooth burn and great taste from start to finish.

A very rich and smooth cigar. Much like the Flatheads I always smoke. Well worth my money. I have ordered another 2 boxes of them.

I like a tasty medium
I like a tasty medium to full cigar with a glass of whiskey in the early evening while gazing out at the lights of Waikiki from my balcony and this cigar fits the bill every time, ALOHA

Try one, it’s a nice cigar !
I’m not good at flowery descriptions of taste. Suffice to say I get mocha, wood and some spice. In any case the construction is great, burn nice and straight, draw good. A really nice cigar, try it I think you’ll like it.
