CAO Italia, Full and spicy!
When one thinks of Italy, premium cigar tobacco is usually not the first thought. But for CAO, so accustomed to pushing the boundaries of flavor, this is where they discovered some very unique tobaccos. This particular tobacco is grown in the Benevento region of Italy and offers an enjoyable sweetness backed ever so slightly by a toasted earthiness. When combined with a lusciously dark Habano-seed wrapper leaf grown in Honduras and a select blend of fine filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and Peru, the result of this intricate 4-country blend is an incredibly rich, robust, and complex cigar.
CAO Italia has been named one of the Top Cigars of the Year by Cigar Aficionado, and recently received a well-deserved 92-rating, noting: "creamy... lush with fruity, ripe apple notes, molasses and brown sugar. The finish is long and spicy. Tasty and bold."
For a limited time, enjoy a CAO Flathead Metal Ashtray (worth $100) for just $10 more with any qualifying CAO box purchase.
An ultra-premium ashtray from an ultra-premium brand. It's rare that something as simple as an ashtray makes my head turn, but the first time this treasure was walked through our offices I nearly gave myself whiplash from the speed of my double-take. Absolutely stunning, heavy in the the hand, perfectly shaped grooves to accommodate up to four cigars at once, easy to clean, burn resistant — oh yeah, this baby is everything you'd want and more. The CAO Flathead logo emblazoning the bowl is just the cherry on top of this oh-so-awesome cake.
