CAO is known for their all-star lineup of 90+ rated blends that use the finest hand selected premium tobaccos. The company scours the globe to find the rarest and best tobacco from Italy Africa, Peru, Columbia, the Amazon Rainforest, and more, to create exceptional blends not found on any other cigar. In 2015, the company decided to take a giant step backwards with the release of the CAO Pilon Cigars. Turning back the clock, the company employed an old 19th century Cuban method of tobacco fermentation, called the circular pilon. In a traditional pilon, the tobacco is sorted into a giant square stack. In a circular pilon, the tobaccos are meticulously placed in a circular pattern that ferments the tobacco at a slower rate of speed, thus enhancing its maturation and flavor. CAO Pilon Cigars showcase a rare and stunning Ecuador Habano Viso wrapper, surrounding a tasty Nicaraguan binder, and a core of well- aged long filler tobacco from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The cigar is medium bodied, slow burning, and chock full of delicious flavors that includes earth, pepper, coffee, vanilla, and leather, that earned the brand a well deserved 90-rating from Cigar Aficionado.
