  • CAO Arcana Mortal Coil – Limited Release

    $190.00

    CAO Arcana Mortal Coil – Limited Release is a very special entry in this great company’s portfolio.

    Arcana Mortal Coil is a bold and bodacious blend featuring Andullo tobacco. This technique is a unique, old-world  Dominican Republic aging process. This method of tobacco curing has survived the test of time because of the amazing qualities it imparts. Not only does it amplify the strength of the leaf, but also enhances the aroma to tobacco.

    The results? How about Cigar Coop giving it a 90 rating and Blind Man’s Puff scoring it an astounding 95!

  • CAO New Age: Flathead

    $39.57$265.46

    CAO New Age: Flathead is still one of this company’s most popular cigars, HANDS DOWN!

    CAO introduced the Flathead into the marketplace in 2015 and it received 90+ ratings immediately! This solid medium to full bodied cigar is a box pressed beauty. It’s dark oily wrapper encloses a terrific blend of fillers and binders that yield a great open draw, slow burn and robust complex taste.

    When Cigar Aficionado rated it an astounding 95, everybody took notice. Their review still stands.  “From the first light, this seriously squared-off cigar takes off with notes of ripe fruit, leather and molasses that only gain intensity as it smokes.”

  • CAO World: Brazilia

    $85.46$179.82

    CAO’s World Series has been a huge success bringing us cigars using the best tobacco from many countries.

    This highly rated Brazilia edition continues this experience by using the finest Brazilian Maduro wrapper leaves cut from the top of the plant and then triple fermented. The result is awesome.  What makes it stand out is that it’s a cool burn to the finish.

    Over 20 years ago Cigar Aficionado rated this blend’s Torpedo a very respectable 91. Their description still holds up. “A dark, oily cigar with a beautiful torpedo tip. It has an easy draw, burning with a rich aroma. The smoke is complex, with an earthy, floral flavor and a toasty, nutty quality. Full bodied, with a long, toasty finish.”

    CAO Classic: Pilon

    $138.42$179.82

    CAO Classic: Pilon continues to be one of this company’s best sellers for almost a decade.

    Pilon gets its name from the fermentation technique that goes back to 1800s Cuba. Skilled workers called piloneros used a slow, 18-month fermentation technique using smaller round pilons instead of today’s huge square ones. The result is an enjoyable smoke producing a complex medium to full bodied flavor with a great blend of sweetness and spice. In fact, when Blind Man’s Puff recently revisited this cigar, their rating went from 91 to 93!

  • CAO Arcana Firewalker

    $55.00$191.99

    The CAO Arcana Firewalker series is another unique selection focusing on old-world processing methods and limited production.

    This very special blend utilizes a proprietary “chincagre” fermentation process that’s pretty impressive. The filler, which grows in Nicaragua’s Mastepe region, is assembled into a pilón and then buried in the volcanic soil for two months. After that, the tobacco goes to the factory for nine months of secondary fermentation.

    The result is a smooth, mellow medium bodied smoke possessing  complex flavor notes of  earth, leather, dried Fruit and white pepper. If you’ve never tried one of these very special cigars, what are you waiting for. They won’t be around forever!

    CAO New Age: MX2

    $118.44$197.82

    MX2 is still one of the top maduro cigars being rolled today and available on a limited basis throughout the year.

    In fact, this edition was produced almost 20 years ago to achieve one purpose; to test the capability of your taste buds! This dark, oily vitola achieves its goal via a five country blend of fillers and binder with a serious twist. Underneath the ominous looking USA grown Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper lies an even darker Brazilian Maduro binder leaf.

    You can expect an open draw yielding aromatic smoke and a tight ash for starters. From start to finish, this medium to full bodied cigar is slow burning producing undertones of sweetness, spice and espresso.

    CAO New Age: Flathead Steel Horse

    $158.22$197.82

    CAO New Age: Flathead Steel Horse is a follow up to the very popular original Flathead series.

    This complexly blended cigar is wrapped in a proprietary Connecticut Habano Grueso [meaning thick] leaf featuring tobacco from four countries containing Brazilian Arapiraca as the binder along with Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos comprising the filler. In short, this is an entirely different cigar from the original Flathead. As a bonus, each cigar is in it’s own individually box.

    The result is a medium to full bodied box pressed cigar with uniquely smooth flavor notes. Think roasted coffee beans, sweet raisins and bits of peppery spices for starters. Hey, don’t take our word for it. With Cigar Coop scoring it a 90 and Blind Man’s Puff at 93, we think you’ll agree that Steel Horse is another winner for CAO.

    CAO Classic: Gold

    $83.21$176.22

    CAO Classic: Gold is the first cigar this legendary company created.

    In the height of the “Cigar Boom’ of the 90’s, CAO added this line of cigars to their offerings. Until then, they were known for pipes, humidors and other smoking accessories. When this cigar hit the streets, Cigar Aficionado’s review then still holds true today. “A silky, smooth wrapper on a well-made medium bodied cigar. It is earthy, with wood and sweet spice notes.” Oddly enough, in 2109 they rated this blend a score of 91. No doubt the CAO Gold was a winner then and is still pleasing smokers today.
