CAO was one of the original boutique-blend cigars. A pioneer in the art of creating cool concepts and unique flavorful blends, the Nashville-based company created a line of fantastic cigars inspired by classic hot-rod cars of the 1950s and ’60s. CAO Flathead is a unique medium-to-full-bodied smoke made with aged Nicaraguan long-filler tobaccos, a delicious Connecticut Habano binder, and a wrapper of dark, chocolatey Connecticut broadleaf Maduro with notes of cocoa, espresso, and cedar. Rolled in a very unique shape with a flat head as the name states, each vitola is derived from a different part of a car’s inner workings. The V660 received particular praise and was rated the number-three cigar of the year in 2015. Rev up your engine and try one of these heavy-duty beauties.
