CAO Flathead Steelhorse Handbrake Robusto (4.5" x 50)
CAO’s Flathead series found inspiration in the glory days of hot rodding and became an instant hit with cigar lovers. The folks at CAO were not about to forget about their motorcycle-loving fans, though, and so the CAO Flathead Steel Horse series arrived on the scene. Smooth and balanced with an adventurous spirit, the CAO Flathead Steel Horse Handbrake is a cigar-loving biker’s dream smoke.
The Steel Horse Handbrake is a 4 ½” x 50 cigar cloaked in a Connecticut Habano Grueso wrapper that shelters a Brazilian Arapiraca binder and a filler blend of Dominican, Honduran, and Nicaraguan tobaccos. While the well-made cigar sheds the box press of the original for a more traditional shape, it does feature the line’s trademark “flathead” cap.
The CAO Flathead Steel Horse Handbrake delivers a slightly mellower smoke than the originals yet still manages to offer up a wonderfully rich and complex medium-to-full bodied smoke loaded with scrumptious leather, spice, wood, coffee, and chocolate flavors. Earth and pepper notes give the smoke a bold final third and lasting finish.
The CAO Flathead Steel Horse Handbrake is an approachable connoisseur’s smoke that all can enjoy no matter the level of taste or experience. It is available in easy-to-transport individual boxes and is the perfect cigar for tossing in a saddlebag and hitting the open road.
