Part of the CAO Classics Series, the CAO Pilon Churchill is a deliciously refreshing tribute to cigar making traditions of the distant past that serves up one tasty delight after another. Utilizing the pilon technique of placing tobacco leaves in round stacks for fermentation, the folks at CAO have created a simply fantastic smoke.
The CAO Pilon Churchill is a beautiful 7” x 49 stick cloaked in an Ecuadorian Habano Viso wrapper leaf which hides a plethora of voluptuous Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. Topping off the exquisite smoke is a unique cigar band featuring not only the cigars stats, but a nostalgic image of a traditional pilon and the signature of Rich Rodriquez, CAO’s master blender.
The CAO Pilon Churchill eases into action with sumptuous earth, wood and pepper notes that flow endlessly throughout. The adventure moves seamlessly from its medium-bodied beginnings to a medium-to-full bodied backend that will kick the taste-buds into overdrive. The hour and a half experience concludes with a bold and subtly sweet finale.
Available in boxes of 20 glorious sticks, the CAO Pilon Churchill is another winner from CAO that melds 19th Century traditions with tobaccos blended for 21st Century tastes. The CAO Pilon Churchill is a must for CAO fans and will no doubt move towards the top of the list for connoisseurs across the board.
