CAO master blender Rich Rodriquez and his team have delivered another knockout that is so delicious and so amazingly satisfying that Rodriquez even put his signature on every cigar band! The CAO Pilon line is a new addition to CAO’s Classic Series and is an absolute must for aficionados near and far!
Utilizing Nicaragua binder and filler tobaccos that have been allowed to ferment using an old Cuban method known as pilon, which was the genesis for the CAO Pilon project, the CAO Pilon Robusto is draped with a velvety Ecuadorian Habano Viso wrapper leaf. The 5” x 52 stick that emerges unleashes a voluptuous 45 minute to an hour endeavor unlike any CAO to date.
Once the CAO Pilon Robusto is set afire, notes of wood and spice begin to ease onto the palate, clearing the way for a hearty dose of pepper and earth flavors. As the smoke moves from medium-bodied towards the fuller range, splashes of earth and spice join in the complex journey that finishes with a lively and subtly sweet flourish.
The CAO Pilon Robusto will enthrall cigar enthusiasts to no end with a deeply textured smoke that is as tasty and as savory as they come. These treasures are available in boxes of 20 sticks and will prove fantastic pairing partners with your favorite beverage or on their own.
