In cigar making the meticulous pilon method was away of fermenting tobacco by placing tobacco leaves in round stacks to let naturework its magic, guaranteeing richly developed color, flavor and texture. And that is just how the CAO Pilon Torpedo cigarsare created, which imparts a wondrously smooth, yet gratifyingly bold smoke.
Each CAO Pilon Torpedo is loaded with lush Nicaraguan tobaccos which make up the binder and filler, while the stunning wrapper leaf is a beautiful Ecuadorian Habano Viso leaf which completes what proves a masterfully crafted 7” x 54 stick that will deliver an impressive over an hour journey.
Once the CAO Pilon torpedo is underway, thick woodand pepper notes roll out of the wondrously constructed draw and out onto thepalate along with hints of cocoa and spice. The medium-to-full bodied endeavorcruises towards a luscious finale that is at once richly structured, subtlysweet and satisfying.
As part of CAO’s Classic Series, the CAO PilonTorpedo is a magnificent achievement that will delight cigar adventurers with adeeply complex experience unlike any in the CAO line-up. These unique gems areavailable in boxes of 20 cigars which sport cigar bands emblazoned with anostalgic representation of a traditional pilon and the signature of masterblender Rich Rodriquez.
