The CAO Pilon Anejo series takes the fermentation method of stacking tobacco in layers highlighted by the original CAO Pilon to another level with two additional years of aging. The result is a silky smooth, richly textured smoke unlike any other. The CAO Pilon Anejo Robusto kicks the tastebuds into another gear by offering a perfect expression of the luxuriously complex twice-aged tobaccos.
The CAO Pilon Anejo Robusto is constructed around Seco and Ligero filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. A Honduran Habano binder shelters the blend while a dark Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper leaf covers it all. Once rolled, the Honduran-crafted 5 ½” x 54 stunner is set down for two additional years of aging to allow the tobacco blend to meld together and mature.
The medium-to-full-bodied experience features thick waves of earthiness bolstered by splashes of wood, caramel, and toast nuances. A lavish spiciness emerges on the backend, creating a richly satisfying and long-lasting finish.
A must-have for Maduro enthusiasts and CAO fans, the CAO Pilon Anejo Robusto offers a deliciously balanced smoke that finds favor across a wide spectrum of cigar lovers. The Pilon Anejo Robusto is a near-hour-long smoke that is a great pairing partner for Scotch Ale, providing a flavor explosion that is at once earthy, spicy, malty, and sweet.
