⊗ A real blockhead… ‘Murica, son! The home of hot rods, pin-up chicks, and now CAO’s newest offering: Flathead. Borrowing inspiration from muscle cars, CAO Flathead not only sports a highly unique shape, but backs it up with a high-octane blend. So what’s so unique about the shape? Instead of a traditional head (rounded or torpedo shaped), this sleek handmade is flat headed, meaning it’s completely squared off.
⊗ Heavy in the hand, this dark creation starts with a well-fermented Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Thick and chewy, this leaf conceals a bevy of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers embraced by a Connecticut Habano-seed binder. Then, each cigar is carefully box-pressed, truly bringing the unique head to light. Churning out a mix of spicy-sweet goodness, expect hints of earth, black pepper, and cocoa throughout a full-bodied experience.
⊗ And if you’re looking to spruce up your man cave, good news! Each box lid is removable, making for a nice wall-hanger or conversation piece.
⊗ CAO Flathead received Top 25 honors for 2015 (#3 overall) and an impressive 95-rating noting: “From the first light, this seriously squared-off cigar takes off with notes of ripe fruit, leather and molasses that only gain intensity as it smokes.”
It’s big. It’s blocky. And it has the flattest head we’ve ever seen on a premium cigar. It’s also loaded with surprisingly rich, complex tobacco.The CAO Flathead V660 Carb is one of the bulkiest cigars in the CAO Flathead line, which is made by General Cigar Co. in Nicaragua.
⊗ CAO cigars have established themselves as one of the world’s most innovative cigar brands by creatively using the finest premium tobaccos from all over the world to create a smoke that is truly unlike any other.
