CAO is the little, boutique, premium cigar brand that has defied all odds in the premium cigar industry. It started as a dream by the late Cano A. Ozgener, who incorporated his passion for fine cigars along with his passion for family to create the CAO brand. Together they grew CAO from a local favorite to one of the most widely recognized names in the cigar industry. When the family sold the brand to General Cigar in 2007, many had doubts that the brand could thrive under the corporate yoke. The brand was put in the capable hands of Rick Rodriguez, who had been the heir apparent to Partagas Master Blender Benji Menendez. Those first few years were rocky for CAO and Rodriguez, but he’s hit his stride and continues to churn out spectacular new blends for the brand.

CAO is no stranger to the world of tobacco experimentation and their latest release the CAO BX3 is a testament to their creativity. With BX3, they set out to take the best of Brazilian tobacco and bring it to the next level. This blend contains 3 different types of Brazilian tobaccos! BX3 features a blend of tobaccos from Brazil, Honduras, Mexico and Nicaragua for the filler, a Brazilian Arapiraca binder, and a Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper. It’s a great blend that features tasting notes of cedar, black pepper, dark chocolate, and earth along with hints of leather, tangy citrus, molasses, and nuts. This is truly intriguing smoke that will have you coming back for more as you explore it’s complex flavor profile.
