Way back in the heady days of 2007, when Corona was a beer and we’d never even heard the words “social distancing”, CAO released a limited edition cigar that took the tobacco world by storm. The CAO Vision featured a decadent Dominican blend, along with its trademark luminescent band and illuminated achromatic box that functions as a working humidor, that gave the whole cigar a futuristic vibe.
Now the CAO Vision returns to a different world that’s hungry for more. This new CAO consists of a Cameroon wrapper, Ecuadoran Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan filler from Estelí and Jalapa. The new blend was created brand ambassador Rick Rodriguez, who said of the cigar, “I’ve never developed my own blend with a Cameroon wrapper, and I thought it was time to do it,” Rodriguez learned how to handle a Cameroon wrapper from tobacco master Benjamin Mendez, who oversaw the making of Dominican Partagas for years. Rodriguez said “Mendez spent a lot of time teaching me which tobaccos are the best for bringing out the Cameroon’s natural sweetness.”
That sweetness is on full display with The Vision, along with a medium spice profile that will have your palate singing with joy. CAO is only releasing 2500 boxes of Visions, so act fast. Want to experience the Vision? Try our website!
