A Mexican vacation!
After 25 years on the market, CAO is still finding ways to innovate. Sure, many brands claim to push the limits, but CAO walks the walk — just look at CAO Flathead, the highest rated 60-ring cigar ever, or the success of the Amazon based Anaconda and Fuma em Corda. Today, we welcome back what was once a previously single vitola release of CAO’s: Zocalo. Now offered in three sizes, this cigar still represents the first Mexican wrapped blend from this industry titan. Let me tell you, this fiesta is still one you’ll definitely want to attend.
Before we jump into the blend, let me make one thing clear — CAO Zocalo is an impressively tasty blend that easily stacks up with the best in the business. They owe it all to the Mexican wrapper. While some cigars use a lower quality Mexican leaf to create a grittier maduro, here Zocalo’s Mexican Morron cover leaf is silky smooth, oily, and rife with complexity. Underneath, you’ll find a Cameroon binder leaf and Nicaraguan long-filler. Each hit of this piñata of perfectly blended, aged tobaccos delivers notes of baked bread, black pepper, and tons of natural sweetness. Easily worth raising your cerveza for, CAO Zocalo is a must-have for any cigar lover.
