To coincide with the company’s recently announced virtual tour, General Cigar Co.’s CAO brand has revealed a new limited edition release: Zócalo. Named for the vibrant and celebratory city square in Mexico, Zócalo will be the first cigar in CAO’s portfolio made with Mexican tobacco.
“Zócalo speaks to CAO’s spirit of going off the beaten path,” explains CAO’s master blender Rick Rodriguez. “We’ve never used Mexican tobacco in any of our blends, so we went bold by using a Mexican wrapper leaf. It’s a special Morron wrapper grown in the San Andrés Valley and it delivers a great, earthy flavor I know the CAO fans will love.”
CAO Zócalo details:
Wrapper: San Andrés
Vitola: San Andrés (6 x 60)
MSRP: $8.49 per cigar / $169.80 per 20-count box
Only 3,5000 boxes of CAO Zócalo have been produced. The official release date is set for Cinco de Mayo (May 5), 2018.
