CAO: Flathead Piston
Product Number: 007-012-0212
"Cigars, cars and girls"; that would be the theme which inspired CAO's latest entry. The series' name presents an obvious allusion, the squared-off, box-pressed vitolas (not to mention their individual nomenclature) is intuitive, and for those who order by the box, there's a box-lid designed as automotive-style wall art and a vintage-style "cheesecake" illustration - mind you I'm talking about the pin-up variety here, not pastry. (Though they are pretty sweet, and staring at them for too long may well cause one to salivate.)
So, they've got a theme down solid. But what about the blend? Well, for that they've got flavorful Nicaraguan and Piloto Cubana Ligeros taking center-stage as the filler, and Habano Connecticut and dark Connecticut Broadleaf taking their own places as binder and wrapper, respectively. In short, this is a stick that's got the go to back up the show.
