CAO Brazilia Carnivale is hitting cigar shops as we speak. The 6 Â½â€ x 60 box-pressed beauty is a limited edition release that puts an innovative spin on the popular Brazilia blend.
â€œCarnivaleâ€ is made with ligeros from the DR, Honduras and Nicaragua, and a binder from Brazil. The wrapper is a rare Habano Grueso leaf cultivated only in small quantities.
Rick Rodriguez who heads up blending for CAO said, â€œWe havenâ€™t changed any CAO blends since we took over the brand. But that doesnâ€™t mean we couldnâ€™t put our spin on one of them. Thatâ€™s exactly what we did withÂ Carnivaleâ€¦itâ€™s my and my teamâ€™s take on Brazilia. We added a new wrapper, made the original wrapper the binder, and cranked the whole thing up with more ligero.â€
You wonâ€™t miss CAO Brazilia Carnivale at your favorite cigar shop. Itâ€™s in an eye-catching, bright yellow, 12-count box, and is a must-have for the CAO collector.Â Single CAO Brazilia Carnivale cigars are on sale for $8.30 until the limited supply is gone.
Rick hinted that there could be another small batch twist on the horizon for another one of CAOâ€™s top blends. Â â€œMy team and I have been experimenting with some fantastic tobaccos, so CAO fans should be on the lookout to see what we come up with next.â€
