CAO announces that ZÃ³calo will return, this time as a full time addition to the CAO lineup.
CAO ZÃ³calo, named for a celebratory city square in Mexico, was a limited edition blend released in just one size in 2018 and at that time marked the first CAO cigar to be made with a Mexican wrapper. Today the blend returns with three classic frontmarks.
CAOâ€™s Blender/Ambassador Rick Rodriguez said, â€œTwo years ago, we tested a blend with a wrapper from Mexico, launching ZÃ³calo in a 6 x 60. The response was very positive. The only negative feedback we received was that the blend came in just one size. Our fans told us that they would definitely support ZÃ³calo if we had more sizes to offer. Fast forward to 2021 and here we are launching ZÃ³calo as a permanent, three-cigar line.â€
CAO ZÃ³calo features a special Morron wrapper leaf grown in the San AndrÃ©s Valley, with a Cameroon binder and a filler of entirely Nicaraguan tobacco. The blend delivers earthy spice and subtle sweetness.
ZÃ³calo will be presented in boxes styled with the vibrant colors of the Mexican flag, each containing 20 cigars.
Robusto (5â€ x 52); SRP per cigar $7.99
Toro (6â€ x 50); SRP per cigar $8.49
Gigante (6â€ x 60); SRP per cigar $8.99
CAO ZÃ³calo is made at STG Esteli and ships to retailers on March 5, 2021.
