CAO America Monument Barber Pole premium cigars are CAO's first 'pinstripe' style cigar. Deftly rolled with two American-grown wrapper leaves - a dark Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro and lighter Connecticut Shade capa - this full-bodied cigar is blended with premium longfiller Ligero tobaccos from Nicaragua, Italy, U.S.A., and the Dominican Republic bound in a zesty Brazilian leaf. The smoke is robust, creamy, complex and marvelously smooth with a clean finish. Presented without cello, in short, America is beautiful.

I had one of these with a Guinness stout after a nice meal and a quick nap. I have to admit, I was expecting this cigar to be more of a gimmick with it's double wrapper. I was wrong, wrong, wrong!! This cigar was absolutely wonderful. Lots of tobacco flavor with no harsh aftertaste. I will definitely recommend this and will eagerly procure a box for my humidor. CAO did a fabulous job on this one!!!less
