CAO America Monument 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.
CAO is my favorite brand, and I now have a favorite CAO. America is full-flavored but very mellow. What a cigar!
I found this one early in my cigar-smoking experience and it still stands out as one of the best smokes for the price.
I m a fan of all Connecticut wrappers. The CAO America does not disappoint. The draw was tight at first, but it loosened up. The taste was great. This cigar has become a regular in my humidor.
