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!
What a treat! Great looking barberpole. Caught the guys eyes right away! This is a very powerfully smooth cigar that intensified as we went along. Very earthy organic and leather with almond hints. Did I say how smooth this cigar is? I’d say it’s on the lower range of full, but such an enjoyable hint of spices...smoke em with confidence!
I found this one early in my cigar-smoking experience and it still stands out as one of the best smokes for the price.
