CAO Brazilia Carnivale Cigars Hit Retail

Reading Time: < 1 minute

RICHMOND, VA — CAO Brazilia Carnivale cigars are hitting cigar shops as we speak. The 6″ x 60 box-pressed beauty is a limited edition release that puts an innovative spin on the popular Brazilia blend.

“Carnivale” is made with ligero 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, “We haven’t changed any CAO blends since we took over the brand. But that doesn’t mean we couldn’t put our spin on one of them. That’s exactly what we did with Carnivale “it’s my and my team’s take on Brazilia. We added a new wrapper, made the original wrapper the binder, and cranked the whole thing up with more ligero.”

You won’t miss CAO Brazilia Carnivale at your favorite cigar shop. It’s in an eye-catching, bright yellow, 12-count box, and is a must-have for the CAO collector. 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 CAO’s top blends. “My 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.”

Please note that the CAO Brazilia Carnivale cannot be purchased online. It is available ONLY at local retail cigar stores.
