Reading Time: 2 minutes

New Honduran Jamastran Wrapper Lights-up Vision 2022 Cigars Blend

 CAO proudly presents Vision, a limited-edition release that speaks to the many facets of the highly innovative Nicaraguan brand. Moreover, CAO Vision 2022 comes almost two years to the day following the limited edition re-release of 2020 CAO Vision that featured an African Cameroon wrapper.

“On the one hand, Vision expresses CAO’s commitment to the past through its dedication to old-world craftsmanship,” said CAO senior brand manager Ed Lahmann. “On the other hand, Vision takes a look into the future, with ultra-modern packaging that shatters the conventions of the handmade cigar category.”

The experience begins as a creamy smoke with a subtle natural sweetness and transitions to notes of wood and chocolate peppered with a rich spice.


Then there’s the 30-count humidor which brings CAO Vision to the next level. Complete with holographic foil treatments, working LED lights, and two push-sensitive drawers that hold 15 vitolas each, the entire presentation is truly a work of art unto itself.

Only 1,700 CAO Vision 2022 humidors will be made available for the U.S. market at select retailers.

CAO Vision 2022 will be released in just one size, a 6” x 52 Toro which will retail at $18.99 per cigar SRP. Only 1,700 humidors will be made available for the U.S. market at select retailers beginning on November 1, 2022.

 “Vision embodies CAO perfectly, as a brand that challenges the status quo while keeping a firm eye on tradition,” added Mr. Lahmann. CA
