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.

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
