CAO Amazon Basin: A Rare Gem from the Depths of the Rainforest
The CAO Amazon Basin is a cigar that transcends the ordinary, offering an experience as untamed and captivating as the Amazon itself. Returning to the market for the first time since January 2022, this limited release is a treasure for those who appreciate the rarity and complexity of their cigars. Each 6 x 52 toro is a testament to CAO’s innovative spirit and dedication to bringing the exotic tastes of the Amazon to cigar enthusiasts around the world.
Exquisite Blend with the Jewel of Bragança
The highlight of the CAO Amazon Basin blend is the inclusion of the rare Bragança tobacco, a variety that can only be harvested every three years. This tobacco is cultivated with meticulous care, grown with ample space to thrive, and then aged in carottes, enhancing its unique profile. The result is a cigar with unparalleled depth and a story as rich as its taste.
A Journey Through the Rainforest
Smoking the CAO Amazon Basin is like navigating the mysterious Amazon. It starts with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper that introduces a layer of earthy sophistication. The Nicaraguan binder adds a touch of spice and strength, while the fillers from Brazil, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic create a complex symphony of flavors. From the moment you light up, you embark on an adventure through notes of wood, spice, and a natural sweetness that captures the spirit of the rainforest.
Limited Availability, Infinite Satisfaction
Reflecting its premium and scarce nature, the CAO Amazon Basin is as much an investment as it is a luxury. With fewer boxes produced than in the previous year, this cigar’s scarcity makes it a prized addition for collectors and connoisseurs alike. Its packaging, featuring coiled tobacco bands and rustic boxes, is a tribute to the authenticity and craftsmanship of this exceptional blend.
Celebrating a Decade of Discovery
“A decade ago, we debuted Amazonian tobacco to the world,” says Ed Lahmann, senior brand manager for CAO. “We’re proud to release this special blend again. Due to the scarcity of tobacco and the care it requires, production
is understandably limited. Aficionados should seize the opportunity to acquire the Amazon Basin whenever they can, as its availability is as fleeting as the mysteries of the jungle it represents.”
Crafted with Mastery at STG Estelí
The CAO Amazon Basin is not only a marvel of blending but also a masterpiece of construction. Handmade at STG Estelí in Nicaragua, each cigar reflects the expertise and precision that are hallmarks of CAO’s manufacturing process.
