Stogie News: New Cigars from CAO

9 Aug 2006

We’ve written about how CAO leads the cigar industry with its innovative marketing strategies, so it comes as no suprise that, once again, CAO is bringing something new and unique to market:

Lovers of unusually shaped and creatively crafted cigars should examine C.A.O.’s Brazilia vs. Italia: Artistry of Champions sampler set. The collection of five cigars breaks new ground in cigar making. Two of the shaped cigars are C.A.O. Italia blends, two are C.A.O. Brazilias and one is a combination of the two blends dubbed “Bratalia.” Two of the cigars feature oversized trumpets with feet nearly wide enough to serve as baseball bats.

By the way, those “trumpets” are the 96 ring gauge cigars that we wrote about a few weeks back (the ones that were scaled down from 137). At $100 dollars for the set, these five cigars certainly aren’t cheap, but there’s nothing else like them on the market.

So if you’re feeling adventurous and burdened by too much cash in your wallet, pick up the Artistry of Champions sampler set at your local cigar retailer…and feel free to send one over to the Stogie Guys!

But I was left with one important question: Can you really smoke those 96 ring gauge trumpets? I’d sure like to find out! […]
