You've no doubt heard of the CAO MX2 (and possibly the CX2 and LX2); now, the adventurous CAO brand introduces you to the latest in the series: the CAO BX3 cigar.
With CAO's X series, the name conventionally ties into the cigar's recipe, signifying the multiplier of a specific tobacco or region. This holds true with the CAO BX3 cigar, as the blend boasts Brazilian (there's your "B") tobacco throughout the wrapper, binder, and filler (hence the X3 multiplier). This includes a Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper, a Brazilian Arapiraca binder, and a diverse blend of robust filler tobaccos from Brazil, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Honduras!
What does the CAO BX3 cigar taste like?
The CAO BX3 cigar tastes like the friggin' Amazon rainforest, that's what! CAO really shows off their blending expertise on this one. Sure, they could've simply gone with a Brazilian puro, but no... they wanted more complexity, and the three-country filler addition really ties the experience together. Expect a medium body (no need to overwhelm the palate) and earthy, juicy flavors of rainforest soil, mineral, rich vegetation, punchy cocoa, and dark raisin through the finish.
