Following the critical success of CAO's hot-rod-themed Flathead brand—including the high honors of Cigar Aficionado's No. 3 Cigar of the Year in 2015—CAO went back to the drawing board in an effort to offer cigar enthusiasts a more high-octane rendition of the fan-favorite cigar. This materialized in the form of CAO Flathead V19 cigar, a limited-edition Flathead cigar that hit store shelves in 2019.
Like the original Flathead, the CAO Flathead V19 boasts a gritty Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper, Connecticut Habano binder, and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The cigars are box-pressed and boast a striking flat-shaped head, drawing from the original brand but adding more muscle for fans of CAO's boldest smoking experiences. This concoction amounts to a near-full-bodied performance, revving up with dark and gritty flavor characteristics of baker's cocoa, gardening soil, white pepper, espresso, and sweet nougat through the finish.
