Since debuting in 1996, CAO Gold has become a staple in humidors across the U.S. The cigar bears the classic CAO monogram with a regal, gold-heavy layout. This ties into the cigar's name, as well as the CAO Gold's signature ingredient: a flawless, gold-hued Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper.
CAO Gold is mild to medium-light in body, known for offering a silky smooth smoking texture with an edge. This is derived from an all-Nicaraguan binder/filler, allowing for a slightly fuller body than conventional Connecticut cigars. Available in a wide range of sizes, there is a CAO Gold for most every occasion. Expect loads of classic barnyard hay and cedar, backed by a creamy, palate-coating texture and nuances of salted nuts, white pepper, and sweet honey.
