The CAO Flathead Piston is handcrafted with a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Connecticut Habano binder and Nicaraguan filler that is also mixed with a little bit of Dominican tobacco. The dark wrapper of the CAO Flathead Piston shows a little veins and wrinkles, yet the Flathead was carefully constructed leaving no soft spots, just a sturdy and bold cigar. At first smell, the wrapper of the Flathead gives off a rich and earthy smell and a pre light draw with note of tobacco, chocolate and sweetness. After lighting the CAO Flathead Piston flavor notes are sweet, with a little hint of spice at the exhale. As you continue to smoke the Flathead the spice notes pick up and become stronger making this stick a complex yet well balanced smoking experience. The CAO Flathead Piston is a bold and complex cigar not meant for the cigar rookie, unless they think they are ready for a stick that packs a big, bold and spicy punch. So take a step back in the past and give the old school CAO Flathead cigar line a try, you won’t be sorry!
