“Carnivale” is made with ligeros from the DR,Honduras and Nicaragua, and a binder from Brazil. The wrapper is a rare Habano Grueso leaf cultivated only in small quantities.
Rick Rodriguez who heads up blending for CAO said,“We haven’t changed any CAO
blends since we took over the brand. But that doesn’t mean we couldn’t put our
spin on one of them. That’s exactly what we did with Carnivale…it’s my and my
team’s take onBrazilia. We added a new wrapper, made the original wrapper the
binder, and cranked the whole thing upwith more ligero.”
You won’t miss CAO Brazilia Carnivale at your favorite cigar shop. It’s in an
eye-catching, bright yellow, 12-count box, and is a must-have for the
CAOcollector. Single CAO Brazilia Carnivale cigars are on sale for $8.30 until
the limited supply is gone.
Rick hinted that there could be another small batch twist on the horizon for
another one of CAO’s top blends. “My team and I have been experimenting with
some fantastic tobaccos, so CAO fans should be on the lookout to see what we
come up with next.”
