One of the largest CAO cigars in the brand’s history is heading to stores.
The CAO 60 Torque is a massive 8 x 60 vitola that uses a Honduran habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan habano binder and fillers from Nicaragua. It comes packaged in a tin designed to look like an oil can that holds eight cigars. Each cigar has an MSRP of $12.50 per cigar, meaning the tin of eight is priced at $100.
“With 60, it was either go big or go home, and of course we went big with the blend,” said Rick Rodriguez, CAO’s master blender, in a press release. “This cigar is equivalent to revving the engine of a classic muscle car. It’s bold, it demands attention and when you light up a Torque, you’re in for a great ride. We hope that our fans enjoy Torque as much as we enjoyed creating the cigar for them.”
General Cigar Co. says the CAO 60 Torque is limited though the company is declining to disclose the number of cigars being released.
