The newest limited edition from CAO is arriving at retailers.

It’s called CAO Arcana Mortal Coil, a 6 1/8 x 50 toro that is highlighted by Dominican andullo tobacco, a unique way of processing tobacco.

Most tobacco used for cigars is harvested and placed in pilones—basically extremely large piles of tobacco that are rotated in and out as the leaves dry—but andullo tobacco is picked and then wrapped into large pods known as yaguas after being harvested. These pods are then rooted into the ground while the tobacco cures.

For this release, General Cigar Co. is using four filler tobaccos: the aforementioned Dominican andullo tobacco, Dominican piloto cubano, Honduran tobacco from the Jamastran Valley and Nicaraguan tobacco from Estelí. It’s wrapped in a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper over a shade-grown Connecticut binder.

Pricing is set at $10.99 and it is limited to 5,000 boxes of 20 cigars.
