For the first time in quite some time, there will be a non-infused CAO being made in the Dominican Republic.
At this week’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, General Cigar Co. will show off the CAO Session, a three-size line made at General Cigar Dominicana. According to Cigar Aficionado, it will use a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper over a Dominican binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
- CAO Session Garage (5 1/4 x 54) — $8.59 (Box of 20, $171.80)
- CAO Session Bar (6 x 49) — $8.99 (Box of 20, $179.80)
- CAO Session Shop (6 x 60) — $9.59 (Box of 20, $191.80)
Almost all of CAO’s portfolio is made in Nicaragua at the STG Estelí factory.
The CAO Session will begin shipping to cigars immediately following the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins June 29 in Las Vegas.
General Cigar Co. declined to comment.
