In late January we broke news of a new cigar coming from CAO, the Brazilia Carnivale, and while details were limited at that point, specifics about the cigar have recently been confirmed.
The CAO Brazilia Carnivale is a single vitola, 6 1/2 x 60 box pressed vitola that will be available exclusively to brick and mortar retailers. The Carnivale uses ligero tobaccos from three different countries to give the cigar a more powerful flavor profile than previous versions of the Brazilia line, which uses a Brazilian wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler.
2,500 boxes of 12 cigars are being produced in a one-time run, meaning that only 30,000 cigars are being made. MSRP is $8.30 per cigar or $99.60 per box. The box will also have a distinctive look, as shown in this mockup:
The CAO Brazilia Carnivale was recently made available to retailers for purchase and is slated to begin shipping as soon as orders are placed.
