The CAO Amazon Basin, one of the most heralded cigars within the General Cigar Co. portfolio, will return to stores on Jan. 9. Like tequila, the “Extra Añejo” part of the name means these cigars were aged for longer, specifically, two years in a Spanish cedar-lined aging room in Nicaragua.
The unique boxes features lights. Notably, General Cigar Co. is using orange LEDs instead of the blue color that has been used for the first two releases.
Canada is getting its own CAO release, and it uses Canadian-grown tobacco in the filler.
