Discover the Elixir of Time-Honored Flavor
Attention, cigar enthusiasts! The wait is almost over as CAO Arcana Mortal Coil makes its grand return, back by popular demand! Get ready to indulge in the captivating allure of this limited-edition cigar, adorned with the Dominican Republic’s oldest tobacco fermentation method, “Andullo.” Mark your calendars, as it is set to ship to retailers on August 1, bringing forth a truly unparalleled smoking experience.
Ed Lahmann, the esteemed senior brand manager of CAO cigars, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “The fans of CAO spoke, and we listened. We previously brought back Mortal Coil, yet the fans kept wanting more. So with this year’s release of the blend, we’re showing the fans of CAO that we’re willing to go the extra mile for them.”
At the heart of CAO Mortal Coil lies the Andullo tobacco, an embodiment of time-honored cultivation and curing techniques for sungrown Habano-seed tobaccos. Distinct from traditional bulk fermentation, this extraordinary tobacco is lovingly wrapped tightly in handcrafted palm tree pods known as “yaguas,” which are then compressed with rope coiled around the pod. This laborious old-world process takes approximately two years, transforming the tobacco into rough, leathery-looking leaves with a characteristically thick texture and an enchanting earthy sweetness.
The composition of CAO Mortal Coil is a testament to the artistry of cigar-making, with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, a Connecticut Shade binder, and a carefully crafted filler featuring Dominican Andullo encircled by Honduran Jamastran, Nicaraguan Esteli, and Dominican Piloto Cubano tobaccos. The result is a medium-bodied cigar that exudes an alluring aroma, tantalizing your senses from the very first draw.
Prepare to embark on a journey of taste as Mortal Coil unfolds its rich profile. Notes of molasses, dark chocolate, and raisin dance upon your palate, accompanied by delightful hints of spice that add a layer of complexity to the smoking experience.
The CAO Mortal Coil Toro, a generously sized 6 1/8” x 50 cigar, will be available for a per-cigar SRP of $11.99, presented in elegantly designed 20 count boxes. Each cigar is a testament to the passion and expertise of the master blenders at STG Esteli, ensuring an exceptional smoke for aficionados and connoisseurs alike.
As the clock ticks, anticipation builds. CAO Mortal Coil will soon grace the shelves of esteemed retailers, captivating the hearts of cigar enthusiasts across the globe. Don’t miss your chance to savor this remarkable creation. Mark August 1, 2023, on your calendars, and prepare for an extraordinary experience that transcends time and elevates your smoking pleasure.
