The CAO Pilon has an interesting back story: Master Blender Rick Rodriguez uses an old and expensive process to ferment the tobaccos used in this cigar. In the 1800s, men called Piloneros would create round pilons, or stacks of fermenting tobacco leaves. Pilons are made in an 18-month fermentation process, sometimes longer, involving hemming tobacco leaves together and stacking them layer by layer. This process, though time-consuming, is known to maximize the flavors and color of the leaves. It comes across in the new CAO Pilon, now available in three sizes; Churchill 7×48, Robusto 5×52 and Corona 5.5×44.
This has been a project that we have been working with the Garcia family of My Father Cigars for nearly a year. The all-new MB Extreme is compiled of all Grade-A Nicaraguan tobaccos grown on the Garcia’s farms in Nicaragua and rolled at their facility in Esteli. We were in search of a blend that expressed classic Nicaraguan tobacco characteristics similar to the Don Pepin Blue all while keeping the price point below $6.00. This cigar displays everything we were looking for, a rich and balanced smoke that engulfs the palate with chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts, and a light spice. At an everyday low price of $5.95 it’s a deal. At this special introductory offer it’s a steal!
