CAO has announced a new, stronger follow-up to the Flathead V-19 blend, Flathead V21. This brand new blend, created by Rick Rodriguez and the CAO blending team, uses a Mexican San Andres wrapper, Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and Nicaraguan and Dominican ligero tobaccos.
Each of the filler leaves goes through a shorter fermentation and longer aging process to make them bolder and lock in the characteristics.
For Flathead V21, we wanted to give our fans a cigar that’s bold and complex, and still perfect for any smoking occasion. We see this as the ultimate cigar for the CAO smoker who wants to experience the complexity of each tobacco with every draw. I’ve personally enjoyed V21 on its own and with a drink and have experienced different notes every time I smoke it. To me, that means we’ve done our job.
Flathead V21 is rolled at STG Estelí in Nicaragua and comes in two sizes: Carb V21 (6 x 60) – MSRP per cigar $13.99, and Big Block V21 (7 x 70) – MSRP per cigar $14.99. Only 2,000 of each size were made and ships August 3.
CAO Flathead V21 will be released in two sizes, and production is limited to just 2,000 boxes per size. The blend will only be available for a limited time and begins shipping to retailers on August 3. The boxes for the CAO Flathead V21 are racecar red with a bold black sash that has in the brand’s logo on the front of the box. Each box contains 27 cigars.
