CAO has announced the 2022 iteration of their limited edition Vision cigar. The blend uses 100% habano-seed tobacco grown in microclimates surrounding the STG Estelí factory where the cigars are rolled. CAO Vision uses a reddish-hued Honduran Jamastran Viso wrapper, Nicaraguan Jalapa binder, and blend of Nicaraguan fillers from Condega, Estelí and Jalapa.
CAO Vision 2022 comes almost two years to the day following the limited edition re-release of the original CAO Vision which debuted in 2020 and featured a Cameroon wrapper. We also reviewed that cigar here.
On the one hand, Vision expresses CAO’s commitment to the past through its dedication to old-world craftsmanship. And on the other hand, Vision takes a look into the future, with ultra-modern packaging that shatters the conventions of the handmade cigar category. Vision embodies CAO perfectly, as a brand that challenges the status quo while keeping a firm eye on tradition.Ed Lahmann, senior brand manager of CAO
CAO vision is presented in a futuristic-looking 30-count humidor complete with holographic foil treatments, working LED lights and two push-sensitive drawers that each hold 15 sticks.
CAO Vision 2022 comes in just one vitola, a 6” x 52 Toro which will sell for $18.99 per cigar. Only 1,700 humidors will sold in the U.S. beginning on November 1. In addition to the U.S. market, CAO will release 1,000 humidors of Vision to select retailers in Europe in the first quarter of 2023.
