CAO announced today that Zócalo is coming back, now as a regular production cigar. The name comes from a celebratory city square in Mexico. Zócalo was first released in 2018 as a limited edition blend and in just one vitola. The new regular production version of Zócalo comes in three sizes. It was the first CAO cigar to use a Mexican wrapper. We reviewed the original back in 2018 and gave it an 89.
“Two years ago, we tested a blend with a wrapper from Mexico, launching Zócalo in a 6 x 60. The response was very positive. The only negative feedback we received was that the blend came in just one size. Our fans told us that they would definitely support Zócalo if we had more sizes to offer. Fast forward to 2021 and here we are launching Zócalo as a permanent, three-cigar line.”
CAO Zócalo uses a rare Morron wrapper leaf grown in the Mexican San Andrés Valley, Cameroon binder, and Nicaraguan filler. Zócalo comes in boxes of 20 with the vibrant colors of the Mexican flag Sizes are: Robusto (5” x 52) MSRP $7.99, Toro (6” x 50) MSRP $8.49, and Gigante (6” x 60) MSRP $8.99. CAO Zócalo is rolled at STG Esteli. They ship March 5, 2021.
