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.

"An extremely earthy and smoky cigar. If you are a fan a sticks with strong mineral and hickory style flavors this should be added to your list to try. While it's not exactly my preferred profile I definitely appreciated the layers of mineral, smoke, and hints of spice." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)

"Overall this was a good cigar. Very consistent, flavorful, not terribly complex, but still delicious. Nothing stood out like a beacon for me, it was just easy going and well constructed with enough flavor. An easy recommendation if an affordable stick." -John A. (Bostoneo)
"Overall I enjoyed this cigar. The transition from dry and earth to bakers spice and bread notes was a pleasant surprise. The lemon zest on the finish definitely added to the overall experience " -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
"This medium to full profiled cigar will give you plenty of strong flavors to keep the most hardened enthusiast interested. Big bodied notes of chocolate, leather, wood, and pepper kept always in play at some level, while It burned on. Burn and construction were top-notch as this cigar slowly burnt and lasted a whole eighty minutes for a Robusto. It was a bit strong for me, but I am sure there are plenty of people who may enjoy this." -John A. (Bostoneo)
"A very boxable cigar some hiccups but it is a handmade product and in my opinion worth a little coin to enjoy. I do wonder how they would age seems like a prime candidate for the experiment." -Ryan H. (Ryan H.)
Nashville, TN, has seen a dramatic increase in growth over the last few years. In 2018, Nashville was ranked as the 8th fastest growing large city in the United States. Many long-time Nashville residents miss the 'old Nashville' that was around before the gentrification and construction throughout the city. It was with this 'old Nashville' in mind that Crowned Heads has made the "Wabash Cannonball" exclusively for Casa de Montecristo, Nashville.
"This cigar was really really good. From the initial aromas and cold draw, to the nice burn and finished product, there was not much to not enjoy. The subtle notes of cherry jam that came in during the middle really gave this a complex profile. These are very good well-made cigars and I can only hope I have the opportunity to smoke another one." -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)
