The CAO Pilon is unique in more ways than just its blend. It is unique in its production. Traditionally, tobacco is fermented in giant square piles. CAO utilizes an old fashion technique in which you pile the tobaccos in a circular stack, called pilon, which causes them to ferment slower. This increases the flavor and smoothness. It uses vintage Nicaraguan for its filler and binder along with an oily Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. This unique and delicious cigar has notes of pepper, sweet spice and cedar. This will really be a head turner in any cigar shop, so make sure you stock up on the CAO Pilon from Santa Clara Cigars.
