Introduced in 1996, the C.A.O. Gold Label has received some of the highest ratings in the industry, including two “90” ratings, an “89,” and several ratings of “88.” Recently the C.A.O. Gold Corona received a Cigar Aficionado “90” (“Excellent”), making it the second highest rated non-Cuban cigar in the world. To realize a ranking among the world’s best cigars was and is the dream of C.A.O. founder and president Cano A. Ozgener. With its beautiful Connecticut-Connecticut wrapper, the C.A.O. Gold Label has earned a much-deserved reputation for flawless construction, consistent quality, and a medium-bodied flavor that is the perfect “step up” for the smoker looking for something a bit more flavorful than the traditional mild cigars. Sure to become a mainstay of your humidor, the C.A.O. Gold Label is a smooth Nicaraguan cigar that offers flavors of mild spice with creamy vanilla and nutmeg accents.
