The CAO OSA Sol cigar, released at the 2011 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas, is the first release produced since the purchase of CAO by General Cigar Co. The cigar bears the name of the region in which the wrapper is from, the Olancho San Agustin river valley, which is known for its rich soil.
In 2008 this area had an especially outstanding growing year. The harvest produced an amazing yield of wrapper tobacco loaded with oils & packed with flavor. CAO's master blenders rounded out the cigar with aged filler tobaccos from both Nicaragua and Honduras, which balance out the blend while providing additional flavor. But the CAO OSA Sol doesn’t end here, these fillers are then held together by a rich hearty Connecticut Broadleaf binder, which adds some extra spicy and sweet goodness to the cigar.
If you are a fan of CAO cigars, then this cigar may be your next best friend. The collaboration between the merged companies shines through in the CAO OSA Sol.
