HBTC News: New CAO Bones Collection

CAO just announced Bones, a new cigar packaged a game box. Bones was named after dominoes and dice, and this new blend will be the latest addition to the diverse group of CAO products.

CAO’s blender/brand ambassador Rick Rodriguez said, “Bones is about kicking back with your friends with a cold beer in your hand, playing a game, smoking, grilling, talking a little trash, and having the time of your life. And that’s what CAO is about, too. It’s about being yourself,
enjoying the people you’re with and not having a care in the world while you’re having your cigar. Most of us need a break right now and Bones is just the cigar for that.”

Rick and the team set out to make a medium/full bodied smoke to be the topic of conversation or take the backseat during a game night. The blend was also developed to complement a wide range of libations. Bones features a four year old Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over a Connecticut Shade binder. The blend is comprised of two varieties of Honduran tobacco from Jamastran and La Entrada, along
with Nicaraguan Estelí and Dominican Piloto Cubano. Bones was blended to be a meaty smoke with notes of wood, nuts and vanilla.

Bones is a full-time addition to the CAO lineup and is made by hand at STG Estelí. Bones will ship on August 4th to retailers across the country and will be available in four sizes, each named after classic games of dominoes. Presented in 20-count boxes, each comes with standard 16mm dice and is outfitted with a felted inside lid suitable for gaming.
