CAO Amazon Basin Extra Anejo

CAO Amazon Basin Extra Anejo

In the modern era of CAO, perhaps no other release has captivated cigar enthusiasts like the original CAO Amazon Basin cigar. First released in 2014, the Amazon-themed cigar made use of a unique tobacco grown in the Amazon rainforest known as Bragança. Combined with an eye-catching smokable band made from twisted tobacco leaves, the limited cigar became a fan-favorite release that has since inspired multiple spinoffs.

Bringing the story back to the beginning, CAO has now returned to the original blend, now undergoing an additional aging process and dubbing the cigars CAO Amazon Basin Extra Añejo. With the Extra Añejo, the cigars feature the same Bragança tobacco from the Amazon. This tobacco is planted/harvested only once every three years, where native farmers transplant the seeds a full yard apart, providing added sunlight and soil for each plant. After harvesting, the leaves are carefully rolled into rope-like <em>carottes</em>, where they naturally ferment for six months. Finally, the fermented leaves are placed in canoes in order to be transported out of the rainforest, eventually making their way to CAO's factory in Nicaragua.

With the Amazon Basin Extra Añejo cigar, the blend begins with a high-priming Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, which is secured over a Nicaraguan binder and fillers of the DR, Colombia, and the cigar's signature Bragança. But the blend has been taken a step further this go-'round, as the rolled cigars were placed in special rooms lined with aromatic Spanish cedar for two years, allowing the tobaccos to meld to perfection and taking on deeper levels of complexity that mellow certain flavor characteristics while bringing others to the forefront. This makes for an overall medium intensity, offering long-lasting flavors of mineral-rich soil, rain-soaked oak, cardamom, molasses bread, and touches of salted caramel.
