CAO Flathead

CAO Flathead

Ah the American 1950s… a time when one could build their own hot rod, when music finally began to rock, when you felt safe enough to leave the doors unlocked at night, and even pinup girls retained an aura of class and dignity - there’s a reason we refer to it as “The Golden Age”!

CAO looks to capture the spirit of these “happy days” with the CAO Flathead, combining near-any cigar enthusiast’s three favorite talking points (cars, cigars, and girls) into one glorious display of flavorful nostalgia.

Let’s start with the packaging, where CAO has enlisted the help of auto parts manufacturers; using authentic machinery to fabricate the box lids, including actual engine paint—as an added benefit, box lids can be removed to showcase as a display piece. The cigars are CAO’s first fully box-pressed offering, including a unique, squared-off cap (hence the name, Flathead). Each size features bright, hot-rod-inspired color themes, and are named after classic engine parts (Piston, Camshaft, etc.), showcasing primarily stalky sizes.

But it’s the smoking experience that earned Flathead multiple awards, including Cigar Aficionado’s #3 Cigar of the Year for 2015! A thick and oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper conceals a Habano-seed Connecticut binder and Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers, chock-full with high-priming ligero leaves… In other words, this is a full smoking experience! Flavors abound, with rich notes of dark chocolate, espresso powder, stone fruit, and leather.

Oh and did we mention? Each box arrives with a retro pinup girl flysheet artwork—perfect for the aspiring man cave!

  • Michael Lanier - CAO Flathead V450 Sparkplug
    My favorite in the flathead line up. Perfect size for this blend IMO. Rich in flavor and delivers a great retro hale.
  • Mateo Rodriguez - CAO Flathead V554 Camshaft
    Great size and great cigar. One of my first cigars ever and I never looked back after. I got the notes of chocolate and leather. The wrapper is oily as well which gave it a little bit if a dark cream note to it. Delicious and great for a 60-70 minute smoke. Goes great with coffee, whiskey, or a stout beer.
  • Mary Belcher - CAO Flathead V554 Camshaft
    I love these cigars so much I bought 3 -5 packs because they were on sale from 3 different places!! Yes they are THAT good!
  • Sean Correia - CAO Flathead V660 Carb
    I really like this cigar. It had a nice dark and gritty wrapper, it was med-full bodied with some leather, spice, and sweetness.
  • John Kenny - CAO Flathead V660 Carb
    The Flathead 660 Carb is a helluva stick. This one commands your attention from first light. The flat, square head accepts a large punch beautifully. Medium strength and full bodied. The flavors are very easy to pick out; chocolate, coffee, leather... all my favorites. Grab your biggest cigar punch and set aside a couple of hours for this bad boy. Worth every minute.
  • Michael Lanier - CAO Flathead V660 Carb
    This cigar packs a punch. You definitely don't want to fire this one up on an empty stomach. Definitely a full flavor stick that has the nicotine.
  • Ryan Nehus - CAO Flathead V660 Carb
    This is my favorite 6x60. It has great flavor and a manageable amount of strength. One of the best if not the best cigar CAO has to offer.
  • Lialew Lee - CAO Flathead V660 Carb
    This big ole stick is a good night cap cigar to end a night. Full on body. You get coco, coffee and easy draw. I can hot box a stick and it doesn’t get bitter.
  • Chad Manson - CAO Flathead V660 Carb
    If your a Connecticut Broadleaf fan you need to try this. Normally I’m not a 660 fan but it’s very doable in a box press. The wrapper almost has that sandpaper feel, super smooth smoke with a little spice that faded into leathery earthy notes.
  • David Braunfotel - CAO Flathead V660 Carb (Verified buyer)
    I know I am writing this review for the Carb but all lines rock. Buy them ALL!!
  • Bret Stutz - CAO Flathead V660 Carb
    Great cigar the box press makes this 6 x 60 enjoyable for a long favorable smoke. This cigar leans to the strong side. Enjoy
  • Jeremy Caudill - CAO Flathead V660 Carb
    This cigar has a lot of great flavors and provides hours of enjoyment. However, this cigar is full-bodied and bold so I would suggest not smoking on an empty stomach.
  • Jon Skerbitz - CAO Flathead V660 Carb
    Most agree on the big chocolate bar...solid smoke with smooth flavors.
  • Michael Cruz - CAO Flathead V660 Carb - 5 Pack
    This is what I call an oldie but goodie. Although it's been out for under ten years, I feel people have forgotten what a great, consistent cigar this is.
  • Larz Schwartz - CAO Flathead V660 Carb - 5 Pack
    A great cigar, with hints of cocoa...A big cigar, so make sure you have some time, it is a big cigar...
    I love to use a punch for this one, with the box press it works well for me.
  • David Moorhead - CAO Flathead V770 Big Block - 5 Pack
    This cigar is a bold reliable go-to for me when I'm out camping or outdoors. This cigar has a long solid burn that is fitting when I am out at hunt camp or riding around with the toys. The construction holds up to rigorous activity and doesn't need constant attention, touch-ups, or re-lighting. The flavors are full bodied with great pepper and light powdered coco. This cigar seems to pair well with your favorite roadie and campfire smoke! Thie price point and the overall experience is a reason I always have stock in my humidor!!
