Mission Pipe Shop will be introducing the new CAO Colombia on Wednesday October 8th with a large cigar tasting event. Details will be available soon.
This is the first cigar to feature predominantly Colombian tobacco. This mild-to-medium cigars is a savory smoke with notes of toasted nuts sprinkled with unexpected nuances.
The new CAO Colombia uses a varietal of Cuban seed tobacco grown in Colombia called Ice Mazinga. This tobacco is grown in an isolated mountainous region of Colombia near the Carribbean coast and for the past 15 years a family of farmers has attended to it.
Rodriguez said in a press release, “We created the blend for CAO Colombia by experimenting with tobaccos used in the successful ‘Escaparate’ blend. We especially liked the way the Colombian tobacco was complemented by a touch of Brazilian Mata Fina. With a Nicaraguan Jamastran wrapper and Cameroon binder, CAO Colombia delivers a unique flavor experience unlike anything else we’ve ever released. We think it’s the perfect cigar to introduce the world to Colombian tobacco.
