CAO Amazon Basin Toro - 5 Pack

The now virtually impossible to find CAO Amazon Basin cigar is obviously priced according to it's scarcity and massive demand.  A terrific blend created using the extremely rare Brazilian Braganca tobacco, grown only in the Amazon.  The initial release of CAO Amazon Basin cigars, in 2014, sold out immediately, and we've spend just about every day since taking requests to availability on more.  The follow-up release is again in a single vitola, a 6 x 52 Toro.  We have just about sold all of what we have at this point.
 
Rated 90 by Cigar Journal who commented, The CAO Amazon Basin cigar is "lightly spicy, with a delicate, chocolaty sweetness that's balanced by gently bitter notes of cacoa, coffee and hazelnut.  This cigar is harmoniously blended, smaooth and multifaceted.  Medium to fuill bodied."
 
As always, the CAO Amazon Basin Toro cigar is guaranteed for delivery worldwide.

From CAO:
"At CAO we love creating cigars with unique tobacco. And so a few years ago, when we heard a story about a photographer taking photos of tobacco farmers around the world, it naturally piqued our interest.
 
She had been in Brazil, the story went, taking shots of the tobacco for CAO Brazilia, when one of the farmers told her that to find some really unique leaves, she should journey into the Amazon. 
 
So she did. And there, in the heart of the rainforest, she found a rare, small batch of tobacco called ‘Braganca’.
 
When we got a sample of it, we knew we had to build a cigar around it -- a cigar that would become Amazon Basin.
 
Shaped by the Rainforest
The conditions of the rainforest make the taste of the Braganca leaf unique, and they make its cultivation unique as well. 
 
It’s grown organically to conserve the pristine environment of the rainforest, and it’s harvested infrequently. That’s one reason why we’ve only been able to make such a limited quantity of the cigar.
 
It’s also planted unconventionally. In traditional tobacco cultivation, the plants are arranged in neat rows. Not so with the Braganca plants -- the forest dictates that they be planted wherever sunlight is available.
 
Waiting Until They're Ready
Once harvested, the leaves embark on a unique fermentation process.
 
First, they’re hand rolled into tubes called carottes, as shown in the video above.
 
Then, they’re wrapped in a thick rope and placed in sheds where they undergo six months of natural fermentation.
 
From Forest to Cigar
After fermentation, it takes four to six weeks to transport the leaves to the factory.
 
They’re carried by hand to the river, put into canoes, rowed to the mainland, then driven to the port and shipped to Nicaragua. 
 
There, the leaves are combined with tobacco from five different countries. The band, made of natural leaf itself, takes far longer to make and apply than traditional bands, but for a cigar as unique as Amazon Basin, it’s worth all the effort."
