Flathead’s hitting on all cylinders

November 05, 2013 | Ed McKenna | 2 Comments


We’re pretty excited here at CAO. Flathead is hitting shelves, getting a great response and earning a lot of awesome reviews.

And I guess you could say we’re a bit like proud parents--we just have to share some of the nice things people are saying about the cigar. Here are some of our favorites: 


–“Flathead is a wonderful, balanced blend that has plenty of body… If you haven’t gotten around to trying Flathead yet, you’re missing out. Verdict = Buy.” – stogieguys.com

–“The guys over at CAO did a great job coming up with an original concept and identity for the Flathead… The CAO Flathead gets an easy A grade and my full recommendation. Do yourself a favor and take the Flathead out for a spin, these are the real deal.” – bestcigarprices.com

–“There are a times when a cigar blows you away and this was one of those times… With great strength and body levels from beginning to end this is a cigar that is great to end the evening with. I am giving this cigar a solid 91 right now.” – sethshumidor.com

–“My favorites of the extensive CAO portfolio were Brazilia and La Traviata; however, the Flathead has now clearly taken first position.  This is quite an enjoyable smoke.  4 stars” – smokeasy.net 

–“The packaging is great, the idea is great and the cigar is great. I’d say they have a hit on their hands.” – stogiesontherocks.com

–“My recommendation: keep this one well stocked in The Humidor.” – thehumidorblog.com

–“I spoke with another local retailer on the plane back [from IPCPR], and he couldn’t say enough good things about the CAO Flathead. He lit it up and loved it.. Who doesn’t love cars, cigars and retro pin-up girls?” – stogiereview.com

    Im a huge fan of the new CAO flathead 660 and 770 . It's great to see CAO back and on top were the should be. Just met ricky at the big smoke in Las Vegas and he is a true gentleman and stand up guy. Hope to see CAO at the big smoke in December. In nyc

    I smoked a 550 the other day and the flavor was phenominal, but mine didn't burn properly, not to worry though based on taste alone I will give it another go a 770 I think this time.
