Welcome Back, Amazon Basin.

November 11, 2016 | | 87 Comments

After a long wait, the Amazon has given us its unique Braganca tobacco once again. For those who need a refresher on our one-of-a-kind Amazon Basin cigar, here it is.

Shaped By the Rainforest: The Braganca leaf is unique to its core. From its taste to the unconventional way it grows in the Amazon. Typically, our tobacco is planted in rows, but in this case, the forest dictates how it’s planted by wherever sunlight is available.  

A Cigar Worth Waiting For: Once the Braganca leaves are harvested, they are put through a unique fermentation process. Hand rolled into tubes, the leaves are wrapped in a thick rope where they then spend six months naturally fermenting.

A CAO Cigar is Born: Once finished aging, Amazon Basin is born. Creating a smoking experience like none other, this cigar is truly one worthy of any humidor.

Available in 6 x 52 - The perfect size to take you on a journey through the Amazon. 

We were lucky that the Amazon had more Braganca tobacco because a cigar this good is worth waiting on mother nature. Comment below with your favorite CAO Cigar by 11/17/16 at 5pm CST and be entered to win some signed swag from Ricky Rodriguez.


Happy Smoking,

CAO Cigars

    Had a few CAO cigars in the past, Gold has been my favorite (a full box sitting in my humidor).... until I tried Brazilia Amazon. Wow! Need more of these. This is going to be my Friday nights cigar, maybe even on Saturday nights, as well.

    Recently had an opportunity to try the CAO Consigliere. Now, I have been smoking cigars for well over 30 years and know what I like and do not like. I loved this cigar - everything about it - the size, blend, flavor, strength were all absolutely perfect for me. I know that they are difficult to find but I highly recommend that ya'll go out an try to fine these. They are well worth the effort.

    I also missed this one the first time around. I'm looking forward to trying it- this time I know a place that has it.

    Very excited to learn that the Amazon Basin will be returning! This cigar is consistantly mentioned when talking about great cigars that I wish I had more of!!

    The CAO Amazon Basin is easily the most unique cigar experience I have had the pleasure of encountering. It's earthy notes and complex arrangement make every draw a journey in taste. When it was first released I split a box with some friends to try it out and have regretted only that I could not buy more. Easily one of my favorite cigars. Looking forward to a new box.
