The CAO Nicaragua all begins with the carefully selected Nicaraguan Jalapa, Esteli, and Condega tobacco leaves. An astounding amount of longleaf tobacco from Condega, Jalapa, and Esteli has been stuffed beneath the oily, lightly veined wrapper to create a uniformly solid vitola that feels like velvet and smells of wood. Starting off with a leathery burst, the profile soon expands to include white pepper, cocoa, and cream. The boldness of these filler tobaccos shines through with rich Nicaraguan flavor & depth. The result is a full-bodied pepper bomb of a smoke that delivers hints of nuts & toasty flavors.
