CAO will release their new line Consigliere at the IPCPR trade show 2016. CAO Consigliere is a sequel of a previously released line that also came in a red laquer box. The company stated that the five-country blend of Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper, Honduran binder and fillers from Nicaragua, Colombia and the Dominican Republic is the same as the original release.
Handmade in Nicaragua, the line features three sizes: the 5 x 52 Associate, the 6 x 54 Soldier and a 7 x 56 Figurado called Boss. The cigars will sell from USD 6.99 to 8.99. CAO master blender Rick Rodriguez will be present at events across the U.S. during the year for the re-introduction of the blend to the market.
