Flathead V660 CARB Rated #3 in Top 25 Cigars of 2015 by Cigar Aficionado magazine!
Received an outstanding 95-rating from Cigar Aficionado magazine!
Cigar Aficionado said, "The cigar is a gutsy blend that starts with a dark Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, a Cuban-seed binder also grown in Connecticut and a combination of Nicaraguan ligero and Dominican Piloto Cubano tobacco. If Rodriguez and McKenna intended the blend to reflect hot rods and muscle cars along with the packaging, we’d say they delivered.
The name Carb 660 is named after the carburetor of a combustion engine and 660 indicates the length and ring gauge. From the first light, this seriously squared-off cigar takes off with notes of ripe fruit, leather and molasses that only gain intensity as it smokes."
Bring out the keys to your classic hot rod, because this is the cigar you’ve been waiting for. The CAO Flathead Collection is inspired by the classic hot rods of the 50’s and 60’s and the timeless pieces of pin-up girls from the hay days of American muscle cars.....
Now you can truly go back in time with this cigar collection from CAO, but a word of caution, if you don’t pack enough plutonium in your Delorean you might get stuck and never want to come back. Great Scott!! We wouldn’t want to have to get Doc Brown and Marty out of retirement to save the day. That would be heavy!
The CAO Flathead series cigars are box pressed across all four sizes. They feature a brawny Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and a blend that’s heavy on Nicaraguan long leaf fillers. CAO’s senior brand manager Ed McKenna had mentioned in several interviews:
“Rick Rodriguez and I were always talking about the great people we’ve met at CAO events across the country, and about the conversations we’ve had with them. It didn’t take us long to realize that the conversations were always about the same things: Cigars, Cars and girls. Not necessarily in that order. So that’s what led us to come up with Flathead”
To keep in line with CAO’s unconventional packaging methods which make them standout from the pack, Flathead gives the ultimate nod to the muscle car engines of the past. The lid is easily removable and can be used as wall art. There is also a collectible, pin-up girl flysheet that comes enclosed with every box. The boxes themselves resemble an old school engine block from the 50’s and 60’s. Best part is you won’t have to deal with pesky oil leaks and having to grease up. All you need to do is put on your leather jacket, grab a box of Flatheads and head out on the town in your ’51 Chevy Belair.
