Arturo Fuente vs. CAO Title Bout Cigar Sampler

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen to Mike’s Cigars Battle of the Brands!


Introducing, in the Dominican corner, the world famous Arturo Fuente cigars produced by the reigning “First Family of Cigars,” Carlos and Carlito Fuente. In the Central American corner, with cigars hailing from Honduras and Nicaragua, we present the tremendously popular CAO cigars.


And now, let’s get ready to rumble!


Entering the ring, tonight’s first contender, CAO Brazilia Gol (5 x 56) CAO’s master blenders combined this outstanding leaf with a Nicaraguan binder and an extra hearty Nicaraguan long-filler blend to produce the CAO Brazilia series.  Introduced in 2001, this cigar has produced phenomenal sales ever since. Developed for the cigar fan that yearns for a full-bodied yet smooth and balanced smoke, the CAO Brazilia cigar offers multiple sizes in mostly large ring gauges.  Flavors and strengths differ among these sizes from medium-full to full bodied with deep aromas of nuts, cocoa, and earth present. A cigar for the accomplished smoker, the CAO Brazilia cigar line with numerous 90+ ratings represent an outstanding value.


Next in line for the title, we are proud to introduce, hailing from the famed Tabacalera A. Fuente, the Arturo Fuente Rothschild (4 1/2 x 50) When it comes to big flavors in a short cigar, you can't beat the Arturo Fuente Rothschild cigar. With abundant smoke and rich flavors and aromas, the Fuente Rothschild with its rich Cameroon wrapper and Dominican fillers is a great 40 minute smoke. he Arturo Fuente cigars come in a wide variety of wrappers.  Whether you prefer the spicy richness of the Cameroon leaf or the smooth fullness of the U.S. Connecticut Broadleaf the Arturo Fuente Gran Reserva line has a cigar for you. The higher grade of  Arturo Fuente Chateau cigars feature an Ecuadorian sun-grown Connecticut seed wrapper or a U.S. Connecticut Broadleaf maduro.


CAO Italia Ciao (5 x 56) This full body, powerful and very dark cigar boasting Italian grown tobacco from the Benevenuto valley in the south of Italy. The unique idea to combine Nicaraguan with continental filler is another CAO renovation. The final product, with Honduran binder/wrapper is an excellent and one of the most intriguing cigars online.


Fourth on tonight’s bill, the Arturo Fuente Seleccion Privada No. 1 (6 3/4 x 44) is a classic lonsdale sized cigar. Utilizing the highest grade, genuine African Cameroon wrapper which provides sweet spices and an incredible aroma, melded with the world famous Arturo Fuente Gran Reserva longfiller blend, this cigar promises to remain a classic for years to come. A solid medium bodied smoke, the Seleccion Privada No. 1 is constructed to the highest standards in the cigar industry, standards only the Fuente family can deliver.


The CAO Criollo (Pato) Robusto (4 7/8 x 50) The CAO Criollo cigar comes wrapped in a dark, rich chocolate brown Criollo 98 wrapper.  This wrapper is the product of years of hybridization and selection and delivers a smooth, creamy and slightly spicy aroma  and smooth finish to these beautifully constructed cigars. The Criollo cigar strain of tobacco is believed by many experts to be one of, if not the original tobaccos found in Cuba when Columbus arrived.  The word criollo means "native seed" in Spanish and it is this native, Cuban seed that eventually lead to the Criollo 98 wrapper leaf. Combining this outstanding wrapper from Nicaragua and an all Nicaraguan long-filler blend, the CAO Criollo cigars provide the well-heeled cigar smoker a truly unique medium bodied smoking experience.
