CAO Criollo Bomba Toro : Full
This cigar is an exercise in extreme patience. This extraordinary Nicaraguan wrapper has spent four long years in the curing, bringing out the robust flavors and intriguing subtleties reminiscent of the rich Cuban heritage from whence it derives its name. Originating in Cuba, the rich and sweet Criollo wrapper leaf formed the base for every spliced or hybrid strain of tobacco produced in the effort to improve the strain. Finally, a winning combination has been developed that is true to the flavor of the original Cuban seed. It is just this wrapper, the prized Criollo ’98, which CAO uses to produce this truly outstanding cigar. To compliment this fabulous wrapper is the finest Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long filler blend. Voted “Best Nicaraguan Cigar of 2005”.
