A pilon is a stack of tobacco leaves meticulously configured in small configurations. Dating back to 19th century Cuba, this method of natural fermentation maximizes the flavor and color of the leaves to deliver a taste and appearance unattainable through other methods. The CAO blending team opted to apply this time-honored method exclusively to the silky Cuban seed Ecuadoran wrapper of CAO Pilon, the latest addition to its Classic line.
The result is a collection of cigars that bear a deep, rich color and an incredible depth of flavor with notes of wood, spice and a touch of sweetness.
