There’s a new CAO line and unlike most CAO cigars, it’s made in the Dominican Republic, rather than Central America. Dubbed CAO Session, the new line is a collaboration between brand ambassador and blender Rick Rodriguez and Yuri Guillen, factory manager of General Cigar Dominicana.
Just in time for Father’s Day a special release from Arturo Fuente Cigar Company
Casa Cuba Divine Inspiration
In 2016, Casa Cuba saw its first addition with Casa Cuba Divine Inspiration. While the Fuentes are typically closed-lipped about the many exclusive variations of their large portfolio, Divine Inspiration arrived with a compelling narrative. Allegedly, Carlos Sr. awoke one night in his home in Tampa, Florida, where he had dreamt of a new variation to his Casa Cuba blend. Being in poor health, he was unable to make the trip to his factory in the DR and resorted to phoning-in the recipe instead. The resulting cigar was fittingly dubbed Divine Inspiration, marking the last cigar by Carlos Fuente Sr.—one of the most notable figures in the history of cigars.
