The CAO Pilón Corona (5.5″ x 44)
Hi I’m Stephanie with CheapHumidors.com and today we’re back with another unboxing, our box of cigars today is the CAO Pilón cigars.
This cigar pays tribute to the old way of fermenting cigars with the pilón piles. You would basically take the tobacco leaves after they’re done drying, bundle them up in to what they’re called as “hands”, and then layer them on top of each of by alternating their stacking. So that’s the old way to ferment tobacco leaves. Now, CAO is paying tribute to that which probably means this is going to be a pretty tasty cigar with the fermentation process they’re using. So with that aside let’s get to the box and see what’s inside.
Alright so once you open it up you see the Pilón cigars and the CAO logo at the top, on the lid. Now it’s a bit weird how the box it laid out but don’t worry this side opens too. So you just want to slice the logo and that side opens up with ease. Now, as you can see they continue the logo down, telling you a bit about the pilón and what it’s all about. I like that this wrap around logo, that they have on top of this little flap continuing onto the other side, mimic’s the cigars band. It’s definitely a band you would want to keep as well, since it’s really well-done, stylish and just all around pretty. The wrapper has a nice oily sheen to it, it’s like a dark chocolate brown color. This is the Corona size it’s 5.5 inches long with a 44 ring gauge. This cigars origin is Nicaragua so the binder and filler are Nicaraguan and the wrapper is an Ecuador Habano, making this a lovely medium to full body smoke.
So that wraps it up for our unboxing of the CAO Pilón cigars. Let me know if you’ve tried the Pilón or if you’re interested in trying it. Check back next week because Kayla will being doing a review of the CAO Pilón cigar.[VIDEO] Unboxing The CAO Pilón Corona (5.5" x 44) by Stephanie Bolen
