Not only is CAO’s Zócalo returning, but it’s also set to become CAO’s next regular full-time addition to the CAO lineup.
Named for a celebratory city square in Mexico, CAO Zócalo was first released in 2018 as a limited edition blend and made available in just one size. CAO Zócalo was the first CAO cigar made with a Mexican wrapper and for its 2021 return, it’ll be coming out in 20-count boxes in three classic sizes: Robusto (5 x 52), Toro (6 x 50), and Gigante (6 x 60).
“Two years ago, we tested a blend with a wrapper from Mexico, launching Zócalo in a 6 x 60. The response was very positive,” says Rick Rodriguez, blender and brand ambassador for CAO. “The only negative feedback we received was that the blend came in just one size. Our fans told us that they would definitely support Zócalo if we had more sizes to offer. Fast forward to 2021 and here we are launching Zócalo as a permanent, three-cigar line.”
CAO Zócalo features a special Morron wrapper leaf grown in the San Andrés Valley. It features a Cameroon binder and its filler is comprised entirely of Nicaraguan tobacco. According to CAO, the blend is a mix of an earthy spice and subtle sweetness.
CAO Zócalo will be presented in boxes style with the vibrant colors of the Mexican flag. CAO Zócalo is made at STG Esteli and will begin shipping on March 5, 2021.
