FrontRunners: Select Smoke

<< Back to Robb Report, The Ultimate Gift Guide


A beautiful presentation sometimes masks a lesser creation, but the cigars nestled in these gold anodized tubes outshine their packaging. CAO created the 65th Anniversary cigar to commemorate company founder Cano A. Ozgener’s 65th birthday and his recent victory over cancer. This all-Nicaraguan blend caters to the connoisseur with a character that is substantial and complex. Subtle yet unmistakable flavors of cinnamon and pepper float over a medium-to-heavy body, entertaining the smoker without overpowering his palate. We sampled the 6-inch, 52-ring-gauge Moda. CAO also offers the smaller TonTon and larger Esen. ($120 for a box of 10)
