The CAO America was introduced at the 2007 RTDA trade show in Huston, Texas. Its arrival was preceded by a lot of hype and buzz brought about by two unique features of the cigar. Number one, the wrapper caused a good deal of buzz. The CAO America sports two wrappers, both American grown. It has a Connecticut grown broadleaf maduro wrapper and a Connecticut shade grown wrapper. They are applied to the cigar in a manner that creates a unique pin striping effect. Another feature of the cigar that generated a good deal of chatter was the four country blend of 100% Ligero filler. This was reported to be one of the strongest most full-bodied cigars in the CAO portfolio.
