CAO Launches Two Expressions of the Same Blend With the New FASA Line



CAO is launching two new collections called CAO FASA Sol and CAO FASA Noche. The lines share the same blend yet offer unique smoking experiences due to their distinctive wrappers.

Ed Lahmann, senior brand manager explains, “We built CAO FASA on a versatile, nuanced blend that combines a Cameroon binder with fillers from the Dominican Republic and three Nicaraguan growing regions. From this foundation, we set out to highlight the importance of the wrapper on the overall experience of the cigar. CAO FASA Sol and CAO FASA Noche could not be more alike, yet they could not be more different. They’re literally like night and day, and still perfect for either occasion. This is what CAO is all about…taking our fans on a journey through the tobaccos we choose.”

CAO FASA Sol and FASA Noche will be available as full-time additions to the CAO portfolio. Both blends will be offered in a Toro and Gigante format, packed in 24-count boxes and shipped to retail on April 1. 

CAO FASA Sol is handcrafted in Honduras at HATSA and features a Honduran Olancho San Agustin (OSA) wrapper. Blended to offer a seamless transition from start to finish, FASA Sol gradually increases in strength to a medium plus profile, as its nuances build from roasted almonds to five-spice and toast. This is a captivating smoke that engages from draw to retrohale. 

CAO FASA Noche is handcrafted at STG Esteli in Nicaragua where artisans crown the blend with a Connecticut-grown Broadleaf wrapper. Its effect on the blend is bold and transformative. The cigar has a medium-bodied and full-flavored profile, layered with nuances of molasses, white pepper, chili powder and dark roast coffee. 

CAO FASA Sol Toro (6” x 50); SRP per cigar $6.99

CAO FASA Sol Gigante (6” x 60); SRP per cigar $7.99

CAO FASA Noche Toro (6” x 50); SRP per cigar $6.99
