Halfwheel gave the Amazon Anaconda 91-rating and said, “Somewhat out of nowhere, General Cigar Co. has stumbled upon a bonafide hit…This is a plethora of flavors—some super smooth and others rough—but they combine into a highly enjoyable symphony of flavors.
Following up on their acclaimed Brazilian Anaconda and Amazon Basin releases, CAO takes us back to the Amazon with the CAO Amazon Anaconda. This much hyped cigar combines the Brazilian Bragança tobaccos found in the Amazon Basin and Fuma Em Corda.
Featuring some of the rarest Tobaccos around, the Amazon Anaconda offers a smoking experience unlike any other. With its dark, leathery Bahiano Habano wrapper and tobacco vein coiling around the uncapped head it is clear where the inspiration for the name Anaconda came from. The unique and bold cord that wraps around this cigar is so appealing, that a wrapper would be superfluous.
Complementing the Bahiano wrapper, the Colombian, Dominican, Brazilian Braganca, and Fume em Corda filler produce a complex blend of flavors that needs to be experienced to fully comprehend. With its rare tobacco composition, we can’t say just how long this line will be around, but we do know that it will be a limited production that will reward the cigar lover that manage to grab a box when they hit the shelves.
