CAO was founded in 1968, and its factory is located in Nicaragua. A company is rich with history; their passion is creating new cigars using unique and rare tobaccos. CAO Cigars are made by the people and for the people. Blending, fermenting, package design−a lot goes into creating new cigars. CAO is about listening to fans and learning as much as possible about their preferences and tastes; then, they use that knowledge to create smokes that you’ll love.
CAO Cigars are made by General Cigar Co., the premium cigar subsidiary of Scandinavian Tobacco Group, one of the world's largest cigar producers. The company is known primarily for producing non-Cuban versions of brands like Cohiba, Hoyo de Monterrey, Punch, La Gloria Cubana, and Partagas. General Cigar, though, has also achieved commercial and critical success with brands like CAO and Macanudo. These brands are produced throughout the cigar-making world, as General owns factories in Honduras, the Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua.
