There was a great CAO cigar that came in a red lacquered box. One day it was gone. Everyone assumed it was sleeping with the fishes. A certain crew of guys who smoke CAO made us an offer we couldn’t refuse. They said bring back that wise guy cigar, or else. So we delivered the goods. CAO Consigliere is a straight sequel — the five-country blend is the same as before, the one that made it to Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 list in 2006.General Cigar Co.

Yes, for obvious reasons, they’re not allowed to say what exactly this cigar is. But the hints are strong enough to fully confirm this is the fan-favorite CAO The Sopranos Edition cigars from a decade back. Packaging is very similar, the name is Mob-esque (Italian for “advisor”), the blend is said to be identical, and CAO is unveiling a completely new lineup of vitolas (3 sizes at the cigar’s launch) at prices lower than the originals (no more royalties should help in that regard).
