Very few cigars retain their shine for as long as the legendary CAO L’Anniversaire Cameroon.
One of the first major releases to ever use toothy African Cameroon as its wrapper, the L’Anniversaire Cameroon was launched in 1999 to commemorate the CAO company’s 30 year anniversary. Blended using a sweet and savory Cameroon leaf around the finest of Nicaraguan tobaccos, the L’Anniversaire Cameroon (then known as L’Anniversaire 1968-1998) was popular from the start. The cigar would go on to appear on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 list many times, most notably when it garnered an impressive 92 rating in 2004.
Fast-forward to present day, and this medium-bodied masterpiece has lost none of its luster, even when considered in the company of today’s unprecedented wide selection of high-quality premium cigars. In fact, if anything, it’s got more luster than ever, thanks to a snazzy new packaging makeover.
New for 2021, the CAO L’Anniversaire Cameroon Perfecto measures in at a compact 4 x 48, every inch of which is packed with audacious flavor. Balanced, nutty, toasty, and riddled with delicious little nuances, the Perfecto shape delivers this timeless blend’s dynamic profile with more style and grace than ever before.
As an added perk, those shiny metallic green bands with red accents are going to look great this holiday season. These always-tasty smokes give off an expensive aura, even though we’re letting them go for an embarrassingly-low price right here.
