Rick Rodriguez, head blender at CAO, on the inspiration behind the Concert by CAO.
Hello, I’m Rick Rodriguez the Head Blender for CAO. I’m here to talk about the Concert. There’s a story behind the Concert. What the Concert is, is I want to honor CAO in their home of Nashville.
When CAO was founded, they were based in Nashville, so when I visit Nashville I think of music. So, I wanted to honor CAO in their home base for a long time in Nashville. So, I created Concert. Concert is a very spicy cigar, very good blend. I love that blend. It’s going to be a medium body cigar, have a Honduran wrapper. It’s just unique because it’s going to deliver you spice, but not too hot that you can’t handle it. It’s about flavor. When I searched for that cigar I wanted flavor over body and I think we achieved that goal for Concert.
The look of Concert is very unique. The box represents an amp. Everything works for that cigar to honor Nashville. So if you look at the box it looks like an amp. If you look at the band, the band has a band of guitars and all that. Very unique, very music themed. I love listening to music smoking cigars. It’s just an all around great cigar. So, hopefully you guys are going to enjoy that cigar.
