OSA SOL by CAO (video)

Rick Rodriguez, head blender for CAO, took a few minutes to talk to us about the inspiration for his first blend for the company, OSA SOL.

Transcript:

Hello, I’m Rick Rodriguez, the Head Blender for CAO. I’m here to talk about the CAO OSA, my first blend for CAO. That wrapper is from a state in Honduras called Olancho, and the farm that we chose in Olancho was St. Augustine. And I shortened that for OSA. When you’re smoking that cigar, I think it’s a mild to medium bodied cigar, a lot of flavor. I wanted to create a cigar for flavor, not body. And I want you to be able to enjoy this cigar any time of the day, any time of the night. So this is a rich, creamy cigar, love the blend.

The box is very unique, too, because it represents to me, the barn. The barn on that property or that farm is a whitewashed barn. It’s very unique. As a matter of fact, it is the only whitewashed barn in Honduras. And so, I took that look for that box or that barn and made my box. There’s a river running through that farm, too. So I incorporated that river effect but very unique looking box, very good cigar.
