CAO Fuma Em Corda | October's Currently Smoking Cigar of The Month
Back to the Basin!
CAO Amazon Basin was one of the most popular new CAO cigars in years. It was only a matter of time before a follow-up was announced. And lucky for all of us CAO fans, turns out that this Amazon experiment is bound for a trilogy! Enter phase two: CAO Fuma em Corda, a full-bodied blend like no other.
CAO Fuma Em Corda cigars feature a dark and oily Honduran wrapper over a three-country blend of aged tobaccos highlighted with Brazilian Arapiraca tobaccos from Brazil. These rare and fine tobaccos from the Amazon Basin are packed tightly into twine-like cords called carottes where the already aged leaves are compacted and sweated for an additional six months of fermentation. The finished product is medium to full body with a rich flavor profile of coffee, black pepper spice, caramel, and a long lasting sweet tobacco finish. These limited edition premium cigars are poised to offer you a uniquely delicious smoking experience.
The word “unique” gets thrown around a lot. But here, it’s the real McCoy. The tobacco used in the Fuma em Corda is bound by tightly wound ropes and left to ferment, a technique native to the tobacco farmers of Brazil. The Braganca tobacco inside undergoes a different process — compressed and fermented for six months into tightly wound tubes. Add a Honduran Oscuro wrapper and Cameroon binder and you’ll find a woody flavor, with spiciness and an incredibly long finish. Our recommendation? Jump aboard this posthaste, or get left behind.
The cigar is named after the fermentation technique applied to the Brazilian Arapiraca tobacco. According to the company, the Arapiraca leaves are bound by tightly wound ropes and left to ferment. General says the technique was borrowed from the native peoples who harvest tobacco in the Alagoas region of Brazil. The natives are said to call the resulting tobacco "fuma em corda."
The Bragança tobacco undergoes a different process. It's packed tightly into tubes called carottes where the leaves are naturally compressed for six months of fermentation, similar to andullo tobacco, which is also compressed into dense cylinders.
