CAO Pilon Gigante
CAO Pilon Gigante Natural
CAO Pilon is a very special CAO using an old method of fermentation that dates back to the 19th century in Cuba where it originated.
They do this Pilon method by taking “hands:” of tobacco leaves and placing them on top of each other where the leaves are left basically in a huge pile where they ferment. Heat builds up in the center of the batch of the leaves and spreads through this is a very time consuming process that gives the leaves a very rich and deep flavor though out the tobacco.
Curious about this method and how it affects the cigars? Buy some cut em, light em, smoke em, and experience the difference!
