Many cigar aficionados like a few powerful smokes on their list of favorites for those times they want to be energized and perhaps rocked just a bit. One label that is being added to more and more of the humidors of full-bodied fans is the CAO Lx2 Cigars line. Following the very successful MX2 and CS2 cigars, the LX2 label adds a potent option to the roster of quality, dynamic cigars from CAO. The name represents "Ligero times 2" which means that there is twice the kick in these sticks, a blending decision created by the higher demand for knockout cigars in today's market.
CAO Lx2 possesses full-bodied flavor, inspired by tobacco grown on the 140-acre "Pueblo Nuevo" farm located just outside of Condega, Nicaragua. This bold smoke features a sungrown Nicaraguan wrapper, Honduran binder, and two different ligero fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Made for cigar smokers who want a shorter smoke with lots of power, the "BAM" frontmark scored a 92 from Cigar Aficionado and was named as "Best Bargain Cigar of 2011."
