From CAO’s website, “A Pilon is a carefully layered stack of tobacco leaves that helps ferment the tobacco to maximize the flavor and color of the leaves. Dating back to 19th century Cuba, this natural method of fermentation delivers a superior taste and appearance that can’t be reached otherwise. CAO Pilon uses this time-honored method to give you a cigar with deep, rich colors and unprecedented depths of flavor. “

CAO achieves superior flavor in the Pilon be using an age old tobacco curing process. They group their tobacco (referred to as a Pilon) in smaller bunches, and cure them at lower temperatures over a longer period of time. The result is a blend with exemplary notes of wood, earth, a touch of pepper, and a raisiny sweetness.
