2015 #3 Cigar of the Year - Rated 95

Inspired by hot rods and pin-up girls, CAO Cigars Flathead is a box-pressed collection that hits on all cylinders. Hand-shaped to deliver a striking flat top, the cigar features a brawny Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and a blend that's heavy on Nicaraguan leaf. The tribute to muscle cars doesn't end there. The gorgeous Flathead box gives a nod to the muscle car as well, with a lid that's easily removed and used as wall art. There's also a collectible, pin-up girl flysheet that's enclosed in the box.

The CAO Flathead Maduro is very smooth and a pleasure to smoke. It was the standout in a sampler of Maduros that I bought..The consistency of the burn is impressive. The Flathead is currently my favorite cigar.

One of my favorites, along with its silver brethren , the 554. One of my tests for a good burn is whether it says lit while it's in the tray for a few minutes. It does. Flathead, along with LaGloria Serie R and Espinosa 601 Blue Label are always in the humidor. All are robust.

This cigar caught me by surprise. I ordered a 10 pack an made the mistake of lighting up one the day they were delivered. That first smoke left me a little disappointed, but after leaving the cigars sitting in my humidor for a few days I lit one up last night and was blown away. Full bodied, great flavor once it sat in the box and got re acclimated. Smooth cool smoke that I was able to take to the nub which is rare in my experience with a large cigar. My feeling is that the longer I let this one sit the better it will get. Great Schmoke!

If you have the inclination to sit back and spend time with it this cigar it will show it's appreciation in return. It's firm box pressed construction makes it a pleasure to hold in your hand or mouth. It's my cigar Club monthly choice so I smoke them regularly and I can tell you it's rare if ever that I have a bad burn or draw. A wonderful full flavor, an even burn, a great draw.....what else can you ask for

It truly is a good cigar; a bit a rough draw from time to time while smoking but not too bad. I've had lower rated cigars I thought were better than the 95 rated CAO Flathead. It's a beautifully rolled cigar; please don't misunderstand my criticism because the Flathead is overall a very good cigar. It is a great value i'm just not sure why it deserves a 95.

This is a great cigar. The only issue that I have is that its too big for me to smoke more often. It typically takes me about 2 hours to smoke. I don't have that much time on my hands usually, so I end up smoking less of them than I want. No REAL complaints though. Its perfect. One of my favs. Great price too!

This cigar is thick with a great taste. Even as a full bodied smoke, it doesn't overwhelm your palette or make you light headed. The only reason I gave it a 4 was because I had to re-light around the middle of the smoke, which ruins the tempo. This is my first try from CAO, but I will be back for others, most definitely.

Another fabulous smoke from CAO! Beautiful construction, easy draw, lots of thick white smoke, and just a perfect, consistent burn, which I haven't seen in a while. A peppery start with the first few puffs, then the cigar mellowed out and was simply delicious all the way through. Really smooth for a full bodied cigar. I smoked the V660; I'd definitely pick up a pack or a box of these, and I'm going to add to the collection with the V554's. A++++

I am a dyed in the wool GURKHA smoker but this CAO 6/60 Flathead just became one of my top 5 favorite smokes. I hope they can keep the quality the same over time. I know blending is very important for the flavor I desire. Rolling is also of critical importance. I feel that even some of the best manufacturers don't pay enough attention to the sorting tables. You can start a great smoke and then in the middle, stems & plugs. It can ruin an otherwise great smoking experience. Like life itself, enjoyment is in the small details.
