CAO is bringing back the limited-edition Zócalo as a full time addition to its lineup, adding two additional sizes.
The Zócalo, named for a celebratory city square in Mexico, was first released in 2018 in a 6 x 60 with a Mexican wrapper. The return will include two new front marks.
The Zócalo features a special Morron wrapper leaf grown in the San Andrés Valley, with a Cameroon binder and Nicaraguan filler. It will come in a Robusto (5 x 52) at $7.99 per, a Toro ( 6 x 50) at $8.49 a stick and a 6 x 60 Gigante for $8.99 a cigar. It will come packaged in 20-count boxes in the green, white and red colors of the Mexican flag.
“Two years ago, we tested a blend with a wrapper from Mexico, launching Zócalo in a 6 x 60,” CAO’s blender Rick Rodriguez said in a statement. “The response was very positive. The only negative feedback we received was that the blend came in just one size. Our fans told us that they would definitely support Zócalo if we had more sizes to offer. Fast forward to 2021 and here we are launching Zócalo as a permanent, three-cigar line.”
