The CAO Amazon Basin, which debuted in 2014, is making a return to retailers. The blend is available in a 6 x 52 ($14.29) that began shipping this week.
The blend features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and Dominican and Colombian filler.
“When we launched Amazon Basin a decade ago, we debuted Amazonian tobacco to the world and created a smoking experience that was completely different from anything on the market,” Ed Lahmann, senior brand manager said in a press release. “We’re pleased to release the special blend again this year. And while we are not disclosing production figures, the number of boxes we’re releasing this year is down from 2022 because of the scarcity of tobacco and the care it requires. My advice to CAO fans is if you see Amazon Basin, be sure to get your hands on it.”
CAO Amazon Basin comes in 18-count rustic wooden boxes.
