You know I can’t resist getting one more contest in! CAO‘s Flathead line has been a favorite of mine since they came out, and I thought it was great, although a bit strange, that the V660 Carb got the number three spot on Cigar Aficionado’s top 25 of 2015. While I like them all, I think the V554 or V450 are a bit more to my liking, it’s awesome that they get the recognition they deserve for this blend. Rick Rodriguez is a great guy, with some great stories, and nailed it with the Flathead blend in my humble opinion. This year they added a motorcycle theme to the Flathead line with the Steel Horse Apehanger and Bullneck, with two major differences, these are offered in the round as opposed to being severely box pressed, and they have a Connecticut Habano Osciuro wrapper as opposed to the Connecticut Broadleaf of the original line. I dig the Steel Horse just about as much as the box pressed line, which is why I held on to this box of Steel Horse Apehanger for a special Happy New Year giveaway! The Apehanger is 5½” x 58, has the aforementioned Connecticut Habano Oscuro wrapper, a Brazilian Arapiraca binder and Honduran, Nicaraguan, and Dominican long-fillers. This is a box of 18 cigars, that still have the distinctive flat head, which in my experience is best handled with a large diameter bullet punch. Thank you, once again, to Victoria at General Cigar Co. for coming up big with this one!
