cao america review

CAO’s tribute to their adopted homeland is a tasty, satisfying super-premium that’s sure to have you singing the Star Spangled Banner all the way through. Part of the now famous “World” series, America is a bold blend featuring red, white and blue on the bands and boxes. This unique cigar boasts a one of a kind four country long-filler mix of Dominican, Nicaraguan, Italian and American tobaccos. The resulting blend is a full-bodied beauty that earned a 92 rating from Cigar Aficionado back when it was released.

CAO America combines two beautiful wrapper leaves, including a golden Connecticut shade and a dark Connecticut Broadleaf maduro for a distinctive pinstripe appearance. This is complemented by a spicy Brazilian binder and a blend of 100% ligero filler from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, and Italy. This is the perfect blend for a country that’s a true melting pot.

Beijing-based artist and documentarian Cao Fei uses pop aesthetics and fantasy with documentary and social commentary to explore a world of new riches as China experiences rapid economic change. In this work, she captures the lives of nouveau riche businessmen, musicians, security guards, maids, manicurists and sex workers who inhabit a compartmentalized, alienating apartment complex in search for human connection. This film is a co-production between the Center for Asian American Media and Walking Iris Media.
