|When most tobacco enthusiasts hear the name CAO they probably think about extraordinary cigars at the top of most connoisseursâ€™ lists of premium smokes. However many smokers have no idea that they started as a pipe company. For many years they were the premier importer of high-quality meerschaum pipes to the US. In fact CAO continued to make pipes exclusively until 1992. Now they have their own line of pipe tobaccos which use the same skillful blending technique used in their Flavours line of cigars. If you love aromatics whether it be in cigars or pipe tobacco nobody does it better than CAO. Once you try these deliciously fragrant blends it will be very hard to choose a favorite.
