When most people think of Nashville, Tennessee, they hear country music. The robust flavors of fine cigars never come to mind. True cigar enthusiasts with a real passion for flavor know better. This American city was the the original home of CAO cigars.
CAO cigars have been produced for more than 40 years right in the heart of country music’s capital city. This line of products is one of the most popular in the world and was founded by an engineer who worked for Dupont at the time of it's founding. Cano Ozenger, was an Armenian Turk who loved smoking cigars and pipes. In the early days of the company, when cigar smoking wasn't as prevalent, Ozenger focused on making humidors and meerschaum pipes to keep the business afloat. Though, they continued to make some cigars all along, it wasn't until 1995 that CAO got serious about making cigars again. Early on, CAO attracted smokers to their sticks with flashy, modern, and exciting packaging and ad campaigns. They kept those smokers by producing solid and consistent cigars day in and day out.
Today CAO cigars are favored the world over and are sold on every continent except Antarctica. In 2011, the CAO brand was sold to the tobacco mega-conglomerate General Cigar. The CAO OSA, released at IPCPR 2011, will be the first cigar produced under the auspices of General Cigar.
