The blue glow from your retailer's humidor is most likely the inner lid of an open Sensi-Box, the sleek, luminescent humidor housing the new C.A.O. Vision cigar. Originally scheduled for release in November, the Vision's commercial launch was pushed to late February to allow for additional aging. The cigar comes in boxes resembling laptop computers, and each holds 20 cigars. Each is outfitted with a Humidipak and should maintain 69 percent humidity for approximately two months. The Sensi-Box also includes a digital hygrometer and a black, soft-shell carrying case. The Vision is the first C.A.O. cigar made in the Dominican Republic. The cigar comes in three sizes, and is made by La Aurora S.A. from Dominican wrapper and binder, and filler from Nicaragua, Brazil and the Dominican Republic.
