C.A.O. International Inc. Adds Sizes to Several Lines

C.A.O. International Inc. has added new sizes to its existing brands. The C.A.O. Italia line, which was introduced in 2004, now has two additional vitolas in its portfolio. The 6 1/2 inch by 50 ring gauge Largo, the first tubed cigar in the line, is available in boxes of five and retails for $6.80 per cigar.

The Positano, a 6 inch by 50 ring cigar, was also added to the Italia series. It retails for $6.20 and comes in boxes of 20 cigars.

The additions bring the Italia line to seven sizes. The brand is named for the Italian tobacco within the blend, which is uncommon for cigars.

C.A.O. has also added a fourth size to its C.A.O. America line called the Anthem. It is a giant 8 1/2 inch by 50 ring cigar that comes individually coffined and retails for $14.50 per cigar.
