CAO Arcana Firewalker LE Toro Extra
CAO’s Arcana series is focused on employing unusual techniques to bring on a “completely unique smoking experience.” So put this Arcana Firewalker limited edition cigar on your list of smokes to reach for when you want something a little different. Variety is still the spice of life, and so we’re almost always ready for some experimentation from cigarmakers.
This isn’t experimentation, though. This is a throwback cigar.
Firewalker cigars feature tobacco prepared using the chincagre method. This is a way to ferment tobacco that involves burying it underground in Nicaragua’s rich volcanic soil. It’s not that much of a departure from the more standard process, where tobacco leaves are stacked up in pilones for fermentation. Instead of having the pilones in an open storage facility, they’re soaking up that terroir in a way that no other leaves do.
After that, they’re brought back into the warehouse with the rest of the tobacco for a more carefully controlled fermentation period of around 9 months.
This limited-edition Firewalker cigar is a hefty 6.5 x 56 toro extra. It packs in the specially fermented long-fillers, wraps them in a Nicaraguan binder, and then finishes off the stogie with an Ecuadorian habano rosado wrapper.
So what does it all come to, once you get it lit? Can you taste the ancient magic coming through? Well, it’s tasty. The blend is, unsurprisingly, earthy and chocolatey. Cedar is also at the core, complemented by black pepper that can really spike into an intense kick of heat. The cigar develops, often showing very raw notes of mineral and herbs. It’s a very natural blend and one that fans of a more unrefined profile will probably enjoy.
This one is available for a limited time. So, before the coals go out: come, fire walk with us.
