General Cigar Company have announced the CAO Flathead V23 which continues the high performance motorsport theme of the Flathead series. The V23 draws its inspiration from the Ford GT40 which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans 3 straight times in the 1960’s. The V23 box features the GT40 color scheme as well as tufted leather on the box lid.
Senior brand manager Ed Lahmann said, “The new CAO V23 celebrates 100 years of Le Mans and the American muscle car that took the racing world by storm.”
Ed continued, “V23 has the large-ring, box-pressed, full-bodied attributes of its predecessor blends, and that’s where the similarities end. This smoke is about power, for sure, but it’s more about power and finesse. Just as a legendary racecar like the GT40 MK1 had substance and style, so does V23. This is a cigar lover’s cigar because it’s got body and nuance and is a true pleasure to smoke. We’re excited to share V23 with the fans of CAO.”
