CAO, owned by General Cigar Company, has announced a new extension to the brand’s Flathead line. The new line will be called the V21 and will be a limited edition series. The cigar uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, a Connecticut broadleaf binder, and a combination of Dominican Republic and Nicaraguan fillers. The V21 is offered in two sizes: a 60 ring by 152mm (6″) called the Carb. The larger cigar in the series is a 70 ring gauge by 178mm (7″) and is called the Big Block. Either size cigar will come in 27-count boxes. There will be only 2,000 boxes of each size produced. The Carb has an MSRP of $13.99 per cigar, with the Big Block having an MSRP of $14.99 a cigar.
General has announced that the V21 will be shipping in August 2021.
