CAO Cigars newest creation is named after Dice and Dominos and is called CAO Bones. The Bones line is inspired by these games and the memories they create when playing with friends and having a cigar.
Rick Rodriguez, CAO’s brand ambassador, said, “Bones is about kicking back with your friends with a cold beer in your hand, playing a game, smoking, grilling, talking a little trash, and having the time of your life. And that’s what CAO is about, too. It’s about being yourself, enjoying the people you’re with, and not having a care in the world while you’re having your cigar. Most of us need a break right now, and Bones is just the cigar for that.”
The blend is made up of a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, over a Connecticut Shade binder and fillers from Honduras (Jamastran, La Entrada), Nicaragua (Esteli) and the Dominican Republic (Piloto Cubano). Production is handled by the STG Esteli factory in Nicaragua.
CAO Bones comes in four different sizes, all named after different games of Dominos:
- Blind Hughie: 54 x 152 mm (6″), $7.99

- Maltese Cross: 60 x 152 mm (6″), $8.99
- Matador: 54 x 184 mm (7.25″), $8.49
The cigars come in twenty-count boxes, and each box contains a pair of dice. CAO Bones is set to ship to retailers on August 4.
