Over the past few weeks, CAO Cigars has quietly shipped a regional release called the CAO Natural Disasters series.  The cigars each have a theme of a “natural disaster” event for the particular region it is being shipped to.  Various retailers have now reported receiving these products.

The Southeastern United States will receive a 2014 edition of the CAO Hurricane.  Last year, the CAO Hurricane was a national limited production release.  This cigar is based on being the winning blend in the CAO Last Stick Standing Contest (known as blend “O”).

The other regional releases include the CAO Heatwave (going to the Northeast), the CAO Cyclone (going to the Midwest), and CAO Earthquake (going to the West).  These are new limited production blends.  Each of these releases will be released in a 6 x 54 vitola in ten count boxes.  These are believed to be new blends by CAO.

At a glance, here is what is being reported on the blends.
