This is a discussion on LX2?? within the Meet the Manufacturer forums, part of the Cigar Specialty Forums category; Jon, you been holding out on us?? What info can you give us on this new smoke? I know that ...
Here is a bit more gleaned from the press release.
CAO Lx2 (“Ligero-times-two”) is a full-bodied, full-flavored cigar named for the priming of the tobacco plant which produces a leaf that is dark, strong, and spicy. CAO Lx2 combines a Nicaraguan wrapper with a Honduran binder, and incorporates two different ligero filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. “The inspiration for Lx2 came from a small growing field in Nicaragua called Pueblo Nuevo,” said CAO President Tim Ozgener. “Pueblo Nuevo is a 140-acre farm outside of Condega (Nicaragua) where tobacco is grown exclusively for CAO and Toraño brands. We found that tobacco from this particular farm yields an abundance of strength while retaining a nice, earthy sweetness. The taste profile played perfectly into what we were looking for with the Lx2 concept.”
Packaged in boxes of 20 cigars, CAO Lx2 will be available in three shapes: Rob (5" x 4, Toro (6" x 50), and the torpedo-shaped Beli (6 1/2" x 52), and will have a suggested retail price range of $6 to $8 per cigar.
So, CAO.... Are you going to be giving out any free samples of the LX2 to the people that posted in this thread?
