Cars and Cigars; Daffodil Day on Nantucket

T
he daffodils are here and the Spring Season is getting revved up on Nantucket. Make it big and bold by choosing the CAO Flathead 554 Camshaft for your smoke. Inspired by the cars of yesteryear, Flatheads are a box-pressed collection of cigars named after engine parts. The Connecticut broadleaf wrapper and Nicaraguan filler make as much of an impact as the vintage rides they represent.

The wrapper is dark chocolate brown, oily, and inviting. The cigar is hand-made with a unique flat-top head; the roll is tight but the draw is nice and easy, slapping the palate with a kick of black pepper. That spice is present on the first puff too, but after an inch of ash it gives way to bittersweet cocoa. After the first third, a rich earthiness rolls in as the cigar continues to burn perfectly even. A classic cigar for your classic car.
