CAO the SOPRANOS Edition Takes ‘INSIDER’ Track to the Best Cigars of 2006

CAO Rates Among The Best Cigars In Cigar Insider 2006 Recap

Nashville, December 20, 2006: CAO, one of the world’s foremost premium cigar manufacturers, received high praises for its very popular CAO The SopranosSM Edition Cigar line in the December 19 issue of Cigar Insider, ranking it among the highest-rated cigar brands of 2006.
The twice-monthly newsletter produced by Cigar Aficionado, widely regarded as the ultimate authority on premium cigars, rated over 80 different cigar brands and 285 cigars from around the world in 2006. With an average score of ‘89’ (“EXCELLENT”), CAO The SopranosSM Edition ranked among the top 15 in average score by brand, outscoring such legendary Cuban brands as Cohiba (88.3), Trinidad (87.5), Ramon Allones (87.0) and Romeo y Julieta (86.5). “We are very proud of this recognition,” commented CAO President Tim Ozgener. “We invested a great deal of time in developing the blend of this special cigar; in order to get the complexity and richness we were looking for, the blend ultimately required tobaccos from five different countries of origin.”
CAO The SopranosSM Edition was chosen as one of the “Top 25 Cigars of 2005” according to Cigar Aficionado magazine, widely recognized as the ultimate authority on premium cigars. For more information on CAO The SopranosSM Edition, please visit
