The Zócalo cigars are a nod to Mexico and Mexican tobacco, as it is named for a main square in Mexico City that is now known as Plaza de la Constitución. The blend uses a Mexican San Andrés morron wrapper over a Cameroon binder and fillers from Nicaragua.
Now the Zócalo line returns with the same blend but updated packaging for both the boxes and bands, which draw inspiration from the Mexican flag. The original’s bands depicted the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven, a prominent Catholic church in the plaza.
The line will also be getting two new sizes, as the original 6 x 60 vitola will return and join a robusto and toro:
- CAO Zócalo Robusto (5 x 52)
- CAO Zócalo Toro (6 x 50)
- CAO Zócalo Gigante (6 x 60)
