Spotted via CAO's instagram account, CAO Fuma Em Corda is the newest extension to the popular Amazon Basin line.
One major question has been answered according to the article referenced in CAOs bio link; The Fuma Em Corda WILL be a distinct blend from the Basin.
- Wrapper: Ecuadoran Sumatra
- Binder: Nicaraguan
- Filler: Dominican Republic, Colombian, Brazilian Braganca
Fuma Em Corda
- Wrapper: Honduran colorado
- Binder: Cameroon
- Filler from Honduras, Nicaragua and Brazilian Bragança and Arapiraca .
Arapiraca, which is another Brazillian tobacco was not utilized in the original Basin. Arapiraca uses a different fermenting process, which this line is named for, as the tobacco leaves are left wound tight to ropes vs the Braganca which fermentes stored in tightly packed tubes.
According to the article it will come in two vitolas, a B&M shop exclusive 5x50 robusto, and a 6x58 toro for online and catalog sales. Pricing is $8.99-$10.49 per stick.
