This week i take a look at the CAO America Anthem once again. I got a hold of a few of these and am going to try and keep them to smoke one or two a year and I figured it was July 4th, so I might as well light one up and chat at the camera. No writeup to speak of but here is a link to my previous review of this cigar ORIGINAL CAO AMERICA ANTHEM REVIEW
That will give you the run down of the cigar. I have a question in the video about storage also so if you do watch, I would appreciate your thoughts.
I wish they would still be making these, like I said in the video. Lower the price point and put them in 10 count boxes. Price was just way too high to justify buying many of them.
Stay tuned at the end for a video of my little friend.

For long term storage, I would definitely keep the coffins in the celo. For medium term storage (1-3 years), I would take off the outer celo and keep the cigars in the coffins. For shorter term storage, I would also take celo off the cigars, but I would likely keep them in the coffins (I guess depending on how aromatic the wood is).
I have a 2009 Camacho Liberty that I’ve been aging. Granted, the coffins were never cellophaned, but I have kept the cigar in it’s coffin with the tissue paper wrapping around the cigar. Most of the sides of the coffin are bare wood, so I figure that it is permeable to the humidification in my humidor. I have always just kept them together and I have never encountered a problem.
Even though I live in Australia I thought I would get into the 4th of July spirit.
Over the last couple of days I’ve smoked a couple CAO America ” constitutions” ( bought locally through a cigar shop at Aus $32.00 each,no joke)
Great cigar though a little tight on the draw and a few issues with the wrapper when I guillotined the cap,
Second cigar I punched using an 11 mm punch, no issues with the wrapper unravelling but still a tight draw!
I was amazed at the size of that stogie, wow!!
I wanna try one of those!
I have some Camaco liberties, interested in thoughts on storage also, currently they are in there coffins in my humidor,
Personally I would leave them in their coffins In cello in my humidor.
Sometimes this is the best place for great quality entertainment (both in content and production) and sometimes I feel like I just wasted my time. This is one of those wasted my time moments. LOL. Come on Mike! I’ve seen you on Stogie411…you can do better!
Thanx for the responses! I figured as long as the coffins were not overly aromatic the cigars should be fine in them. I will keep them all bundled up nice and warm to last for winters to come.
Kevin – Hopefully next post will be more up your alley 🙂
Love your little buddy at the end!
Would be interested in what you think about the CAO Sinister Sam – another limited edition take on the CAO America, but at a bit more accessible price point.
I saw that one at a local shop but never snagged it. I may have to grab a few to see what’s up. Thank you for the suggestion!
