Bdawg says:  This is one monstrously big cigar.  CAO's Flat Head line pays homage to muscle cars.  The Flat Head Steel Horse line pays homage to motorcycle culture.

The wrapper is very dark brown, oily, and well constructed.  The draw is easy producing a white and gray ash.  The flavor is oak, coffee, and pepper.  The burn was slow and even. 

My first task was to figure out how to cut this huge sucker.  No cutter would do.  So I had to bring out the scissors.

What a big cigar!

I enjoyed this cigar with a Stillwater Debutante.
