We are publishing an interview with Tim Ozgener next month and I wanted everyone to have a chance to submit questions for Mr. Ozgener. We've done this for our last few interviews and quite a few of our members questions were included in the final interview.

If you have a question for Tim about C.A.O. cigars, please post it on this thread. I'll try to include as many of your questions as possible. The interview will be published here on Cigar Weekly next month.

A couple of questions...

1. Who makes your cigar boxes? They are beautifully finished.

2. Any chance of putting out a video about cigar rolling, box making, and a factory tour?

SSJ...I'm good at what I do. What is it that I do again?!!!
SSJ... Herfin' in the Heartland
I can't help it, I have an excuse. What was that excuse again?

Rod: thanks for the opportunity to ask some questions. Here are mine:

1. How many employees does CAO have?
2. How involved are the Ozgeners in the development of the blends for each line?
3. Since CAO does not have a manufacturing component, how much time must be spent on Quality Control/Production related issues, and how is quality monitored?

I'm a big fan of the CAO line and look forward to this interview.

Unklebill, I have seen them offered in the Thompson Cigar Co. catalog. They also have the CAO "Oscuro" which is a Maduro.

Just to keep things interesting and since there is more to life than cigars:

"What is your favorite baseball team?"
"What was the last good book you read?"
"If you could have dinner with any three people (dead or alive), who would they be?"

This calls for a very special blend of psychology and extreme violence.

Tim, which is your "GO TO" C.A.O. cigar?
I'm pretty sure your Dad's is the Gold Torp, Cause that's what I saw him smoking at "The Big Smoke" in NYC.

FYI, I photograph cigars.
