Default R.I.P. Cano Ozgener

The founder of CAO Cigars, Cano Ozgener, passed away last night/this morning. Quite an interesting man.

I'm sure there are members of this site who knew him personally, perhaps they can fill in this thread with more details about Mr. Ozgener.

RIP. Back in the day before the buyout/merge/whatever, the cigars were pretty good.

Never met him but loved CAO in the day and he was one of the early rock stars peddling crappy infused cigars with the flavorette girls. Then he actually started making good cigars peaking with the Traviata before selling.

The cigar mini-boom post boom.
