The CAO America Potomac features a bold stars-and-stripes logo. However, its claim to being American goes deeper. The filler of this cigar contains choice tobaccos from America, Nicaragua, Italy, and the Dominican Republic. This filler blend is kept intact using a Brazilian tobacco binder. This cigar has two Connecticut wrappers, the first layer is a golden, shade-grown wrapper while the outer wrapper is a chocolate-colored Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro. This combination creates a pinstripe pattern that adds visual appeal to the cigar. Light it up and you will taste hints of roasted nut and oak, followed by whiffs of leather and spices. The cigar has a thread of sweetness running through it and you will notice earthy tones as you smoke.
Providing a full-bodied, delicious smoke, this handcrafted cigar burns steadily, with a light and even draw. This Potomac is a robusto cigar with a ring gauge of 56 and a length of 5 inches. 20 cigars come well packed in a sturdy box that aims to keep the smokes intact and whole.
