This is the best medium bodied stick EVER!!! I’ve always smoked full bodied cigars this is the first medium stick that I’ve liked. I would say it’s mild to medium, very smooth and rich flavors. I puffed on it for two hours and found myself wanting more when it was done. The construction of this cigar is top notch!!! I don’t try to keep the ash on but this stick had almost half the cigar as ash before it fell off. This is going into my standard rotation right now!!! I cant tell you how impressed I am with this stick! I’m not one that looks for rating when trying different cigars but this one got a 92 from AF.

Great Cigar, Taste is amazing. I usually enjoy my sticks w/ a cup of coffee. I had this one w/ new castle beer. Paired really well for me. I lit it kinda awkwardly, it burned it self evenly after a few puffs. Very patriotic band! Merca! I will purchase again. I highly recommend!

This thing was awesome. Great burn and construction. The cigar also looks great with the bands and lighter leaf twisting throughout the wrapper. Idk if there’s a specific term for that, but the flavors are great. I got a lemon lime flavor throughout most of the cigar, it was like a less sweet version of Sprite. I’ll probably be buying a box of these at some point. Try it!
Smoke time, 50 minutes solid. It was another hardcore 9 hour day of working the liquor store, a dude even asked me if we had Marlboro Lights and where he could get a cigar. I almost walked off the job at that point, jokes.
Here in the desert it is a ripe chore to maintain a huidor – I really feel bad for the dude because cigars from shops here need some intensive care before they become smokable, he said he was new in town and there are enough mericans in town for me to know… they were shut and the most I could offer him in terms of cigars was a photo of my stash on my phone as well as a shout out about Cigars Daily.
More to the point, its all about a thorough light up. If the light is good from the get go, I find the burn to always be even and this Potomac burns real even.
The ash was impressive, I should really start taking photos of various ash lengths, because this one didn’t fall off until it got so close to the third, 3rd its not funny.
I had to really think about how to rate this cigar. For me it is 95, all points lost going to length – if this is available in a Churchill or even a toro. I would so be like ‘yes please sir, I will take 10.’
This thing is just so good, I could buy a box but the band(s) on the CAO Potomac leads me to believe that these should only be smoked on 7/4, Christmas day, boxing day, new years eve and day, thanks giving day (American and probably Canadian as well). On Easter, or while watching any of the Marvel movies…
From the flavour to the aroma, the Potomac checks every box in the list of expectations except for the one size robusto deal.
It turned out to be a breezy night, I’d call it at about 65 degrees, so I poured me a glass of iced coffee and a glass of Gentleman Jack, then punch cut whichever one got picked. There is nothing much better than a cigar on a pleasantly cool, dry night.
The cold draw gave me a bit of pepper, after lighting was a constantly firm medium amount of smoke output.
Just the flavour, what an amazing bend. Definitely creamy to the point of rich – appearances of raw coffee bean notes and coco.
Aromas of chocolate and leather, absolutely mouthwatering. The retrohale, a definite medium spice that doesn’t linger and a faint hint of cinnamon that makes one think ‘wow, was that really a cinnamon flavour?’

Personally I think this is the best cigar from the CAO World lineup. Good burn and construction. Dark notes of leather, coffee and chocolate. Rough appearance but dont let that fool you. All around a good smoke.

I’m a BIG fan of CAO. The Brazilia is my favorite by far but man does this stick give it a run for it’s money!
The America takes some dark chocolate notes along with the leather and adds just a hint of spice that I can’t place. It’s smooth and well balanced that walks the edge of medium to med-full bodied. I wouldn’t say it’s strong enough to knock you out, but it’s got just enough strength to make you pace yourself.
For a great everyday smoke, or one to puff on while sitting in a lounge with friends, you can’t beat this cigar.

Lots of cream with oaky notes. Very good flavor! Decent smoke clouds. Razor sharp even burn. Great stick. Used a punch cut and had a nice smooth draw.
