Once lit, the CAO America Potomac burns evenly for the most part with solid ash and a good draw.  CAO claims that the Potomac is a full bodied smoke, and it is, but not so much at the beginning.  When you first light it you get some hints of nuts and coffee, which are mostly smooth.  It then picks up a bit and moves towards a woody flavor, and then finally ends up with a bold, leather taste that carries it to the finish.

The CAO America Potomac is a good smoke.  Its flavors keep it interesting, and it also has a nice, even burn.  The highlight, though, is definitely its looks.  It’s a great cigar to have on a national holiday like the Fourth of July, or whenever you feel like showing off your American pride to others.  While it does have some medium-bodied tendencies, it is mostly full-bodied.  Those who enjoy full-bodied cigars should enjoy it, although its flavor may be a bit much for beginners.  You can find the CAO America Potomac for a bit under $7 for a single.  You can also find the cigar in its attractive boxes of 20 as well.  For its even burn, interesting flavor, attractive appearance, and patriotism, the CAO America Potomac earns a perfect four star rating.

CAO Black VR Totem

The original CAO Black was the first cigar for the manufacturer that helped put it on the cigar industry map several years ago.  Its successful introduction to the smoking world paved the way for more CAO cigars.  The more recently released CAO Black VR is the Maduro version of the original.  Consider it a tribute to the cigar that started it all for the company. 

The CAO Black VR Totem measures 5x50, although it also comes in five other sizes.  It’s considered a medium-bodied smoke with tons of flavor and is manufactured in Danli, Honduras at the CAO Fabrica de Tabacos.  For your Spanish lesson of the day, fabrica means factory.  Its filler is a combination of aged tobacco from Nicaragua and Mexico.  It has a Brazilian binder, and a Brazilian Maduro Arapiraca wrapper that adds some sweetness to its flavor.
