The CAO America cigar honors its namesake with it’s two wrappers grown right here in the good old USA: a Connecticut Broadleaf and a Connecticut Shade. These are complemented by a Brazilian binder as well as 100% ligero tobaccos from Nicaragua, Italy, the DR and the USA.
This melting-pot of fine tobaccos delivers a full bodied premium cigar offering the full-package – strength, smoothness and beauty. The CAO America Potomac, the 5 x 56 robusto, earned an impressive 92 rating from Cigar Aficionado Magazine.
The innovative philosophy of CAO Cigars has been in place now for decades and continues on today. A never-ending goal to create unique blends is detailed in the company’s mission statement:
“We’ll go anywhere to find the exceptional tobacco we’re looking for. And we have. We’ve been all over the world, procuring some of the finest and rarest leaf known to man. The jungles of the Amazon. The mountains of Colombia. The valleys of the Dominican Republic and the volcanoes of Nicaragua. And nearly every point on the map in between.
In all our travels, we’ve discovered something. When we remove boundaries, borders, and limits from the process, what we’re left with is a tobacco experience unlike any other.”
One of our favorite quotes about the cigar industry comes from Tim Ozgener, son of CAO founder Cano Ozgener, “The thing about this business that makes it so special, is that the comradery and the genuineness is something that is just so real and I think this is almost an extension or reflection of the product itself. It’s just a really unique and special industry.”
