Cain CigarsCain cigars are one of the fine offerings from the Oliva Cigar Company. Melanio Oliva started growing tobacco in 1886 in Cuba. In the 1920’s his son Hipolito took over. His son Gilberto started brokering tobacco, and the Oliva Cigar Company continues to this day with Gilberto and his family growing Cuban-seed tobacco in Nicaragua.

Cain cigars weren’t introduced until 2009, and they faced plenty of competition from an already heavily saturated cigar market. The Cain cigar comes in four sizes: the Toro is six inches long with a ring gauge of 50, the Robusto is 5.7 inches long with a ring gauge of 50, the Torpedo is six inches long with a ring gauge of 54, and the Double Toro is six inches long with a ring gauge of 60. You can purchase these with either a Habano or a Maduro wrapper.

In Spanish, “Maduro” means “ripe,” and in the context of cigars it speaks to the longer fermentation process, as well as the darker colors achieved in the wrapper. Sometimes, however, it solely refers to the color and not to the wrapper making process, so you can have a cigar that is “Maduro” only in terms of the color. The Habano wrapper is generally a lighter color, but it can also signify that the cigar was produced with Cuban seed, which often means the Cuban tobacco seed was grown elsewhere.

Many of the reviews on the Cain cigar have complimented the wrapper, and have been largely positive. Some commented about how powerful and robust this smoke was, while pointing out how smooth the overall experience of the cigar was as well. Other review comments included things like the ash color being described as light, without flaking, and holding on strongly. One of the reviews focused on the band, which is helpful in protecting the product as it wasn’t further protected by cellophane. The wrapper was complimented on its color, as well as its lacking any large veins. A number of the reviews commented on the spice note in the flavor. There was some commentary that due to the strength of the cigar, it was a good idea to smoke it with a meal. Overall, the reviews appear quite positive for the Cain cigar, and it looks like the folks at the Oliva Company can give themselves a pat on the back for this offering.

Your favorite online cigar shop should be able to help you if you have questions about choosing between the different types of cigars available in the Cain line. Check to see what the shop has to offer you, and that may help determine any questions you may want to ask prior to your phone call. If you decide to try one of these amazing cigars, check out the reviews for yourself and determine which cigar might suit your tastes. You may even be able to find a comparison that will show cigars that are similar to your favorite brand. This is a good way to try new smokes while staying in the parameters of the cigar that you enjoy the most.

    Cain Daytona Cigar Review
    Cain Daytona cigars come in several different types and sizes. The Double Toro is a 6X60 offering from the Oliva Cigar Company. Just out, these haven’t fully saturated the market yet, so there are probably a lot fewer reviews to choose from than there are for many other lines.
