Cain Nub is the latest addition to the ultra-successful list of offerings from Sam Leccia and the Oliva family. First there was Nub, a series of short and stout handmades that promise to hit their 'sweet spot' immediately and maintain it throughout the entire length of the cigar. Then there was Cain, a full-tilt, 'straight ligero' powerhouse that's rich, bold and complex. And now, there's Cain Nub, a highly-anticipated fusion of these two innovative cigars.
All of Cain's flavor in a Nub costume, that's the Cain Nub. Offered in either a thick, leathery Habano leaf or a dark and oily Maduro, Cain Nub employs a robust mixture of long-leaf ligeros from a variety of regions in Nicaragua. Expect a powerful but refined display of complexity including hearty notes of spices, earth and coffee. Full-bodied, full-flavored and impressively smooth, Cain Nub delivers an unmatched experience.
Only two sizes were created - a 4" x 60 vitola with the same amount of tobaccos and burn time as a 6.75" x 50 Churchill or a 4" x 64 Torpedo that equals a 7" x 50 Churchill.
I was highly skeptical of the "nub" thing at first. This cigar has some DELICIOUS and elegant flavors. Sweet caramel, cocoa, and coffee, offset with just the right amount of spice and leather. I was blown away. Box material for sure and has good aging potential.
