First, there was Nub - a revolutionary cigar that captured the true essence of the tobacco at play. Then, there was Cain - a full-bodied, full-throttle blend crafted to redefine the full-flavored Nicaragua. Next came Cain 'F' - an even fuller-bodied variety of Cain. Now, the journey is complete as Nub meets Cain 'F'.
Cain 'F' Nub....it was only a matter of time. To craft these full-bodied firecrackers, a select recipe of bold Nicaraguan long-leaf ligeros is carefully blended, then cloaked by a thick and oily Habano ligero wrapper leaf. Each cigar is crafted into short and stout, 60+ ring frames - in true Nub form - to capture the core flavors these robust tobaccos dish out throughout the entire burn. The end result: layers of flavor with every puff delivered in smooth, balanced fashion. A rich series of leather and hearty spices smack the palate from start to finish, giving room - from time to time - for an intriguing toasty sweetness. Complex, satisfying, and eventful....Cain 'F' Nub is a fine achievement from the Oliva factory.

“Well, this is the first review that I have posted. I have to tell you that all of the hype for this little gem is correct. Starting with the appearance out of the wrapper. The Habano wrapper is beautiful and oily, virtually seemless. The burn was straight and true with no relights or fixing required. After about 30 seconds, my lips were tingling and the bold tobacco flavors hit the palate. At about the 1/3 mark, the cigar became remarkably smooth with some toasty notes and a sweet lingering aftertaste. It finished off with a bang and was never anything but superb. Furthermore, I am a somewhat aggressive smoker and don't like to leave my stogies burning on the ashtray very long and it never got hot until it reached my fingers (only real heat was on the fingers!). As a disclaimer, this cigar is not for the beginner, and should probably best be served after a hearty meal. I will buy plenty more of these to have as a staple in my humidor. My personal rating 92-93”

“I like my cigars like I like my women...short and fat! Seriously, this is an excellent smoke, with a nice and even burn, smooth draw and great flavor profile. Lots of pepper right at the start, then it smooths out into a very enjoyable mix of earth and toasty flavors mixed with spices. Very good...took it right down to "nub" and it never got hot.”

“Great little cigar! Love em. I am about to order a box.”
“Cain F Nub is probably, well it is my go to cigar. I just really enjoy the spicy edge, the aroma, the burn, ash, smoke. You name it this cigar is on it. I still haven't found any cigars I enjoy more than Nub. I've never had a bad Cain F Nub.”
