Cain by Oliva

Description

Straight ligero, baby.

Hand-crafted in the Oliva factory of Nicaragua, Cain is a powerful blend of patiently aged, triple-fermented tobaccos. Available in two varieties - a thick and leathery Habano and a dark, oily Maduro - Cain utilizes superior long-leaf ligeros from Nicaragua’s three major growing regions: Esteli, Condega, and Jalapa. The cigar is eventful and complex, delivering a full-bodied, full-flavored assortment of deep, hearty flavors in smooth fashion. Hearty spices mingle with a deep tobacco core and Cuban-esque qualities, smacking the palate with notes of earth and coffee along the way. The abundance of thicker ligero leaves provide a slower burn, allowing you to truly appreciate each long-lasting puff, as the cigar grows more intense in both flavor and strength toward the nub.

The newer Cain ‘F’ is a bold new Nicaraguan blend, a stout addition to the family which delivers a full-throttle array of heady, satisfying flavors. Draped in a thick, dark brown Habano leaf and stuffed with an extra-generous dose of Nicaraguan ligeros, Cain ‘F’ is nothing if not full-bodied. Yet it’s unexpectedly smooth and balanced with a deep, rich flavor profile featuring notes of spices, earth, leather and coffee. Slow-burning, complex and robust, Cain ‘F’ sets a new benchmark in extra-full-bodied handmades.

Cain Habano 'F' received a well-deserved 92-point rating, noting:
"Solidly rolled with a dark, oily and attractive wrapper. The draw is bit firm, but instantly delivers rich, bold notes of leather and spice that intensify in both flavor and body."

As if that wasn't enough, Cain Habano received a '90' rating, commenting:
"This toothy torpedo wears an oily wrapper. It has a woody flavor, with leathery notes that turn sweet and floral before a tea note lingers on the finish."

Full bodied, excellent draw {not too loose & not too tight}. Flavor of tobacco is delicious. Slow, cool burn. One of my top 3 smokes, hands down!!

I think it’s a well made cigar that is becoming one of my favorites. I enjoy them as well as cigars costing much more. Their Connecticut and Daytona are also very nice. I do like the F the best

Cain 'F' Series

Jeff K

I must admit, when I first saw the advertisements for Cain I was completely turned off. I mean, c’mon the motorcycle….and is that the Undertaker? I don’t get it. But maybe I’m just out of touch.

So I held off as long as possible….until a couple appeared on my desk. And now I’m regretting not getting into these sooner. I should have known, because I can’t ever remember having a bad cigar from Oliva. But this just reeked of gimmick, and that’s not my bag.

So it’s time to eat crow. Cain by Oliva, more specifically the ‘F’ Series, is a good cigar. Actually, really good. Created with dark and oily Nicaraguan Habano leaf that’s smooth, even colored and extremely appetizing. Inside, a full-tilt mixture of ‘straight’ (actually 82%) Nicaraguan ligeros waits to deliver power and flavor in droves. The ‘F’ Series is basically an amped up spin-off of the original Cain….and it does have a little more pop. Flawlessly constructed, Cain ‘F’ Series is firm and dense with a meticulously applied wrapper. Visually, this cigar is as impressive as they come.

Through the first inch, the draw was just slightly tight. Not too bad, but enough to mention. And then it opened up perfectly. The aroma is rich, spicy and makes itself evident adding an important element to the experience. A complex display of black pepper, cedar, caramel, coffee and a smoky, almost burnt finish characterize the core flavors. Backed by a subtle sweetness and an overall rich tobacco tone, Cain shows an impressive depth of flavor. There’s a lot going on, but the smoothness and balance are unwavering. As promised, Cain is full-bodied. And it builds significantly in strength as it burns. I actually felt this one about halfway through.

Well blended, well made, intensely flavorful and brimming with strength, Cain brings the full, full-bodied package. I’d absolutely smoke Cain again…and again and I’d recommended it – I’m a fan. With prices between $6 and $8, I wouldn’t say they’re a tremendous value. But for an occasional treat or when they’re on special, I would definitely suggest it. It’s different, it’s strong, it’s a complete cigar – Cain by Oliva is easily one of the best new blends on the market. If you like full-bodied, full-flavored handmades, you’ll like Cain.
