Cain Daytona

Cain Daytona

The newest release of the Cain line and from Oliva Cigars, Daytona is beast. The cigar is not meant to be as strong as the other cigars and uses a milder habano leaf from Nicaragua that is toothy and oily. The cigar has a wonderful aroma of mild spices with wood and leather. All the tobacco inside is from Nicaragua's best three growing regions and is all ligero. I smoked the robusto in the line and the cigar was 5" in length and had a 50 ring gauge.

Right when I lit the cigar up I was greeted with flavors that were very similar to that of Jamaican Jerk. I was greeted with intense spices of cinnamon, pepper. nutmeg and cloves, and also notes of thyme and jalapeno peppers. As spicy as the cigar was it still remained very smooth and medium in body  which was very surprising to me. As the cigar continues, I still has a large presence of those spices but was greeted with notes of coffee and cedar as well.

This cigar was a great release and I look forward the Studio Tobac Tour in June so I can really learn more about the smoke. Right now I give this cigar a 92, and I am looking forward to trying other vitola's in the line. This is a must try cigar that should be in all humidors.
