Default Cain Maduro nub 460

Sam Leccia, creator of both the Cain and the Nub decided to create a marriage between both his successful cigar lines and created the Cain Nub. I smoked the Cain Nub Maduro 460, a 4x60 cigar with a San Andreas maduro wrapper and 'straight ligero' filler which is build up with 25% Esteli ligero, 27% Condega ligero and 30% Jalapa ligero. The price of this cigar is 7.00 in The Netherlands.



The wrapper is beautiful, oily, greasy and dark with a few veins, but those veins look good on this cigar. The construction feels good. The predraw is great and tastes a bit like mud or dirt, but not in a bad way.



I can taste a sweet earthy flavor, quite full and only after an inch those flavors change a bit. I get some pepper with the sweet earthy flavor and some spices in the back of my throat. The wrapper tears at the mouth piece which I had to glue with some pectin.



The earth becomes a bit muddy, not bad though with the pepper and sweetness on the background. At two thirds I taste more spices and some freshness.



Even though this is only a 4 inch cigar, it lasted me for an hour and twenty minutes. I got a lot of thick smoke. The draw is good, but I had to correct the burn a few times. I find it hard to light a cigar this fat, and I found out by smoking a couple of these that the flavors are much better when you smoke it as slow as possible. This cigar is full flavored and full bodied.



Would I buy this cigar again? No, not that this is a bad cigar, but I just don't like cigars this fat and build with strength as their main goal instead of flavor.

Thanks for the review! I'm a huge fan of the Nub cigars, and I love the Cain cigars as well. When I tried the Cain Nub Habano though, I wasn't a huge fan of it. I've only smoked that one so I am going to try a couple more and then the Maduro before I stop smoking the Cain Nubs, but I agree with you about the Cain Nubs from what I've smoked.

Now the Cain Nub F...I'm looking forward to trying that
