Cain F Nub (Habano) (4" x 64)

I won this Cain F Nub at the Outlaw Cigar Store in Kansas City KS. recently. It came with a nice wooden Oliva humidor and every time I see it (as if I need a reason), I remember one of the reasons that my wife is so great-she's lucky! This is not the first time she's won me something in a drawing but it is probably the best! Anyway, you should  check out the Outlaw Cigar Store if you are in Kansas City or check out their website

The Cain F is a short and stocky sucker. It clips and starts burning quickly and stays lit throughout the smoke. In keeping with the theme, I'll keep my review equally short: Cain F Nub is a good cigar but not really my thing. I had to slow down a few times as the strength of flavor and the nicotine potency kept increasing. Additionally, though the tangy flavor was enjoyable it didn't change much throughout the smoke, which kind of left me a little bored. 

This cigar was a little too much power-it could really gain from a reblending that toned it down a notch and added some complexity. I rate this cigar a 2 on my 4 point scale: It's a good smoke but it isn't to my taste. I will probably trade some of these with my buddies that like the power house cigars (are you listening, Rico?) and continue my mission to review each of the different types of cigars we won at the Oliva Outlaw event.

Yes, I am listening... And when I shake this weird cold that is afflicting me, I will have to try my own Cain F and let you know what I think. (Can't remember if the one I traded you was a nub or not.)

Dude, I just smoked one of these babies (yes, mine was a Cain F nub - straight ligero the label says) and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Having a less refined "transition palette" I didn't have any complaints at all; a fully awesome stogie! I'd give it a 3 or 4 on your scale.
