Hi, I’m Nada with SmokingCigarGirl and today I’m going to be reviewing the Cain Nub Maduro. This is a 4×60 cigar with a Mexican San Andreas Maduro wrapper and a Nicaraguan binder and filler.
The wrapper is a very rich maduro, dark brown color with some lighter mottling. There is a lot of tooth on the wrapper and a couple a prominent veins – a very dry looking wrapper. The foot of the cigar has an earthy, slightly barnyard aroma and there are some hints of cocoa on the cold draw. Upon lighting, there are some intense blasts of black pepper and some warm, sweet flavors right off the bat and the finish is slightly woodsy.
The first half of the cigar has mostly warm, cocoa flavors on the front of the palate with hints of leather and black pepper along the way. The finish has been mostly woodsy with hints of black pepper. The draw has been great so far and the burn has been excellent and very consistent all the way around and the ash is holding on so far.
The final third of this Cain Nub Maduro has had some spicy flavors, a little bit of lingering sweetness and a lot of woodsy flavors on the front of the palate. The finish has continued to be mostly woodsy. The draw has been excellent in the second half of this cigar as well. Unfortunately, I did have to relight it part way through and had to tap the ash off as a result.
This cigar is a full-bodied cigar with a lot of bold and intense flavors. It’s a medium to full strength cigar so it’s probably best smoked after dinner or as your last cigar of the evening.
CH would like to thank SmokingCigarGirl for the review.
