Cain Maduro Torpedo By Oliva

After the disappointment of the Cain Habano this is the Maduro virgin which I will hope to perform much better. to make the long story short here is what I found:

Size: 6X54

Wrapper: Maduro Ligero
Binder: Nicaraguan Ligero
Filler: Nicaraguan (Jalapa, Esteli, Condega) Ligero

Initial thoughts:

This is a very nice looking torpedo with well packing and no soft spot. The maduro wrapper is very oily and silky to the touch with very little veins on it. The draw is very good and the aromas coming of the pre light were very cool with hints of cocoa and wood. The burn was very slow, wavy but correct it self. The ash was not the best looking however is was solid with very dark gray.

1st Third:

The initial puffs were medium to full loaded with rich tobacco and pepper. The smoke half an inch down mellow a bit but still peppery with maduro sweetness on the end and some woody flavors. The body get the full stage with more pepper, leather, maduro sweetness and hints of cocoa. By the end of this third the smoke get mellower and smooth with less pepper but more to the sweetness and leather, how ever it still full body.

2nd Third:

Here more complex smoke with decent amount of pepper leather and sweet cocoa and hints of warm caramel and the body is straight full. At the half way point I can find some cherry like flavor and the smoke somehow gets drier. There is some sweet earthiness by the end of this third.

Final Third:

Here new flavors appear like coffee beans and rich dark chocolate to make a very nice infusion with the previous flavors. If you guys now the maduro flavor it is very rich at this point. The pepper mellowed much and the smoke became sweeter and smoother but as you could imagine the body is full.

Final thought:

The maduro Cain passed the exam with very good grades and exceeded the Habano one. With fair amount of complexity this is a real ligero cigar and the strength is serious. A cigar I would look at again for sure when I need something takes me direct to the point. However when talking about a Ligero + Maduro the LFD pop up and for many reason I would prefer it to this on. The Cain Maburo have some similarity to the Oliva V but with less complexity. Again it isn’t a bad cigar and it may need some age to perform better.
