Cain F 654T

Today I’m firing up a cigar that was introduced to the market at the 2009 IPCPR show with quite a bit of buzz behind it. My initial experiences with the Cain lineup wasn’t what I expected. The press behind this cigar described a bold/powerful cigar and I just didn’t get that. Then, I tried the Cain F, and my opinions were changed some. In my mind, the Cain F delivered on the promise of a bold/powerful cigar.

Name: Cain F
Company: Oliva
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano
Binder: Unknown
Filler: 32% Esteli Ligero, 25% Condega Ligero and 25% Jalapa Ligero
Price: $8.00
Comes in: Box of 24
Vitola: Torpedo (6×54)


The Cain F 654T is a beautifully constructed torpedo. I took a look at the cigar and could not pick up and visual imperfections. The wrapper was a uniform shade of medium brown; most reminiscent of a dark caramel. Tiny veins ran all over the wrapper, which only added a slight bit of rough texture to the oily leaf. The cigar felt firm in the hand as well as uniformly bunched. Taking a look at the foot of the cigar I could see just how much tobacco appeared to be jammed into this stick. Nasal inspection of the cigar yielded an aroma of tobacco and wood with a hint of sweetness.

Final Thoughts

The Cain F really doesn’t disappoint in my opinion. The flavors of wood, coffee, nuts and black pepper are bold and well balanced. With the exception of a few touch-ups, the Cain smoked evenly. The draw was what I would consider perfect and produced tons of thick white billowing smoke. Now what initially drew me to the Cain was that it was touted as a strong cigar. Although I don’t find this cigar to be “knock you back in the chair” strong, I do think it has a bit of a kick that might be too much for some cigar smokers. But, just like flavor is subjective so is strength.

Bottom line is, I enjoyed this cigar and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys a full-bodied cigar and most people that like medium-bodied cigars. I should also mention that I’ve had more Cain F Robustos than Torpedos, and the Robusto is by far my favorite. To me the Robusto really delivers on the spice and strength.

It’s a great review Chris. I’ve smoked 6X60 cain F series. It is a full in strength, well favorful, and a lot of smokes. I’ve not smoked the Cain F’ in a smaller sizes than an 60 ring gauge.

Thanks for the rerview. I have only smoked the robusto size and enjoyed it.

I also had the robusto and thought it was good.

Great review!
I love the Cain F. In my opinion Cain F > maddie > habano.

Totally agree on the robusto. I have also had some double coronas and it seemed like a totaly different smoke.

I agree with you on the Robusto v. Torpedo suggestion. The Robustos I’ve had have been superb, while the 2 Torpedos have been so-so. I think the Nub is also a great smoke as well.

Chris, Have you smoked the CAO dirty Rat yet? It’s your favorite cigar size. Would you give us a review on the CAO Dirty Rat. Because my co-worker said “it was a good cigar but it did not have a lot of the notes favor.” It does not worth the money $$…

Hi, i think that i saw you visited my weblog thus i reached “return the favor”.
I’m attempting to find things to enhance my web site! Perhaps its ok to use several of your ideas!!…
