Cain Daytona - 1

Up for review today is another cigar that can be found in the Studio Tobac Tour Sampler (Cain F Lancero, Cain FF, Nub San Andreas Maduro, Cain Daytona, and ST/DS-001), in the Cain Daytona. Like previos cigars in this series of reviews, I recieved these sticks as a member of the Studio Tobac Advisroy Board.

After reading Jerry’s recent Week In Smoke, where he explained that he wasn’t a fan of the Cain line but found this stick impressive, I was eager to light it up and give it a try. Armed with my Palio Cutter, a lighter, and a cup of coffee, I got down to business.

The Cain Daytona was a pleasing cigar to look at with its superior construction and consistent color. When pinched, my cigar was firmly packed with tobacco and produced a cedar-like aroma. The pre light draw produced a woody flavor and smooth draw. Once lit, my cigar billowed smoke which coated the palate. The flavor profile was interesting but consistent from start to finish (little variation throughout). The most notable flavors were cedar, sweetness, occasional saltiness, and an intese spice.

Much like you would expect from the Cain line, the body was full. The biggest difference between the Cain Daytona and Cain Habano and Cain Maduro was that the focus was clearly on delivering rich flavor and less about knocking your socks off with power. Where the Cain F was a variation in the blend for the thrill seekers of the cigar world, the Daytona was more laid back and easy going.

  1. Great review Walt, sounds like this cigar is right up my alley. Weird how a hole in the cigar can dramatically change things. Keep the reviews coming and keep on smoking.

    1. Jamie,
      I’m glad you enjoyed the review. It is amazing how much trouble a small hole can create in a cigar.

      Thanks for the comment.

  2. Great review man! Love to see you back doing full out reviews again. It;s like 2006 all over again! Good stuff!

  3. Good review Walt, The Cain Habano 6″/60 size is really good cigar if them have sat for a year in which I did. The cigars were medium to full in strenghten. The favors were woody, coffee and nutty. It was really smooth. I gladed that I did not gave them away to my smoke buddies because they were too strong and I did not enjoyed them like I have after a year in my humifier.

  4. Walt, thanks for another great review. What tabletop lighter are you using in this one? also, on your older reviews are you using a Blazer GB 2001? Thanks buddy.

  5. Yay a long review! I second what stogielover said. When I first found this site in 2006 the reviews were way longer and I loved it, glad to get some good lengthy ones in! Thanks walt.

  6. Great review! I just had my first Cain — this Cain Daytona, in fact. I’ve been wanting to try the Cains for some time, but when I met Sam Leccia 2-33 years ago he recommended waiting for my palette to mature. So now, with this Cain Daytona, I can enjoy the full flavors that the Cains are known for without blowin my brains out! Thanks!
