Since the Ave Maria was released, it has been one of my favorite cigars. I usually only smoke full bodied cigars, so for me to find a medium bodied one that I like this much is rare. My father is new to cigars, and this is the one that got him to enjoy them. This works out in my favor because now I have someone to split a box with every now and then to cut costs.

For the last several years, Cigar King has had a significant stock of exclusive brands created by Don Pepin Garcia. Those brands included Habana Leon, Cuban Diplomat, Havana Soul, Nacionales W, and the no longer available Sancti Spiritus. Not a whole lot is known about these exclusives but I will shed some light on at least one of the brands - unfortunately they will no longer be around.

Today, we are reviving our dual reviews concept - below is a review of the Cain Maduro Double Toro done by M. Germany and Zack. Enjoy!

M. Germany: Well, I enjoyed the Cain Daytona so much that I just had to pick up the Straight Ligero Maduro. Then, Zack wrote a fantastic review about the Double Toro Habano. So, now we bring you a wham bam double review slam. Hopefully, this smoke will deliver an equal tobacco love affair vibe. Cain is known for its straight-to-the-gut, power packed, full bodied / flavored awesomeness. Please Cain, don’t let us down.

Zack: Last week I was asked to do a dual review along with M. Germany. This was the first time an opportunity like this came up for me, so I had to take it. We decided to do the Cain Maduro because within the last week, we had each reviewed a different Cain. So I was excited to dive into this cigar because the maduro wrapper is a personal favorite of mine.

Cigars by a pipe tobacco company you ask?,… well yes it is. Trust me, I had my doubts about this cross over attempt as many of you out there may have had also. My first thought was that I was going to get a cigar that smelled of Black & Milds and tasted of,… well,… cheapness. But Villiger Stokkebye doesn’t do cheap or bad tobacco, they usually go all out.

Weeks ago I was sent a variety pack by the company that included the La Libertad (Honduran) line and the “Fuerte” version of the same Villiger 1888. After smoking them all, I have to lean towards the regular Villiger 1888, their top of the line regular production cigar. So here goes,…

Cain. The brainchild of Oliva and Studio Tobac. The same geniuses that decided to take a premium hand rolled perfecto, cut it in half, and call it a Nub. All while continuing to charge the same full cigar price. I find myself asking, “what in the world are they trying to accomplish here?” I mean, what if Johnny Walker and Jack Daniels decided to merge and try and create some type of hybrid? One of two things is possible here; sheer greatness, or supreme failure. So, let’s dive right into this.

After a fairly bad weekend due to the weather, I could hardly wait for a nice day. So Monday morning I wake up, and it still looks really nasty outside. As I am sitting at work, I notice the sun peeking out. All I could hope for was that little bit of sun to stay out when I was finally finished work for the day. I get home, and the sun is out full force. The perfect day to sit outside and smoke a good cigar. So I went into my humidor and grabbed a Cain Habano Double Toro.

I never really heard of this brand until early this year after talking to Todd Dailey at Good Karma Cigar in Amarillo. Todd has been spot on in hitting my comfort spot with cigars I am not too familiar with. All I tell the crew at Good Karma is “What do you got that is new?” or “What do you have that I haven’t had yet?” and BLAMO!,… they hit me with a package of sticks that is like unwrapping a gift from a secret Santa. Awhile back I got this stick, the Forcade Toro. Not much information is out there about this brand and the people behind it. I do know that these cigars are blended by Jaime Garcia at the My Father factory. Forcade does have facebook page but I got no response when trying to get info from them, and then got no dice when trying to call their listed business number. So what little I know of the brand was supplied by Good Karma. Now to the review,….

We are pleased to introduce M. Germany who joined our team of reviewers. Enjoy his take on the Oliva Serie O Perfecto!

Oliva is a cigar brand that I have seriously come to respect. They offer a wide variety of smokes at a very affordable price. Their Serie O line is certainly no exception to that standard. Cigars from Oliva are always attractive, and they always seem to make you feel like you are holding more in your hand than you really are. Recently, an Oliva Serie sampler pack was gifted to me from Oliva. I certainly must say, they know how to run a business, and they certainly know how to roll a cigar.
