    My previous review was of the Cain Habano Robusto. In that review I detailed a bit about the makeup and story of the this straight Ligero cigar so click on over and check that out as well. Today I am smoking the Maduro Torpedo. I was trying to find some more information about this wrapper and was unable to find anything definitive about it. I have seen it referred to as a Nicaraguan Maduro, a Mexican Maduro, and even a Brazilian Maduro wrapper. I am not sure which it is at this point. I am not inclined to agree with the Brazilian label though. As Maduro wrappers go this one doesn’t have much tooth to it, and in my experience, the Brazilian maduro is on of the toothiest maduro wrappers I have seen. That is just an opinion and a guess though. It could very well be Brazilian, I just don’t know right now.

    The wrapper on the Cain Maduro is dark and mottled with a few prominent veins running across its surface. It has a slight tooth and oily appearance. This cigar starts off very similar to the Habano. It is smooth and creamy, medium bodied without much power. It has a very nondescript, sweet maduro flavor to it. I began to wonder if this one would pick up in the last third like the Habano did, but it did not. It was very one dimensional. The flavors never changed and it never developed any power. It was surprisingly light for an all ligero cigar and flavor wise it was pretty boring. The Habano version was much better. This cigar just never did anything for me. I’ll be smoking the Habano again, but I don’t have any interest in revisiting the maduro.

      Well, to start with, it was overall a pretty good smoke. The cost is about fifty cents more a stick than the habano wrapper, so I shall summize it from there. I am a maduro smoke guy, and the maduro wrapper on this was nice but not great. There are gurkha maduro and cao maduro wrappers on their average smokes that are better. As for the stogie itself, it lit well, no dramatic runs, good ash, it was smooth and the ligero was very good. As I said before I am a maduro wrapper guy but the habano cain is a much better smoke in my opinion, and it is a little less in costs. Don’t get me wrong, the Maduro Cain Torpedo is a good smoke, but like the Oliva V Maduro versus the Habano wrapper V, it just doesn’t quite fit in the grand scheme of things weighed,which primarily is the ligero tops of tobacco plants. However, with all this criticism said, the Cain Maduro Torpedo is a buy, if you can get a good deal. This cigar line (Cain)is consistant with the Rocky Patel (Edge)varieties.
