Cain FF Torpedo

Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Wrapper:  Nicaragua
Binder:  Nicaragua
Filler:  Nicaragua
Vitola:  Torpedo
Length:  6 inches
Ring Gage:  54
Strength:  Full Bodied

Continuing with the Studio Tobac Sampler we have come to the Cain FF.  Again Cain cigars are all straight Ligero.  This cigar uses Ligero from the Jalapa Valley, Condega, and Esteli all from Nicaragua.  What they have done is used more Ligero from Esteli which makes this cigar more full bodied than the Cain F series.  The size you will receive in the Sampler Pack is the Torpedo (6 x 54). 

This cigar looks very pleasing to the eye.  It has a dark oily wrapper and is very firm to the touch.  Even though this cigar has more of the Esteli Ligero which makes it more full bodied than the Cain F series I did not find this harsh or overpowering at all.  There was a very nice spice when you first light the cigar.  I tasted coffee, almost espresso, chocolate, earthy notes to this cigar.  It was complex and flavorful. 
Unfortunately from my research it looks like this cigar (for the time being) will only be available in this Sampler Pack.  A release date has not been given.
