This is the fourth Cain Daytona review in a series of 6. This corona measures 6×46, which makes it a bit thicker than the Cuban standard for coronas, but that’s not unexpected from Studio Tobac cigars, most of them are big and fat, a corona is a rare sight. Other thin cigars are the Cain F lancero and the Cain Daytona #4.
The latte colored wrapper has a lot of veins. The construction feels good and I smell a strong barnyard smell. The predraw is fine, I taste chili peppers.
I taste an earthy flavor with a lot of pepper and a sugarwater sweetness. There is also pepper in the aftertaste and on my tongue. After half an inch I taste pepper, wood and the sugerwater sweetness, the sweetness is mild though but grows a bit in strength, it also changes to honey instead of sugarwater. The pepper gets more refined. After an inch I taste wood and nuts as a support to the honey and a mild chili pepper, the flavors are beautiful and subtle.
After a third I taste a little bit of chocolate with the pepper, the pepper is strong but not dominant. The mixture of all flavors is well balanced. Halfway the chocolate and honey disappear, I taste herbs, wood and some pepper. After two thirds the chili pepper grows in strength and the sugerwater sweetness returns. The pepper slowly gains more strength.
The smoke duration of this cigar was an hour and thirty five minutes for me. The draw is great, but I had to correct the burn a few times. The silver gray ash has some black spots on it, it looks coarse and is medium firm. I got plenty of thick smoke. This cigar is full bodied and full flavored.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes!
