Cain Cigars is a brand manufactured and distributed by the Oliva Cigar Company in Estelí, Nicaragua. Following the successful launch of the Nub Cigars franchise, Oliva developed the Cain brand in 2009 to capture fans of more full-bodied cigars. The original Cain release was blended exclusively with Nicaraguan Ligero tobaccos, known for furnishing a particularly potent profile. To offset the potential harshness of an all-Ligero blend (branded as Straight Ligero), the tobaccos receive a triple fermentation, which lasts anywhere from several weeks to several months. Shortly after the debut of Cain, the company recognized the marketability of its younger brands and continued to develop both Cain and Nub under Studio Tobac, a division within Oliva comprised of a handful of the organization’s longest-tenured employees and brand affiliates. The members of Studio Tobac interact with consumers and receive feedback while developing new products.


Today Cain offers a concise but well-defined portfolio consisting of a distinct wrapper variety. Cain Daytona reflects the “Straight Ligero” formula of the original Cain, however, Daytona utilizes only Ligero tobaccos from the Jalapa region in Nicaragua, which bears a more approachable leaf. Known for its additional refinement, Cain Daytona delivers plenty of strength and spice, but does so in a medium-bodied profile with more accessibility and a Cuban-seed wrapper. Cain Maduro offers a succulent, earthy sweetness in conjunction with deep, zesty spices thanks to its chewy Maduro wrapper leaf. In keeping with the brand’s customarily powerful core releases, Cain F debuted with an extra-hearty blend of Nicaraguan Ligero tobaccos specifically from Estelí, a region particularly noted for yielding a potent crop. The “F” in Cain F stands for “Forced Refined,” as the cigar was designed to push the limits of strength, while retaining balance. Despite a somewhat polarizing tenacity in flavor and strength, Cain F received a 92-rating from Cigar Aficionado and continues to garner connoisseurs who prefer especially full-bodied cigars. Perhaps the most anticipated Cain cigar has been the release of Cain Nub, an iteration of the peppery Straight Ligero Cain blend in the short, stocky and wildly popular Nub formats. Additionally, each wrapper variety hailing from the Cain portfolio is reflected in the Cain Nub line extension. Many of the innovative concepts attributed to both the Cain and Nub brands were showcased during the Studio Tobac World Tour in 2012, which fueled demand and generated a positive initial reception from consumers.
