Oliva Cain Cigars are a powerhouse blending triple fermented all ligero cigar. Sam Leccia, known for his famous Nub cigars, created this straight ligero with the goal of creating a full bodied smoke that is smooth from all ligero. These Cain cigars have a variety of ligero tobaccos from different regions of well known tobacco farms in Condega, Esteli plus the Jalapa Valley in Nicaragua. The Oliva Cain line of cigars is available in Double Toro, Toro, Robusto, and Torpedo sizes. Cain cigars come in two wrappers.  Maduro and Habano. Cain Maduro cigars have been tasted and reviewed and the overwhelming consensus about the cigars is that they are very full bodied yet smooth. The Cain Habano cigars are slightly milder than the Maduro with a distinctive flavorful medium to full bodied smoke. Not for the faint of heart the new Cain Cigars are stunning powerhouse smokes.

The making of Cain cigars. Fermentation is where the real magic occurs. After curing, the tobacco leaves have all their potential locked inside. It is through patient and vigilant handling that the leaves are brought to the desired result. The tobacco leaves are placed into groups of 20-25 leaves called "Manos". The "Manos" are then stacked in large piles called, "Pilones". Inside these "Pilones" the tobacco can reach temperatures as high as 120 degrees. The inner most tobacco generates the most heat. The "Pilon" is rotated often to allow for even heat exposure. No automation is used in this critical process. It is the work of a tobacco man and his instincts.

Triple Fermentation is a process in which the tobacco up to temperature three separate times. This was imperative in making Cain cigars because of the mission to make a Straight Ligero cigar.

The Ligero tobacco can take sustained temperature as a result of its thicker character. Through this careful process we brought out all of the deepest richest flavors of the Ligeros. This also allowed Sam Leccia to smooth the jagged delivery of flavor into a very full body yet smooth curve.

Cigar Architecture is crucial in any cigar. It is especially critical in making a Straight Ligero cigar such as in the Cain cigars. Not All tobacco burns at the same rate. Ligeros are the fullest body, slowest burning of the tobaccos. Viso is a medium flavored with better burn qualities. Seco is lighter flavored and quickest to burn. It is the careful arrangement of these tobaccos that allows a cigar to burn true.

Flavor Range refers to the low, medium, and high range of flavors in a cigar blend. Typically these ranges are achieved by the three aforementioned tobaccos. In making a Straight Ligero cigar we are delivering our low, medium and high range all from Ligero tobaccos. They must carefully arrange these Ligeros with other tobaccos for a true burn. The other tobaccos make no significant contribution to flavor.

Wrapper leaf is typically credited with delivering up to 60% of the flavor of a cigar, depending on the ring gauge. This is mostly true. In a Straight Ligero cigar it plays an important but reduced role as a result of the three powerful Ligeros.
