On Tour: Cain Cigars

Sam Leccia, the creator of the NUb and Cain cigar brands, is out on tour promoting his newest creation. The Cain F Tour began on March 10, and it showcases a cigar that brings together both of Leccia's cigar brands: the Cain F NUb.

Originally a promotional cigar, Cain F's higher percentages of Nicaraguan ligero from EstelĂ­ make it stronger than the Cain Habano or Maduro varieties. Leccia took that powerful blend and not only turned it into an entire line, but fashioned it into a 4 inch by 60 ring gauge promotional NUb.

All NUb and Cain cigars are made in Nicaragua by Oliva Cigar Co., which is featured in the most recent issue of Cigar Aficionado magazine.
