First experience with Cain "F"
I'm usually a mild-medium smoker, but have recently delved into the world of full bodied smokes. My most recent purchases have been a Cain maddie, Cain Daytona, Cain "F", and an Obsidian. I must say I've been pleasantly pleased so far. I had the maddie the day after buying it and savored the Daytona on Christmas night. Tonight I fired up the "F" and was completely blown away. With the exception of the one Opus X I've had, this was the best smoke I've had so far. Lots of spice and black pepper in the first 1-1 1/2 inch, then nothing but pure tobacco flavor for the rest of the stick. Lots of creamy smoke swirling about my head like a demented halo. A bit of a "bite" during the last 1/3 of the smoke, but nothing I couldn't handle. Smoke so thick you almost have to chew it after the draw. No issues with keeping it lit, though a slight tunneling down the center that was easily remedied by a quick toasting. This is definitely a stick I'll purchase again. All of the Cain I've had have been a Corona size. I believe a Robusto or Torpedo shall be next in line. I'm sure most of you have had them, but if you haven't please do yourself a favor.
