The cigar was well constructed from head to foot. No hard or soft spots and a very even wrapper color. The cap was well placed and came off effortlessly with my trusty cutter. The cigar took the flame from my lighter very well and lit without any issues. The burn stayed fairly straight except during the final third. This surprised me since ligero is the slowest tobacco to burn and I wouldn't have been surprised by more burn issues. The ash was white and some what flakey but again I think this is due to all the ligero. The draw was a bit loose in the beginning but did come around to a more medium draw as I progressed through it.
Cain was a bit of a flavor enigma for me. I was so taken aback by the power and intensity of the smoke, yet surprised at how very smooth and enjoyable the taste was. Mostly there is a rich tobacco flavor with smoky wood. As the cigar progressed it had an intense burst of spice which was on the front of the tongue. The retrohale was anything but smooth. Like the resting smoke, the retrohale was intense and almost brought me to tears. The body seemed mostly medium to medium-full at the end.
