style="border-top:1px solid; width: 50%;" valign="top" align="left">Appearance: 3 out of 5 stars />If we reflect back, the href="http://www.cigarinspector.com/cain/cain-daytona" >Cain Daytona, and the href="http://www.cigarinspector.com/oliva/cain-habano-double-toro" >Habano, were both beautiful cigars. Unfortunately, the Maduro was a Monet amongst Rembrandt’s. It looks great from far away, but upon closer inspection, the wrapper is sub-par. The cap is sloppily placed on the head, and the veins do not align. There is even a slight gap in the wrapper towards the foot that is hap-hazardly repaired with a glob of rollers glue. The wrapper has very large veins on one side, but it’s silky smooth on the other. On the positive, it is wonderfully toothy, and it dons a beautiful oily sheen. style="border-top:1px solid; width: 50%;" valign="top" align="left">Appearance: 4 out of 5 stars />The dark brown maduro wrapper is very nice. It has no veins throughout it and has a couple of lighter spots. There are a couple spots that look like the wrapper was scratched a few times, but it isn’t anything big. style="border-top:1px solid; width: 50%;" valign="top" align="left">Construction: 4 out of 5 stars />Unlike its counterparts, this smoke was much more tightly rolled. There was almost no give throughout the entire cigar. Aside from the cosmetic flaws, this smoke seems to be pretty well put together. When I cut the cap and took a pre-lit draw, I caught a few stray hangers on the tongue. Also, I noticed some very large veins in the filler leaves, which worried me about the burn of this cigar. The cigar lit itself practically, requiring minimal effort, and it maintained a moderately even burn throughout. The ash, unfortunately, didn’t hang around very long. In fact, it fell off the first time I gently laid this thing down to rest. style="border-top:1px solid; width: 50%;" valign="top" align="left">Construction: 2.5 out of 5 stars />The cap is perfectly flush. The cigar itself is very solid, not one soft spot. The cigar cut clean and was very easy to light. The draw was very easy throughout the stick, but that’s what you will get most times with a 60 gauge cigar. The burn, however, was terrible. It was uneven throughout most of the stick and required a couple touch ups. The ash was different, it was marbled gray, black and red. style="border-top:1px solid; width: 50%;" valign="top" align="left">Flavor: 5 out of 5 stars />Kaboom! What, did you expect anything else? This thing is just like all of its brothers and sisters, a smokeable stick of dynamite. Hell, this thing was spicy even before I lit it up. Pre-light I noticed nuances of earth, pepper, and a surprising milk chocolate. Upon sparking this bad boy up, it evolved into dried leaves, more pepper, and espresso. The maduro wrapper really throws this thing into left field, as it almost seems to tame it. For a moment, I find myself thinking that even a novice could enjoy this. Wrong! Second third, Kaboom again! This thing just gets richer and richer, and maintains a medium to full body charisma throughout. Thank god I just had a full meal. Oh, and for a pairing suggestion, Dogfish Head Raison D’ Etre is a perfect choice. You can’t do scotch with this thing, you may not live to tell about it. Surprisingly, the final third calms down and develops into a rich Columbian coffee delight. Hold the cream and sugar…. style="border-top:1px solid; width: 50%;" valign="top" align="left">Flavor: 5 out of 5 stars />There were some sweet chocolate notes right off of the light, along with a little spice. Then some oak flavors came out about an inch in or so. By halfway, the body becomes very earthy, without losing any of the chocolate notes from before. There was also a slight coffee flavor that came out. The combination of chocolate and bitter coffee is a flavor that I like. The finish was very sweet and very earthy. There was still a little bit of spice on the finish, but it wasn’t bad. style="border-top:1px solid; width: 50%;" valign="top" align="left">Value: 4 out of 5 stars />Aside from my disappointment with the appearance and construction of this cigar, it delivers in the most important areas. Flavor, body, and value. It reminded me a lot of the href="http://www.cigarinspector.com/casa-magna/casa-magna-colorado" >Casa Magna Colorado, which is a slightly higher price point. At under 7 bucks, I can’t complain whatsoever. However, I wouldn’t buy a whole box of these. style="border-top:1px solid; width: 50%;" valign="top" align="left">Value: 4 out of 5 stars />The way I see it now, is that $6-$7 for a cigar isn’t bad. When I am looking at a cigar of this size, I almost always am looking at this price range. So in that aspect the price point is spot on. style="border-top:1px solid; width: 50%;" valign="top" align="left">Overall: 4 out of 5 stars />I struggled with this rating, but it truly deserves it. Again, it excels in the most important areas. Appearance isn’t everything, but I do find it somewhat important. When you go to your tobacconist to pick one of these up, which I whole-heartedly recommend, make sure you look at every last one of them to find that special gem. Cain, href="http://www.cigarinspector.com/category/oliva" >Oliva, and Studio Tobac in general don’t seem to have any seconds for sale anywhere I have looked. This tells me that they may be mixed in with the rest of them. This is not to say that this is fact, but I don’t see how they could let this one slide. On a final note, this nicotine buzz is wicked… style="border-top:1px solid; width: 50%;" valign="top" align="left">Overall: 4 out of 5 stars />I loved the flavor of this cigar. The only downfall was the construction. I know that the burning wasn’t due to my humidor because the other cigars I have smoked in the past week have burned perfectly. I think that perhaps the tobacco wasn’t packed evenly. But this was one of, if not the best tasting Cains that I have smoked.

Today, we are reviving our dual reviews concept – below is a review of the Cain Maduro Double Toro done by href="http://www.cigarinspector.com/author-m-germany" >M. Germany and href="http://www.cigarinspector.com/author-zack" >Zack. Enjoy!

M. Germany: Well, I enjoyed the href="http://www.cigarinspector.com/cain/cain-daytona" >Cain Daytona so much that I just had to pick up the Straight Ligero Maduro. Then, Zack wrote a href="http://www.cigarinspector.com/oliva/cain-habano-double-toro" >fantastic review about the Double Toro Habano. So, now we bring you a wham bam double review slam. Hopefully, this smoke will deliver an equal tobacco love affair vibe. href="http://www.cigarinspector.com/category/cain" >Cain is known for its straight-to-the-gut, power packed, full bodied / flavored awesomeness. Please Cain, don’t let us down.

Zack: Last week I was asked to do a dual review along with M. Germany. This was the first time an opportunity like this came up for me, so I had to take it. We decided to do the Cain Maduro because within the last week, we had each reviewed a different Cain. So I was excited to dive into this cigar because the maduro wrapper is a personal favorite of mine.
