caindaypic1The Cain Daytona 646 and the Viaje Oro Reserva VOR No. 5 – are they any good? We will break each of them down in today's reviews and let you know if they are worthy of a purchase.

Cain Daytona 646

The Cain brand has carried a reputation of having some rather strong cigars, as its F, Habano, and Maduro lines gained a solid following from many experienced smokers in the past. While there's nothing wrong with building a niche in a particular sector, Cain's reputation of strength has kept many fans of milder cigars from ever picking one up. To address this issue, Studio Tobac released the Daytona line. The line is a newer release from the brand, and it is said to offer a smooth profile with plenty of flavor.

Like the majority of the vitolas in the Daytona line, the 646 gets its name from its 6 x 46 measurements. There are also four other sizes in the line: the 5 x 43 No. 4, the 5 x 50 550, the 6 x 54 654T, and the 6 x 60 660. The tobaccos used to make the Daytona 646 all come from Nicaragua's fertile Jalapa Valley region. The region was singled out in this case because it is known for producing some of Nicaragua's smoothest tobaccos. A Nicaraguan Habano wrapper completes the cigar. As mentioned, the Daytona line is not as bold as other Cain offerings, and it is listed as being medium-bodied in strength.

From the looks of it, the Cain Daytona 646 has solid construction overall. The chocolate brown wrapper is very oily and smooth. There are no major defects on the wrapper, and only a few small veins are visible. Feeling the 646 from top to bottom reveals that it is packed with plenty of tobacco. While a lot of cigars have decorative bands situated near the head, the Daytona 646 has one at its foot. Its orange, black, and gold colors look great against the dark wrapper, and the font used to display the Cain Daytona name has a trendy appeal. Before lighting, the cigar has a spicy scent. As for the cold taste, it's rather sweet.

Once lit, the Daytona 646 burns well without any major issues. The draw is just right, and the volume of smoke that is produced is significant. The ash is solid and light gray in color. The burn stays even for most of the smoke, but a couple of minor touch-ups are needed. Nothing major, however.

Excellent review of the Daytona. Your thoughts about the pepper at the beginning were exactly the same as mine. I was expecting a cigar that was related to the rest of the Cain line like the Cabiguan is to the Tatuaje line. This was a touch stronger than what I expected but very good as you detailed.
