caincain daytona 646
viajeviaje oro reserva vor no. 5


Although the Cain Daytona 646 may not be listed as full-bodied, it is full of flavor. The cigar begins with a bit of a surprise, as there's a good dose of spicy pepper. It definitely wakes up the senses, and it makes me wonder if it will be another powerhouse from Cain, even though it's advertised as the opposite. These thoughts are quickly silenced as time passes, though. After the first third, the spiciness dies down, and in comes some sweet and nutty flavors. The transition is very pronounced. The final third offers rich chocolate and some earth, with the chocolate flavor being the highlight of the entire cigar.

It's not always easy to venture out of your comfort zone to create something new, but the makers of the Cain Daytona line did it well. The Daytona 646 was solid in all departments. It looked good, burned well, and offered a varied assortment of flavors. It did surprise a bit in the beginning with its kick of pepper, but it was smooth sailing the rest of the way. Although the Daytona is listed as being medium-bodied, I think it could be classified as medium to full-bodied in nature. Still, it is milder that the usual offerings from Cain, and that should attract some new cigar fans who always wanted to try a Cain, but refrained due to their reputation. The 646 comes in boxes of 24, and you can find a single in the neighborhood of $5 each. That's not bad by any means. If you want to try something that's more about flavor than power, give the Cain Daytona 646 some serious consideration.

The Cain Daytona 646 receives a rating of 3.25 out of four stars.

Viaje Oro Reserva VOR No. 5

Viaje is definitely not the biggest name in cigars, but that does not mean that the brand cannot produce a quality smoke. Viaje is a boutique brand that produces cigars in small batches. They made a splash when their Viaje Oro Reserva VOR No. 5 received high ratings and notoriety from critics. It's time to see if the VOR No. 5 is as good as advertised.

The Reserva VOR No. 5 measures 5 1/2 x 52. Its just one of seven offerings in the Oro line. The other six include the 5 x 52 Fuerza, 5 1/2 x 42 Chico, 5 1/2 x 58 Gran Fuerza, 6 x 50 Delicado, 6 x 52 Torpedo, and 7 x 52 El Padre. The Reserva VOR No. 5 differs slightly from the others in the line in that it uses older leaf. The base composition is the same, however. The cigar is a Nicaraguan puro made with Grade A fillers, a double binder, and a Corojo '99 wrapper. Made at the Raices Cubanas factory, the VOR No. 5 is topped of with a traditional Cuban style triple cap. It is listed as being full-bodied.

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.
