Making a Straight Ligero cigar requires a unique understanding of the leaf. Ligero comes from the top of the tobacco plant. Its direct exposure to the sun darkens and thickens the leaf. Smaller than leaves lower on the plant, it also enjoys a concentration of nutrients. Habano Seed Ligero is recognized as the most full flavored leaf. Additionally, the region in which this Habano Seed is grown plays a significant role in its flavor and strength.
The Daytona stays true to it's Cain roots by being a "Straight Ligero" cigar, but Daytona's ligero is entirely from the Jalapa Valley. Jalapa ligero is more refined than other ligeros and is the smoothest of these powerhouses because it's grown in a valley and enjoys less direct sun. Jalapa ligero, plus Cain's triple fermentation, makes Cain Daytona a medium to full-bodied, smooth, rich, and flavorful smoke.
