Sometimes a craving for a certain cigar hits, and the only thing you can do is smoke that cigar. So when I felt like smoking a Nub Cameroon I was surprised to realize we hadn’t yet reviewed a Nub on the site.
The Nub line, released in 2008, is the brain-child of Sam Leccia who was a sales representative for Oliva Cigar Company. These short and fat stogies come in 4 different wrappers (Cameroon, Connecticut, Habano and Maduro) and range between 54-66 ring gauge. These dimensions create a cigar that contains as much tobacco as either a Churchill or Double Corona.
Enough of that information, it’s time to cut and light.
Despite looking like a novelty cigar, the Nub really delivers in the flavor and construction department. The flavor profile with these cigars is always consistent and I rarely experience and serious issues that I could contribute to a flaw in construction. The Cameroon is by far my favorite Nub, and I feel like it can be enjoyed any time of the day. Although my favorite time would be in the morning with a cup of coffee. This cigar falls in the lower end of medium body, but is relatively full of flavor that should please most cigar smokers.
