Nub Cameroon

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.

Nice review. I love these things! Cammie and Connie are the best Nubs around imo. I would buy boxes upon boxes, well if i had the money and the wife would give approval LOL


Great video Chris. I agree with everything you said about this smoke. Its an excellant cigar. Would love to see a review on the Nub Habano…another great smoke.

Great review Chris I love these cigars they are my go to .

I have one of these that have been resting in my humidor since November of 2008. This review is giving me the urge to put the match to it.

I’m in the category of NUb lovers! I’ve tried them all, except for the new Nub Cain, and I like the Nub Maduro the most. Absolutely fantastic, top notch cigar, and Sam Leccia is a great guy!
