What a strange looking cigar. The NUB Habano 460 is a Nicaraguan puro manufactured by the Oliva Cigar Company. Have you ever noticed that some cigars taste best in the several inches toward the middle? The rationale behind NUB’s awkward sizes is that the cigars are designed in attempt to replicate this “sweet spot” from the beginning to end.

Like the other two Nubs ive smoked, the Nub Cameroon has one amazing quality wrapper. A very smooth, nice in color with no veins, healthy wrapper. It’s still oddly shaped (I guess I was hoping for a corona gorda) and it's still eye catching. Again, it's one of the most eye doodling cigars in the market.

Oh boy, this cigar smells amazing! I don’t know if it’s just the one I have today, but it's really nice. On the smell, it's nothing but rich tobacco with a sugary-woodsy-tea like smell all around the cigar. Seriously, take a second and just give it a good sniffle action, it's worth it. The draw check was excellent, but left some spiciness on the lips, not what I like.

The look of the cigar is extremely weird. It looks like a big toe or a d size battery. The wrapper is beautiful, very smooth and oily. It’s in perfect condition and it really couldn’t get any better.

On the smell, the wrapper gives off a very nice woody and cinnamon aroma. The foot smells really light, but very sweet tobacco. The pre-draw was very good, not too loose, just the way I liked it and didn’t leave any aftertaste on my palate, which is okay.

The Nub is the brainchild of Sam Leccia. Sam spent an number of years working for the Oliva Cigar Family. He believes that every cigar has a sweet spot where it achieves the pinnacle of its flavors at some point during the smoke. Sam wanted to see if he could create a cigar that could capture this sweet spot from the very first puff and hold it to the very last. The Nub is what he came up with. These cigars are very short and have huge ring gauges. The smallest of the line is 54 ring, but the majority of them are 60 and above. The largest of the line is a whopping 66 ring gauge. Each size is supposedly the equivalent to a more traditional sized cigar. For example this 460 Habano is supposed to have the same amount of tobacco in it as a 6.75″ x 50 Churchill. I have smoked three of the Cameroon Nubs already and while they were decent flavor-wise, all three split apart on me and unraveled. I hope I don’t have the same problem with this Habano. Let’s see how it does…
