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.
To my surprise the Nub Cameroon does not start with the peppery/spicy flavors I thought it would. Instead it starts off really good and flavorful with lots of dark flavors. To me it’s like a roasted smoky wood with some coffee beans followed by full body strength. As I reached toward the middle of the smoke, there’s still rich dark flavors, very heavy on the palate, but not harsh at all. It’s just a heavy dose of smoke that will cover your entire palate. It’s not a complex cigar at all, there’s nothing “wow” about the flavors, but it’s consistent with the dark smoky/roasted flavor profile that sticks around to the end. No complaints, it was a decent flavor profile and it delivered what it had to offer.
The first third gave me a problem with the burn, but it then fixed itself and remained perfect throughout the entire cigar. There wasn’t much aroma found and the draw remained excellent. It’s a well-made cigar.
The Nub Cameroon is a pretty good cigar with lots of strength and lots of dark flavors on the aftertaste and palate. If you’re a fan of the “Cameroon” taste, I think it will suit you really well. Personally, I don’t have any plans in smoking this cigar again, but if I had the chance to pick which Nub I would want from a plate of cigars, it would be the Connecticut.
