Nub cigars were launched back in 2008 with a massive marketing campaign organized by Sam Leccia from Oliva cigars. The idea behind the concept is that every cigar has a 'sweet spot' and the Nubs, being rather short, are the very essence of this sweet spot. Available with multiple wrappers like Habano, Maduro, Cameroon and Connecticut, the blend received good press and was warmly welcomed by aficionados. Today's featured cigar sports an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and is filled with tobacco from Cameroon.
- Linus from Cigar Newbie says the Connecticut is definitely an enjoyable cigar, thanks to its balanced and 'inter-twined' flavors.
- Barry reviewed it one year after the release and found that it still deserves a place in the humidor.
- Scott at Cigar Command managed to stand the cigar on its ash and claimed it was a good cigar for the morning rotation.
Where to get it?
Available in the $4-6 range, Nub Connecticut is a good option when you're looking for a (relatively) short, full-flavored smoke.
