    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.

      Great consistency can be found with Nubs. Particularly the wrapper in the burn…I’ve smoked a few boxes and was pleased. I don’t know how they do it actually/ is like to read how someday.
      The Habano is my fav.

      I just smoked the Nub Cameroon. It burned a small channel in the end, but start to finish had great consistent flavor. A little robust, but very smooth. Goes great with a good IPA. Definitely took my time and enjoyed it. Don’t smoke it too fast, as M Fairchild mentioned. Lasted me about an hour and never broke the ash off.

      LOVE this cigar. Do not understand the comments about it being hot, smoke it slowly, a good 20-30 minute smoke, as much tobacco as a full size cigar. Can be smoked to the nub, pun intended. Wow, what flavors, slightly, very, sweet, great spice. Wonderful with coffee in the morning. Truly a good smoke!

      My Review of the Nub Cameroon 466 BPT

      The 466 BPT is the only box-pressed cigar in the line. I chose this torpedo because I really don’t like big ring gauge cigars and the torpedo helps accommodate that with the tapered head. The wrapper is attractive, a golden brown leaf with a satiny feel and a little tooth.

      First off, I understand this cigar is supposed to be short but because of the length and the big ring gauge I almost set my face on fire trying to get it lit.

      The cigar starts off nice and spicy, a little pepper on the tongue that mellows out soon after lighting.

      Almost right off the bat, I found this to be a really hot smoke, and I don’t mean pepper. I found this cigar burns way too hot for me, and this is directly related to the large ring gauge and short length.

      The flavors present was wood and toast with some spice in the background. This was consistent throughout the smoke, which is also another drawback as a short cigar makes it nearly impossible to blend in complexity.

      The burn was also slightly uneven, and when the “sweet spot” was attained, there were notes of coffee and chocolate and some bitterness.

      I really enjoy all the Nub blends even though it’s like smoking one of Shrek’s fingers. Nice review!

      I’ve had one Nub Cameroon so far, and the flavor was good, but the construction was odd on it. When I turned the cigar foot down ash would poor from it like little grains of sand. Exceedingly odd. I recently purchased another to give it another shot.
