Nub Connecticut torpedo

I had the pleasure of trying out a couple of nub cigars from oliva last night at the nub cigar event. I bought a box of nub’s once before (the habanos), so I already kind of knew what to expect.

Nub is a small cigar length wise but ring gauge wise, it’s very big. It’s also packed really tight with tobacco, which makes for a very slow burn. It’s also been said that if you leave the ash on your nub, it’s packed so tight that you can actually stand the cigar up on it’s ash (yes, I’ve tried it, and yes you can) I’ve never had a problem with a nub going out on me or breaking up.

The burn is even and the draw is very smooth. Thick white clouds of smoke come from the nub . The Connecticut is a milder more smoother smoke which is ok by me. I’m normally into the darker cigars but I was able to enjoy this one equally the same, based on the nice draw it produced. Hints of cedar are mixed in with the nutty flavor of the Connecticut.

I give nubs in general a 9/10 and this one gets an 8/10
