Review Notes: Had my first Nub about an hour and a half ago. Coming into this smoke I tried to put all the hype out of my mind so I could judge this smoke fairly, so here goes. The concept here is interesting, starting a cigar right at the "sweet spot" and not having to build up to it. It is a unique looking cigar and it feels solid. The wrapper was smooth and lightly veined. Too large a ring gauge for any cutter I own so it got a punch. These actually appear to be made for a punch as the cap has an extra layer on the very top. Took a minute to get this one completely lit but once I did it burned nicely. Ash held solidly and the burn was even. However, the draw was weak and the amount of smoke I got felt very unsatisfying. As I said earlier these are supposedly designed to start out at the peak flavor point but I didn't find this to be the case. It took about an inch to get any real taste out of it. With the cigar only being four inches long this seems like an issue to me. The flavors that did show up were muted and felt very bland on my palate. Light hints of spice and leather but not much else. Little to no finish. Smoked this one down to the band just so I could do the stand on it's own ash trick and snap a picture of it. Overall, I hope I just had a dud here. The flavors were there but they just never came forward. I've got three of these left and will definitely try another one here soon. Hopefully it goes a little better.
