altTo help you get through your case of the Mondays, we have two very good cigars to review today.  First up is the Nub Cameroon 460, followed by the Cuenca y Blanco Toro Supremo.

Nub Cameroon 460

Have you heard of cigars having a so-called sweet spot?  Well, Oliva Cigar Co., the makers of Nub, aimed to design cigars that offer a smoking experience that is 100 percent sweet spot.  Nub cigars often stay true to their name by having a stubby, short appearance with rather large ring gauges.  For this review, I decided to give the Nub Cameroon a try.  It’s said to be smooth and rich and I enjoy cigars with Cameroon wrappers, so I said “why not?”  Now, on to the review.

The Nub Cameroon 460 definitely reflects its Nub name by measuring 4 x 60.  Other sizes in the line include the 3 3/4 x 58 358, the 4 x 64 464T, and the 4 x 66 466 BPT.  Just reading those measurements, you see that I wasn’t lying about these cigars having some large ring gauges.  As for the cigar’s composition, it has a core of Nicaraguan tobacco, while its exterior comes in the form of a Cameroon wrapper.  The strength of the Nub Cameroon is listed as medium-bodied.

The first thing I notice when looking at the Nub Cameroon 460 is its short and thick stature.  I actually enjoy this form factor, as it sits nicely in my hand.  It’s also pretty eye-catching.  The wrapper is medium brown in color and quite smooth with just a little bit of oil.  There are hardly any veins, and no imperfections are present.  A classy band near the head showcases the Nub Cameroon name over a blue, white, and gold color scheme.  It’s one of the “cleanest” bands I have seen in terms of design.  Prior to lighting, there’s a rich aroma, while the cold taste is a tad spicy.

Once lit, the Nub Cameroon 460 exhibits a solid burn.  The draw is good and I get plenty of thick smoke.  The aroma is a bit sweet and the ash is sturdy.  A couple of occasional touchups are needed, but that’s about it.  No re-lights are necessary.  All in all, I really have no complaints in this department.  Smoking time is about one hour total.
