nubnub cameroon 460


If I had to pick one word to describe the overall flavor profile of the Nub Cameroon, it would be smooth.  Yes, it’s as smooth as advertised.  It starts off with a rich coffee flavor that is joined by some spice in the first third.  The second third continues with the coffee kick until some creaminess joins in.  I also notice some wood towards the end of the second third.  The final third caps things off with coffee, cream, sweetness, and nuts.  This is a medium-bodied cigar all the way.

I enjoyed smoking the Nub Cameroon 460.  It’s definitely a quality cigar that offers a good burn and flavor.  I obviously would not recommend it to those who dislike thick cigars, but if you love them, then go for it.  A single costs $5 to $6, and you can also find it in packs of five or boxes of 24.  I would at least spring for a fiver. 

The Nub Cameroon 460 earns a rating of 3.5 out of 4 stars.

Cuencay Blanco Toro Supremo

Cuenca y Blanco is a relatively new brand that launched during the IPCPR show in 2012.  It was the result of a collaboration between Joya de Nicaragua president Dr. Martinez Cuenca and senior VP Jose Blanco, hence the name.  Distributed by Drew Estate, the cigar has a multinational vibe thanks to its tobaccos from several different countries, and this is said to give it plenty of flavor.  I love flavor and cigars with complex compositions, so let’s see if this one delivers, shall we?

I’ll be smoking a Toro Supremo format for this review, which measures 6 x 54.  Other sizes in the line include the 5 1/4 x 50 Robusto Deluxe, 5 1/2 x 46 Corona Real, 6 1/4 x 52 Torpedo Especial, and the 6 1/2 x 44 Lonsdale Club.  Regarding that multinational composition, here it is:  the filler is a blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos from the country’s Esteli and Ometepe regions, as well as Peruvian tobacco.  A Dominican Piloto Cubana binder comes next, and an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper is the final piece of the puzzle.  Strength-wise, the Cuenca y Blanco is listed as medium to full-bodied.
