As for the flavor of the Habano 460, it's enjoyable, but not too complex. I think consistent would best describe the cigar in this department. It begins with some subtle spicy notes that dominate the first third. The second third introduces some rich coffee that blends nicely with leather. The final third offers wood notes and re-introduces some spice. The cigar does offer a bit of a kick, but never gets too strong or overbearing.

Did I enjoy the Nub Habano 460? Yes. It was a quality smoke. Is it memorable or out of this world? No. The flavors could be deemed as lacking a ton of variety. Still, the cigar was consistent, as I mentioned before. As for the whole sweet spot promises, I didn't really pick up that feeling while smoking. If you enjoy cigars with fatter ring gauges, you may want to give the 460 a look. At around $5 to $6 each, the price point is not too extreme to give one a shot on a trial basis. The Nub Habano 460 can also be found in boxes of 24 or packs of five for those looking to buy in bulk. More experienced smokers will find the profile to be up their alley as compared to beginners who might want something smoother.

The Nub Habano 460 earns a rating of 3.25 out of four stars.

Nub Connecticut 460

As mentioned in the review of the Nub Habano 460, the line also comes in other wrappers. This review will concentrate on Nub's Connecticut-wrapped version. It's supposed to be milder, and I'm a fan of Connecticut wrappers, so let's give it a go.

The Nub Connecticut 460 measures 4 x 60. The line also comes in a 3 3/4 x 54 “354”, 3 3/4 x 58 “358”, and a 4 x 64 “464T.” The cigar has a Nicaraguan filler and binder and is finished off with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. The Nub Connecticut line is listed as being mild to medium-bodied in strength.
