nub maduro 460ratings and scores


Okay, so on to the flavor. This is not a robust cigar by any means. It claims to be, but by today’s standards it is far from it. That does not mean it is bad though, in fact, quite the opposite, it is quite delicious. Just know what you are getting in to. If you are looking for a mouth busting buzz enabler, look somewhere else.

The flavor is consistent, and I am almost apt to believe what Mr. Leccia claims, as this cigar is decent from first light to last, well, nub. Hmm, maybe I should quit making fun of the grand experiment? The healthy, no, extreme amounts of smoke this cigar produces come with a very light spice, and deep Maduro flavor. I could get use to this as a mid-day cigar.

The construction, as I have found in all the Nub line, be it the Maduro, Connecticut, Habano, or Cameroon lines is simply perfect. Give the Oliva’s rollers credit, this construction is right up there with the super premium cigars. In fact, I would put the construction of Nub up against just about any cigar I have ever smoked - it’s that good.

A second nice feature of the Nub, and again true to Sam Leccia’s word is that the flavor profile does not change from beginning to end. The oily and richly hued wrapper befits this nice little stick of tobacco with its leather taste that has some minor caramel hints to it. I bet it would go well with a Dairy Queen…just kidding.

I need to work harder at coming to grips with the over the top marketing of the Nub line of cigars. Call me old fashioned, but I like a good cigar without a bunch of splash. Whenever someone has to wow me with their marketing skills I get concerned they are making up for some shortcomings in their product. This has always been my concern with the Acids, Lars tetens, and Nubs of the world. Nub could definitely hold their own simply on the quality of their cigars, and I wish they would. In fact, I would go so far as to say they are missing a large part of their potential market with their hip, just out of college marketing demographic. Sam’s a pretty spiffy guy, and his mantra of “Some rock, I roll” sure is cool, but even us uncool guys can get to like Nub. Rumor has it Nub is teaming up with Ernesto Padilla to bring out the Nub Miami; this should be something to look forward to. I guess I’ll just have to get used to the parade, guitars, and dancing elephants that are sure to accompany it.
