Nub Habano 460 5 Pack
4 x 60 - Natural - Pack of 5
nub Habano cigars are unlike anything you've smoked before. Manufactured by the Oliva Cigar Co., the concept is a cigar which, instead of just having a 'sweet spot,' is in its entirety a 'sweet spot.' nub delivers, too; with their large ring gauges and short lengths, routinely smoking for over an hour! The nub Habano is a rich, flavorful Nicaraguan puro surrounded by a lush, oily Habano wrapper. Expect a robust, full-bodied smoke loaded with complexity. A must-try!
Nicely wrapped and a good clean cut, let down by spongy construction. An effort to get properly lit and very uneven burn with a loose ash. Draw is consistent though. First few puffs were pretty brutal, with loads of spice. Settled down pretty quickly though to a full, mellow and rich tobacco flavour with a slight nuttiness. Creamy all the way through, and by mid way I picked up something softer, between woody and grassy. A bit harsher and soft past the band. I ve found other Nubs to be a bit moist and I suspect a few months in the humidor might produce a more even, consistent smoke with some developed flavours. Worth grabbing a couple for yourself. Looking forward to the Maduro, Cameroon and Connecticut.
I've only tried one of the Habano so I cannot say anything about its consistency except throughout the one I tried which was decent. It was a great flavored, rich and creamy smoke. I will agree with the other reviews in that it has a tighter than desired draw and you have to stay on it to keep it lit but enjoyable. Loved the Camaroon much better but that s a completely different flavor story.
I probably received a bad one, and hopefully it' s a one off, but this NUB had a terrible draw. Barely got through one third of this stick and couldn't continue as my face was starting to hurt from attempting to coax smoke from it. Had a much more positive experience with the NUB Connecticut.
Nub Habano is my reliable, go-to favorite cigar. I m not good at describing flavors, I just know when I ve found a Gar I can love. Consistent burn, thick, creamy smoke output, nice texture in the mouth. Compares with the Perdomo Habano and the Edge Habano, but I think the Nub has a touch more strength and flavor.
