An exceptional cigar thoroughly enjoyed it in its entirety.
These are my favorite for size, taste and draw. Mild and rich, excellent with anything, coffee, wine, beer or scotch.
I recently caught an interest in trying cigars after getting a set of four EP Carillo sticks in my monthly subscription box. I ve never smoked anything before, so I did a bunch of reading, ended up at famous-smoke, read up on tobaccos and made a list of flavor-infused cigars that sounded good enough to try, or had a good reputation, with the wrappers that sounded interesting to me bought all 5-packs so I could get a good feel for a cigar before making a decision about it . I ve tried a variety of cigars now, mostly flavor-infused, some not. This is one of my favorites, along with the Tabak Corona Negra dark wrapper and Isla Del Sol Gran Corona. I ve realized pretty quickly I do NOT like CT shade wrappers. They taste bitter to me, even in a sweet-tipped stick. The Nub Cafe Macchiato has a nice flavor of tobacco and coffee with a decent bit of sweetness. Even burn, fantastic smell, and a draw that feels right. Not too loose, not too tight, though a little bit towards the tighter side. If I catch these on Monster at a good price, I ll be grabbing a box.
The very best EVER! 100%. EFINITELY more than 80%
I m going to keep my review simple because there are several problems with this cigar that many people don t mention. While all the flavors that people speak of are true the construction of the cigar leaves much to be desired. It appears well rolled from the outside but once you start smoking it the first thing you notice is there seems to be a pipeline for heat directly under the wrapper that you feel on your lips after the first few draws. If you try to take any significant draw you immediately feel the heat reaching your lips as though you had the Cherry in your mouth. The other problem with this cigar it s so that when you get to the final quarter you are falling apart. This seems to apply to all of the nub Cafe series.
As I embark on this new journey I have to say this is my favorite infused cigar thus far. Tabak and ACID are a bit too sweet but this Macchiato with a cup of coffee makes for a great morning routine. Grab a box and your favorite cup of joe and enjoy the experience. TWO THUMBS UP!
I love these little cigars. Sun is coming up, a steaming hot Americano in my right hand and a Nub Cafe in my left hand. Best way to start a day that I can think of. This is a smaller cigar that delivers great taste and won t make you late for work. Most of the cigars are constructed very well but you will inevitabely run into a few in every box that is too tight and hard to daw. I have overlooked this flaw because of the taste...it s just awesome.
I agree with other reviewers for a high end cigar, the draw is terrible. I would say at least 50% o my box was un-smokable!!!!!! I will not be buying these again.
