First Nub I have ever smoked and at first I thought I would be disappointed. Cold draw was kind of bland, and the constriction seemed to be really tight. The first third of the cigar was very disappointing, very harsh flavors of pepper, oak, leather and wood. On the retrohale, the smoke got even hotter and was really harsh. Once I got to the second third the cigar really came into its own. The flavors of oak, leather, wood and earth really mellowed out into a nice smoke. Last third was good as well but it started to get hot, and it went back to being harsh again. It was an overall good smoke that I would smoke again. Going to get a 5 pack and let it age for a bit.
I didn't like this cigar at all. Harsh from the start and not enjoyable at all. I tried this cigar twice and both times I was disappointed. Maybe I didn't leave in my humidor long enough but I will probably never try these again.
I'm a newbie to the cigar world and I have to tell you I was surprised in this little NUB cameroon! I have been in several shops and seen then and always pasted them up, stopped by a shop in Little Rock, Ar and one of the helpful fellows there recommended one to me. So why not I bought it and I have to say I'll be buying them more often. The burn was slow and consistent. The draw was easy and I used my Cuban Crafters Perfecto Cutter which is great. Smooth and creamy smoke, and I could smell the hint of cedar and coffee. But I could also smell a hint of cocoa too! For being a medium-bodied cigar I was very surprised that it wasn't to strong and overpowering. This will be a great to go with my Saturday morning coffee out on the patio, oh well I must say maybe every morning coffee. LOL - looking to get me a stash of these little NUB's. Yummy
