Smooth yet rich, the Connecticut wrapper is great.
This is a very good cigar for the price! My favorite is the Ashton Cabinet #6 but that goes for $9.50 each. So, the Nub 358 offers a very good flavor and strong construction that is very affordable. I easily get a 2" to a 2 1/2" ash! The draw is good but the burn can be weak at the end. I have found that at times I have to re-hit it with the lighter to get a good finish. After trying 13 Nub's I have found that I get from 1 hour to about 1 and 10 minutes on the average. This is the ideal cigar for when you dont have more that an hour and a half to smoke. All in all, this is one of my favorite mild/medium cigars, with a great flavor, that will not disappoint. I give this cigar a 90 overall.
Not really into Conn. wrappers, but this was very good. Because of the nub design there is no fourplay, on the contrary: the flavors of spice and cedar hit you immediately like a ton of bricks! I have a sampler package so I am looking foward to trying the rest of the line (cameroon, habano and maduro). Would buy again. Overall score is a 92
Not my favorite, but the draw was good. Taste just wasn't there for me, however consistent throughout.
I tried this stubby stick last nite at the kick-off of Monday Night Football. By half-time, I was only 1/3 into the stick! Billows of smoke and smooth, although burn started to taper off and ended up with over 1 /1/2 inch ash but uneven burn. Maybe due to my lighting in breezy conditions. Next time I won't have the Shiner with this one - made for a good buzz! Burn faded 1/2 way in and upon relight, heated the center too much. I'll try it again before I make a final decision.
The burn on this little guy was good all the way through, no re-lights on this stick. From the very first puff to the last draw on this cigar the flavor was extremely consistent, woody, creamy and a very mild to medium flavor. After all, like beauty is to the eye of the beholder, flavor is a spectrum of one smoker?s palate. The draw was too good (is this possible) I punched a good size hole in this small stick because of the gauge size. I then realized I should have punched a smaller hole because this stick is so short. The appearance had small blemishes but a nice Connecticut shade color. Either way, because this was a hand rolled bad boy, the wrapper should have been discarded or the final stick should have been caught as a second in my opinion. The overall taste was really good, not great or excellent, but really good. The final construction was the only disappointment and kept this stick from hitting a 90 or above in my opinion.
