Quick Smoke: Nub Habano 358

13 Sep 2008

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

After an excellent experience with the Nub Connectiut, I gave this slightly smaller 3 and 3/4 inch by 58 ring gauge Habano-wrapped Nub a whirl. More full-bodied than the Connecticut, it had strong cedar flavors with an earthy finish and flashes of spice. Unfortunately, there was also a slight chemical flavor that seemed to be dueling with far more pleasant notes of bittersweet chocolate. There were two noticeable imperfections with the construction: The wrapper was a bit veinny and multi-colored, particularly around the cap, and the burn started quite uneven, only to correct itself.

Verdict = Hold.
