Quick Smoke: Nub Cameroon 358

21 Dec 2008

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

Like everyone else who pays attention to cigars, I’ve been inundated with Nub PR. But, until recently, I hadn’t smoked one. I’m not overly fond of large ring sizes and, while I don’t doubt the sincerity, I do doubt the “Nub Theory.” So I wasn’t sure what to expect when I lit up the Nub Cameroon. The answer: an OK cigar, but one I’d rank far behind others, such as Fuente and Cuban Crafters. I plan to try other Nubs; maybe I’ll be more impressed. On this one, though, the closest thing to a “sweet spot” that I saw was the $4 price.

Verdict = Sell.

    I tried a couple and was put off the size – although I've been told I have a big mouth – these just don't feel right. I wasn't overwhelmed by the taste either and agree with George E – there are much better cigars out there.

    I thought the same thing the first couple times I tried the Nub Cameroon but after a bit, they really did grow on me and I’ve come to enjoy them.

    I have to disagree…i love the flavor of the Cameroon. And for such a small stick it burns nice and slowly and never has any burn issues. I've pushed two hours with this one before. And you gotta love the way the ash virtually hangs on the entire way and if you get a straight ash you can try to stand it on its ash. pretty amusing.

    One thing you cannot deny about Nub cigars. They have lots of passionate fans!

    I think over all it's a better stoogy than it's more expensive counter parts
