These things are all the craze. You would have thought they were blended and rolled by Don Pepin Garcia, or Pete Johnson himself. No, these are hand crafted by the Oliva cigar family out of Nicaragua with a novel concept in mind; get the best part out of the cigar and bypass the other stuff. This was the original concept of the Nub brand. Since a lot of smokers claim to fall in love with the last third of their cigars more often, Oliva came up with a way for the smoker to have their cake and eat it too.

The particular vitola i had was the 358, are real short smoke that had some good flavors. The wrapper was pretty clean with hardly any veins. A nice looking cigar with a simple band. On inital light up I found a little pepper note, and some cedar. The cigar was smoking great until i got to the last couple inches. The burn was not the greatest as i had to touch it up several times. It started burning hot, and I wasn’t about to smoke a cigar that was tasting like burnt tires. All in all i had great hopes for this cigar… It’s not bad but It’s not worth all the hype either.
