Since the introduction of the brand in 2008, Nub has taken the cigar world by storm. When Sam Leccia, who also created the Cain and Cain F lines, blended these stogies, his original intention was to isolate and magnify the “sweet spot” of a cigar—the point at which the flavors peak. To do so, he rolled the same amount of tobacco in a Churchill into a super-short, super-big-ring stogie, and after extensive blend testing, the Nub was born. These stogies are hand-rolled in Nicaragua, and are available in buttery African Cameroon, creamy Ecuadorian Connecticut, spicy Nicaraguan Habano, or chocolaty Brazilian maduro wrapper leaves. You can expect a cool, easy draw every time you light one of these babies up, thanks to their huge ring gauges, and their solid construction ensures an even burn every time. Get yours here at the lowest prices available and see for yourself what all the buzz is about!
The Nubs 466BPT are one of the best cigars I have ever smoked. I only wish they were a little longer, say 5 1/2", so the pleasure could last that much longer!

I love this cigar! I love the idea of a large ring size with a shorter length. I also smoke a 6 x 60 cigar but it takes two hours to actually smoke it! I don't often have two hours of uninterrupted time. This cigar smokes about an hour, perfect! It starts off with a lot of pepper and cedar but as soon as it gets down about a 1/4", much smoother notes creep in. You get clear notes of coffee and some vanilla in background. One of the keys to smoking large ring size cigars is to ensure they have enough time to properly mature in your humidor and equalize with the humidity. This is simple physics. I give mine AT LEAST two weeks in the humidor before I consider them ready. Once they have a full month to equalize, they burn very evenly and steady. The large ring size burns a little cooler so you can appreciate the flavors on your tongue better. My girlfriend is a non smoker and thinks these smell great!
