Nub Dub


Just when you thought the guys at Studio Tobac couldn’t possibly improve the Nub line, they dangle the Nub Dub. Back for a short time in 16 Nub samplers and sure to vanish in a puff of smoke as fast as they appear! Offered originally in 2010, this full-flavored, medium to full-bodied Nubber features two premium maduro leaves for the ultimate, super rich maduro experience. Nub Dub hails from Nicaragua and utilizes premium Nicaraguan long leaves all masked by a powerful Brazilian maduro wrapper.

Beneath this hearty, semi-sweet wrapper you’ll find a zesty Nicaraguan Habano maduro binder which creates a super complex taste and most definitely worthy of full production like the San Andrés Maduro that was offered in the 2011 Studio Tobac world tour sampler and even harder to find, however completely up to Oliva Cigars and Studio Tobac.

First look is a dark super oily Brazilian maduro wrapper with slight vein. Pre-light draw with nuances of coffee, cedar and earthy chocolate notes. Notable barn yard cedar and earth on the foot. Upon first light you are treated to massive dark chocolate and creamy cocoa notes with underlying flavors of of sweet cedar and earth.

After cruise control burn there are flavors of expresso, dark earth and burnt cedar with a nuance of sweet tea between draws on the palate. Final third the strength picked up but with flavors of coffee, dark chocolate, and creamy cocoa.

Construction and draw was perfect and the darkish grey ash held long and tight and would have continued way past the label. This was a High-Medium to full bodied cigar that would have paired wonderfully with morning coffee or a favorite libation after a full meal.
