First Half – Notes of roasted nuts, coffee and baking spice blend nicely to begin this smoke. This picks up to a wood-like note with the nutty flavors opening up a few minutes in. The burn was sharp and ash held through the half.
Final Half – Wood and nuts continue here and get really rich and heavy on the palate. The burn remained sharp and the ash fell around the 3-inch mark.
Whiskey – WhistlePig
Wine – Chandon Sweet Star
This Nub Cameroon was a good yet simple cigar with two real dominant flavors that were robust on the palate. Not my favorite from the Nub Cigars line as I think the Habano is the best of the lineup, but a good cigar nonetheless.
