Cigar Review: Nub Habano 460

Initial Thoughts:

My first thought was that the Nub Habano was a little dry and not oily at all. The end cap is so thick that my punch didn't make it all the way through; I had to pick the remaining cap out with my finger. 

After smoking the first third, which didn't take long, I felt like the smoke was a little ashy. The 60 ring gauge of the Nub Habano 460 felt good in the hand (an odd thing to say, I know), and the draw was easy and smooth.

Final Thoughts:

While I normally smoke larger cigars, I started the short and fat Nub Habano with an open mind. However, I didn't care for this cigar. The draw was smooth and consistent, but the burn was uneven. The aroma was good, but the flavors were dry and a little ashy.

I don't feel like this cigar deserves to be in the category of other sticks at this price point. I wouldn't choose to smoke another of Oliva's Nub Habanos, and for that reason, I give this cigar a CigarScore of 2.
