Nub Cameroon 358 (Gordo)

COVID-19 Day 381: 2.0-Mile Cigar
 Cameroon, Gordo, NUb 358, Nub Cameroon 358, Oliva Cigars, Tabacalera Oliva de Nicaragua S.A. Finger-Burner! Wow! A great way to start the day! … Sweet Leather and Wood kept me company on this tasty 2.0-Mile Cigar Walk with the Nub Cameroon 358 (3.7” x 58. Gordo)

This is an “Affordable” simple cigar sans the subtle nuances and transitions of a more sophisticated cigar, but, this comes with plenty of satisfying flavors from the first puff until the Finger Burning end to my morning trek… It had been over a year since I smoked this cigar last, so I was very happy to get reacquainted with this smooth smoking cigar!

I think I need to have these in stock in the TupperDor for some future Cigar Walks!

COVID-19 Cigar Walk

This was my second experience with the Nub Cameroon this one was in the 358 (Gordo) size; my first (10.25.19) was the Nub 466 Box-Press Torpedo Cameroon.

As I stated in my first impression of the Nub 466 Box-Press Torpedo Cameroon, these larger ring gauge cigars just aren’t my cup of tea.

Especially with today’s experience… I will say that these cigars appear to be firmly packed… maybe too much so. Mine was packed that I was having a difficult time with its very tight draw. After trying to fuss with it by cutting more off the cap and eventually trying to poke through with a toothpick, I got tired of sucking on this thing… My cheekbones hurt now.

I could tell that there were some decent tobacco flavors in the Nub Cameroon 358 (Gordo), but it just wasn’t worth the effort.

Maybe next time as I recently purchased a sample pack that included a few NUbs.
