Nub Cameroon 460 (Gordo) by NUb / Oliva Cigars

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 597: 2.75-Mile Cigar
 Cameroon, Gordo, Nub 460, Nub Cameroon 460, Oliva Cigars, Tabacalera Oliva de Nicaragua S.A., South America Brrrr… it was 29°F (-1.7°C) on this morning’s 2.75-Mile Cigar-Walk with this generous gift from BOTL Curran Fouts aka @pdxTravels in this African Cameroon wrapped Nub Cameroon 460 (Gordo) by Oliva Cigars.

I’m impressed! I don’t normally choose a NuB as my first choice to smoke, but that may change soon… “Sam Leccia (cigar blender) – came up with an entirely new concept in cigar making that begged the question: What if you could start smoking your cigar at the point where it has the richest amount of flavor and strength? Made by Oliva Cigars in Estelí, Nicaragua, in 2008 that concept became reality with the release of the Oliva Nub selection.” From Famous-Smoke Cigar Advisor.

True to the promise of this concept… immediately upon being lit… those “sweet-spot” tobacco flavors came forth on an earthy, slightly nutty, slightly sweet ride. I had a similar reaction to my smoking experience with its Cameroon sister in the NuB Cameroon 358 Gordo.

I just may have a new “Darling” to add to the TupperDor… Thank you, Curran!
