In 2008 the Oliva Cigar Company and Sam Lecchia released their collaboration Nub 460. With Oliva’s strong reputation and experience and Sam’s creative marketing skill, the two have developed a line of cigars that have received rave reviews. When you crave a cigar that is long in flavor but short on stature, the Nub 460 is a perfect addition to your humidor collection.
The Nub 460 collection comes in several varieties, but for smokers who crave a mild and mellow cigar they should certainly try the Nub 460 Connecticut.
The silky Ecuador-Connecticut wrapper is soft yet firm when pinched. Creamy and mellow from the start, it is buttery rich and smooth in texture.
The girth could seem awkward to the first time Nub smoker. With ring gauge of 60 and length of 4 inches, it may seem a little weird at first. But after time one will feel naturally comfortable handling the Nub.
The Nub 460 Connecticut is a medium bodied cigar in the Gordo shape. Rich and thick this beefy cigar contains notes of coffee and cedar.
In the summertime my friend and I enjoy our stogies on the deck of his bayside home. After hours of laughing, drinking and smoking, I noticed his ashtray was filled with twice as many of his fast burning cigars than my Nubs. I asked why he preferred them to a slower burning cigar and he responded “price”. I finally convinced him to try a Nub 460 and he’s been a fan ever since.
