The Oliva Cigar Company has received many awards, including Cigar Aficionados “Cigar of the Year” in 2014 for the Oliva Serie V Melanio. So it is no wonder that Sam Leccia of Leccia Tobacco approached the Oliva family to collaborate with him with the Nub 460 line. The two worked endlessly, experimenting with many shapes and sizes and blends until the Nub 460 was finally mastered. The 4 x 60 vitola was created by design, not as a gimmick. The concept being that the short and fat cigar would immediately release flavor upon lighting up. The Nub 460 was voted “2008 Best Buy” by Cigar Insider. You will be pleasantly surprised with this short in stature but bold in flavor Nub 460 Maduro.
The hand rolled Nub Maduro 460 is comprised of a dark brown, oily Brazilian Maduro wrapper and Nicaraguan long filler making it the boldest full-bodied nub in the Nub 460 line. The combination creates a creamy and robust cigar that releases an essence of mocha from start to finish. The 4 x 60 cigar delivers a naturally sweet smoke with rich flavors of caramel, dark chocolate and coffee.
Great on the golf course or a theater intermission, the Nub 460 Maduro is the perfect cigar for those with time restraints. Upon reaching that “sweet spot”, the only complaint you might have is that they don’t last longer.
