Considered one of the most innovative cigar concepts, Nub is a line of short, stout and well-filled smokes blended to capture the perfect essence of a cigar. These cigars are completely made by hand with densely packed long-filler, allowing each stick to burn slowly while maintaining a smoking time comparable to conventional sizes ranging from robusto to presidente. Nub Connecticut is mellow, creamy, with nutty nuances and a light, subtly sweet finish.
The Oliva team has been fascinated with a cigar's natural tendency to fully develop in strength and flavor about 1/3 of the way into the cigar. They referred to this portion of a cigar as its “sweet spot”, and noted that it was typically temporary and short lived. Convinced they could capture this “sweet spot” in a compact smoke that would maintain perfect flavor from start to finish, team Oliva worked on many prototypes. In short time, they realized they made an incredible discovery, and by combining the perfect size and shape with certain blends, they were able to deliver only the best part of a cigar; its essence.
