Today I will review another cigar from the Studio Tobac Sampler Pack, the Nub San Andres Maduro.  As of yet there are no plans for the release of this cigar, it remains unique to this Sampler.

Nubs are known for their size; they are usually around 4 inches long and have large ring sizes. They were said to have been created so that you can enjoy the best of a cigar. It’s only 4 inches so you get right to it from the moment you first light to the moment you finish. Now don’t shy away from the size of these cigars and think that they are a quick smoke, it is quite the contrary. They actually burn pretty slowly, this cigar in particular lasted me well over an hour!

It has a dark oily wrapper and is very well constructed. This cigar does have some peppery spice to it, but evens out as smoked for a nice smooth finish. I noticed coffee and chocolate notes as I smoked.  It stayed pretty consistant throughout the smoke.  This is not as full bodied as I thought it would be from the looks of the wrapper, but nevertheless a very good medium bodied smoke!
