Nub Cameroon by Oliva
Size: 460 Gordo 6 x 52
Wrapper – African Cameroon
Binder – Nicaraguan
Filler – Nicaraguan
With a very faint pre ignition aroma of sweet grass, this stick is well constructed with a well placed cap. The wrapper is an art piece of heavily toothy (sandpaper like), oily dark Cameroon. A straight cut achieves a medium open draw, with cocoa-like cold draw characteristics.
10 puffs deep and a very mild and creamy smoke. Sweet on the pallet with a cocoa/bread magnifying on the retro. Well into the 1/3 and consistent. This cigar was a sweet honey/pepper mix. The cocoa has also dropped off to a light wood/cedar.
Into the 2/3 and an impeccable burn with a bright ash. This wrapper is so distinctive and rich with a consistency thus far. Toasted bread and cedar with a hint of saltiness, almost peanut like (yep, salted peanuts). ½ way on consistent. Surprisingly slow burning the diameter compensates for the nub nature. An impeccable burn continues as the monolithic bright white ash co to yes to grow. The tooth can also be noted on the ash as well. The flavors are very mouth oriented, with an oily and very sweet and rich value.
