I'm considering trying out a few Nubs so looking for feedback and/or recommendation. The primary driver is Time. I don't enough time to enjoy the typical Corona or Toros that make up most of my collection. So I'm trying to find something a bit smaller which I can enjoy within a shorter period of time. I can't bring myself to cutting sticks in half :
I'm not interested or a fan of Cigarillos and haven't tried any Nubs so thought I'd ask. The ring gauge might be a little too big for my preference so looking for any advice or recommendations for Nubs or similar sized sticks. What to try, what to avoid?
I think the nub Connie and maduro aren’t bad. Have you thought about short robusto or smaller perfectos? Lots of good 4.5x50 type cigars out there. Arturo Fuente, Crowned Heads Jericho Hill, My Father Le Bijou, Fable Fourth Prime, oliva V #4 are some I’ve had that are worth a look...
Well if time is the main factor, then nubs aren't the answer. Though a shorter cigar in length, a typically nub is 58-60 ring gauge and may take as long or longer to smoke than a typical corona.
Petite coronas, rothschildes or short robustos might be what you are looking for. There are a lot of terrific smaller cigars that only take 30-35 minutes to enjoy. My favorite budget smoke in this size range is the Illusione Rothchildes (4.5"x 50).
I would offer up the following Roma Crafts, perfect for the short smoking window
Aquitaine and CroMagnon KnuckleDraggers 4X52
Aquitaine and CroMagnon Pestera Muierilor 4X46
Neanderthal SGP 4.5X52
Intemperance EC XVIII Virtue 4.5X52 or the Charity 4X46
Intemperance BA XXI Avarice 4.5X52 or the Intrigue 4X46
RoMa Craft Tobac Intemperance BA XXI The Intrigue
Tatuaje Havana VI Angeles - Petit Corona
Oliva Serie V #4
RoMa Craft Tobac Aquitaine Breuil
RoMa Craft Tobac Aquitaine Pestera Muierilor
Cabaiguan Guapos Junior
Good ones Chuck. The RomaCraft CroMagnon KnuckleDragger is one of my favorite cigars period, not just short. Those Last Calls are good too!
Tatuaje has a Petite Corona in the brown label that is very good.
Crowned Heads Jericho Hill Shots and La Imperiosa Minutos
LFD La Nox Petites are good ones too
Foundation Cigar makes a good little Charter Oak PC
