NUb Maduro 460

NUB 460 Maduro
4″ x 60
Nicaraguan filler
Nicaraguan binder
Maduro wrapper

purchased 09/03/09 at Tinderbox
smoked 09/09/09

Appearance: lovely dark shiny wrapper. Looks oily but does not feel it. Small veins throughout, did not cause any burn issues.

On cut, looked like folded chocolate. Slightly sweet pre draw. Somewhat more flavor than the NUb Habano, but still pretty mild. Nice taste and aroma.
Pretty strong on nasal exhale, but not brutal. Initial smoke fairly thick, with a short finish.
Excellent construction as usual with NUb cigars, slightly uneven burn on lighting, my fault. Appears to be correcting itself.
Smoke from the foot OK, but drawn smoke very thick and creamy.
As seems to be the norm with this line, flavors pretty straight forward. Nice, but lacking the depth of other Olivas or Camachos.
Ash is nice and firm, another trademark of the line. Almost a quarter in, and the song remains the same. Consistent flavor, but no changes at all.
So far pretty much neck and neck with the Habano, maybe a slight edge to the Habano. It would probably boil down to what you were drinking to make the call.
Must not be too bad, getting a little warm as I need to slow down a bit.
About a half in now, some flavor change but not positive. I might have got this one a little hot, slightly burnt taste. An odd characteristic to give smoke I know.

I have another one of these in the humidor, I’ll have to try it after it has a little more time to rest. About six months should do for a second try.
