Sam Leccia spent years experimenting with cigar blends and construction before he came up with the NUB, a revolutionary cigar that seeks to deliver only that most enjoyable part of the cigar. Sam believed that a cigar finds its sweet spot at the 3 - 4 inch point. All nub cigars must exist within this window. No nub is longer than 4 inches. Further adding to this complex theory, the ring gauges range from 56-66. The result is a range of smokes that have the same amount of tobacco as any Churchill or even Presidente. Unbelievably, they also smoke as long.
