After years of experimenting with cigar blends and construction, the folks at Oliva's Studio Tobac came up with the NUB, a revolutionary cigar that seeks to deliver only that most enjoyable part of the cigar. They believed that a cigar finds its “sweet spot” at the 3 ½- 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.
