Nub Sumatra by Oliva New

Small Batch Nubs by Studio Tobac

Nub’s Small Batch Beauties! 

You’d be hard pressed to find a series of cigars with more success than NUB. Originally invented to capture the “sweet spot” of a cigar throughout its entire duration, this line of short and stout lovelies is clearly at the top of the game. That’s why we were grinning from ear to ear when boxes of the new Nub Studio Tobac creations started arriving. Studio Tobac refers to the small-batch releases from the NUB masterminds. Each cigar in this series is unique in the tobaccos included, or in the skill needed to create that vitola. Give one a whirl today and I guarantee you’ll find something to love. And keep your eye out for more blends in the future… something tells me this one’s gonna catch on most ricky-tick. 

Sumatra: A unique new offering on the NUB line, the Nub Sumatra utilizes the same wrapper leaf as the famed Serie ‘V’ Melanio to craft an absolute winner of a blend. A real heavy-hitter, with a naturally sweet finish.

Robust yet smooth
Perfect for a 30 min walk in the fall. Nutty undertones from the start with a robust yet smith smoke. Very enjoyable.

I know the reason behind nub
And..... I guess they forgot what part of the cigar they were supposed to sell. I love nub cigars, even the cafe series, but this one was a miss.. flavors seemed off. Like drinking orange juice after you brush your teeth. It didnt smoke like a nub either... that I can blame on the 10 days they sat in the back of a truck shipping to my house...

Nub Studio
I really enjoy Nub cigars. The new Studio is milder-but a good stick. burns rather quickly-more of a before dinner cigar. Really a nice change of pace from the full cigars. Will keep them in stock!!!

Like the main description of this cigar states - it has the same wrapper as the Serie V Melanio which is a personal favorite (though I like the Melanio Maduro more than the natural). This Nub Sumatra is by far my favorite Nub and believe me I tried all of them several times over. Thank you Oliva!

A welcome addition to the NUB family!
A nice smoke at a nice price point. As a fan of the 460's NUB has hit a home run with this release; a medium bodied stick with a lot of flavor. Well constructed as you'd expect with a nice burn,. On my third box now - this is becoming my go-to cigar.

I love cigars. If you’re surprised by that, you may be reading the wrong website… but bear with me a moment, because I want to lodge a little complaint against our handmade industry. Quite simply – there’s a lot of “noise” out there. Every cigar brand likes to hearken back to their century old history, their great-great-grandad’s original vision of “proper, Cuban” fermentation methods, the magic beans they purchased from an Ecuadorian peasant for two cows that went on to become the basis for their farm, or the secret song they sing to their tobacco plants to make them grow big and strong. It’s a lot of marketing nonsense, to be blunt. At the end of the day, here’s what I care about: does a cigar taste good, or nah? 

Why do I bring this up? Because as much as I love Nub cigars, the story behind them is a little hocus pocus-y. Here’s the pitch: standard length cigars take a little while to develop, yeah? If you read the crazy cigar blogs out there, they’ll tell you all about how a cigar’s first through twenty-ninth puff tasted of lemongrass and alfalfa sprout waffles before it finally blossomed into lightly roasted coffee, Madagascar vanilla beans, and licorice sticks. Nub cigars by Oliva, on the other hand, are supposed to start at their “sweet spot” right away – basically, hit the good notes from the beginning and keep things short and sweet (unlike this lengthy Oliva cigar review.) Is it true? Who knows. But today we’re going to ask the more important question — the new Nub Sumatra… does it taste good? 

Yes. Yes it does. 

Oh, you want more? Alright, let’s do this thing. Nub Sumatra by Oliva is a recent release of one single size, a 4”x60 Gordo (sort of the Nub standard) in 10-count boxes. Easy on the eyes and easy on the wallet, I knew I’d be doing a little employee order as soon as these babies hit the dock. Sumatra is an entry in the recent “Studio Tobac” sub-brand of Nub: a series of single-size expressions that each offer something totally unique to the Nub lineup. So what’s this cigar’s claim to fame? It utilizes the same wrapper leaf as the uber-popular (and my personal favorite) former #1 Cigar of the Year – Oliva Serie V Melanio.

Basically, if you love Melanio, but wished it came in a bigger and badder version, stop reading this thing now and pick yourself up a box ASAP. 

Sparking this sucker up, I was nervous. I friggin’ love Melanio, and if this thing didn’t perform as expected, it’d feel the same as watching someone pour out a glass of Pappy Van Winkle and then taking it like a shot of Jack – exciting, and then real, real disappointing. Luckily, the folks behind Oliva Tobacco Company did not let me down. Nub Sumatra is a little smoother and mellower than the Serie ‘V’ Melanio, but beyond that, it was everything I love about that sultry Sumatra profile. The wrapper leaf is dark, thick, oily, and seamless in appearance. Coming in just a notch below full-bodied, this full-flavored Napoleon complex of a stick delivers rich and unique nuances including a slightly-sweet baseline of flavor, complimented by leathery notes, some chocolate, and a nice hint of black pepper that’s never overwhelming. Overall, one of the best Nub cigars I’ve tried to date.

I’ll be clear – this is never going to replace Melanio for me. But it’s definitely an awesome “tweaked” version of the blend that I’ll be sure to keep in my humidor for the foreseeable future. Or, more simply: does Nub Sumatra taste good? Hell yes.
