Wrapper type: Maduro
Filler / Binder:
Construction (0-20): When I grabbed this stick from the humidor I noticed immediately that the wrapper had a little bit of give to it, being soft to the touch. Everything felt pretty good within though, as there was just the right amount of tobacco spread throughout. The cut revealed a small amount of residue, but I will note it was just a tad more than I would have liked. The light and burn was even, with a very cool smoke down to the nub. The only other thing of note on this Savinelli is that the ash held about an inch and a half before needing to be flicked off.
Value (0-20): Looking at the prices of Nubs, this falls right in line with their MSRP. And given their taste… I would rate this as a better cigar than the majority of the Nubs I have had.
Additional Notes: Paired with coffee on my deck.
Overall (0-100): The major standout is how wonderful this cigar looks right off the bat. The construction is solid and it’s definitely value packed. The unfortunate portion is the slight conflict in the flavor palette, and very minor construction questions. Overall this was a very good cigar that I would have another of in a heartbeat.
