Oliva - Nub 358 Connecticut (Box of 24)

$220 USD

This well-packed cigar may be short in length, but it's anything but short on taste and quality. The Nub series were designed so that the cigar smoker can enjoy that special "sweet spot," which is usually found in the middle of a smoke, from first spark to last puff. The large ring gauges have become a feature of the cigar industry, with Nub leading the way, due to the amount of flavorful tobaccos that can be packed in a small package.

The Nub Connecticut is made with a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan long fillers in an Ecuadoran grown Connecticut wrapper with a visibly oily sheen. There's a hint of morning toast when you first light up, followed by a complex series of woodiness and spice. It burns great, it tastes great, and it's become a mainstay in countless humidors.

Length (in inches): 3.8
Ring Gauge: 58

Quantity: Box of 24 Cigars
Shipping Details: Will be delivered within 8-12 working days

Melanio Oliva cultivated his first tobacco crop in Pinar Del Rio, Cuba in 1886. His growing operations were suspended while he fought in the Cuban War of Independence. After returning from the war, Melanio resumed his tobacco growing operations. In the early l920’s Melanio’s son Facundo Oliva took over the grow­ing operations. Facundo cultivated the Oliva family tobacco fields for several decades. As Cuba became overrun by the Communists, the tobacco landscape changed. Facundo’s son Gilberto Oliva shifted from growing, to brokering tobacco. In the early 60’s the pressure became too great and Gilberto traveled from country to country in search of the conditions to recreate that distinctive Cuban taste.

His travels took him to Honduras, Panama, Mexico and even the Philippines. Gilberto finally found fertile ground in Nicaragua. Today Gilberto along with his family are Nicaragua’s second largest grower of Cuban-seed tobac­co. Using these same time tested methods of curing, blending, and rolling that built an empire, the Oliva cigar lineup has garnered tons of top- ratings from industry experts and consumers alike, culminating with Cigar Aficionado Magazine awarding the Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado Cigar of the Year in 2014.

If you have yet to experience an Oliva, you’re missing out on one the best cigars that you will ever smoke!
