Nub 358 Cameroon

This is one of the hyped up Nubs, the 3 ¾ inch small ring 58 with the Cameroon wrapper. The cigar has a strong aroma of manure, a light colored wrapper with small veins but the predraw is too light, too easy even though the cigar feels well constructed.
After lighting I could taste that this cigar is made my Oliva due to their recognizable sweet flavor that you find in any Oliva blend, but it’s combined with a spicy herb flavor. Soon after it’s wood instead of the sweetness but the spicy herbs continue to be noticeable. Halfway I get a slight burning sensation which fades away soon and the wood & herbs are flavorful again. Only the last part of the cigar is really enjoyable.
The draw is way too easy, but the close to perfect burn, the firm white ash and the amount of smoke are good.
Would I buy this cigar again? No, there are better cigars in the price range and the Nub habanos is better than the Cameroon.
