The idea for the nubs came from the theory that a cigar finds its sweet spot at the 3 �- 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.
