The Oliva family created Studio Tobac as a think
tank for cigar innovation and creativity built upon the collaboration between
cigar makers and everyday enthusiasts. The results have been absolutely
stunning and, with the NUB Habano 466, have redrawn the boundaries of what a
great cigar should be.
The NUB Habano 466 is a uniquely stout 4” x 66
cigar that is surrounded by a velvety Habano wrapper leaf. The short yet thick
core is formed around earthy Nicaraguan filler tobaccos which are tucked into a
Nicaraguan binder leaf. The result is a beautifully-made cigar that may

cream douse the taste-buds during a gloriously long, delicious and fulfilling
If you love great cigars then the NUB Habano 466
is a must and will prove as gratifying as it is intriguing. The folks at Studio
Tobac set out to prove that a big smoke does not require overblown length and
it is safe to say mission accomplished.
