Cuban Stock Cigars: Chubbys 3.4.5

Cuban Stock Cigars: Chubbys 3.4.5

I have been smoking Cuban Stock's for a couple of years now and have yet to run across on I didn't like and the Chubbys didn't disappoint me. To sum it up, the Cuban Stock Cigars Chubbys 3.4.5 pack a big punch for a short, stout stick!

Construction: Opening the bright red box was a rewarding experience; inside were 20 neatly packed cigars with a red and gold band around the neck and foot. Examining the first cigar I found it to be firm, well packed and the wrapper was nearly free from veins. The cold aroma from the foot was a mild mix of hay and tobacco. Once the cap was clipped, I found the draw to be free with notes of sweet berries.

Smoking Experience: Once the foot was toasted, the flame jumped from my lighter to the cigar and we were off. Again the draw was free and easy and the first puffs had a nice light oak flavoring. The cigar also produced a good amount of smoke with a tobacco, oak mix for the aroma.

After the first quarter inch, the flavor shifted to more of an earthy mix, but there was still a hint of sweet berries.

Near the mid point the earth and oak had traded places in the flavor mix and the berry sweetness increased a bit more.

For the final third the flavor profile stayed about the same but the body continued to get stronger. In the first third I would call this cigar medium-full bodied but in the final third it's a full bodied cigar. The ash held until the final third.

Final Thoughts: For those of you that follow my reviews, you know that 60 ring cigars and I don't always get along well together, but once again I had no issues with this cigar, or any other Cuban Stock Cigars, 60 ring tunneling. That shows me just how well these cigars are made.

The Chubbys is another high quality cigar from Cuban Stock Cigars. I really enjoyed this short, stout little bomb-shell and it would make a great addition to any humidor!
