Forged from the ashes of the Great Depression, Nat Sherman Cigars have become an international staple for cigar aficionados around the world. The company’s humble beginnings started in New York City, where the titular owner began what would eventually become one of the most recognizable and sought after brands within the premium tobacco arena. This prestigious company is family owned, spanning several generations.
The Nat Sherman Cigars Sterling line offers up 5 different sized vitolas, featuring a combination of Dominican fillers and binders with a premium Ecuadorian wrapper. These stogies provide a nice, creamy smoke and are said to contain complex flavors without being too over powerful in its overall profile. Keeping with the brand’s tradition, the Sterling Line comes packaged in an elegant, but traditional slide-top cabinet box.
Their 1930 stogie line combines the tobacco fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic and offers up a now world-recognized Dominican wrapper, bearing the company’s name in deep red. The 1930 is adored for the perfect balance of the strength of the body, the flavor profile, and the tantalizing aroma. One of their richer products, the 1930 also contains a complex set of flavors that range from nutty to sweet, maintaining an overall light experience.
The company isn’t afraid of pushing boundaries, and in its search for something better, created the Nat Sherman Timeless Collection #2, rolled by the infamous Manuel Quesada. This premium stick boasts Nicaraguan, Honduran and Dominican Republic tobaccos. Reviewers say that the notes of espresso and rich cedar are only enhanced further by the hints of nutmeg and delicious dark chocolate.
The famous Metropolitan line, a nod to the company’s origins, is one of the most recognizable stogies in the world. Bearing the dark blue colors on a band of bright red, featuring a classic timepiece, the Metropolitans are known for their unique draw. The smoke has been described as sweet, yet creamy. The flavors range from a light coffee, to an earthy side, with nuttier and sweeter undertones. This medium bodied stogie has been remarked as being the embodiment of Connecticut, containing a wide array of flavors. Although the overall smoke is rather mild, it stands up fine with the body’s solid construction and perfect ash. This one-of-a-kind mix of premium, exotic flavors, yet intimate and local manufacturing has been bringing in customers to try its products for close to a century now.
It’s easy to see that Nat Sherman Cigars pride themselves on their premium line of products, which do well to set them apart from the other run-of-the-mill bargain tobaccos. This isn’t new-age thinking, but rather a classic and timeless approach to this favorite past time.
