Nomad Connecticut Toro Cigar For Sale OnlineThe Nomad Connecticut was part of the company’s first couple releases, and though one of its sizes was only available in a limited edition, the rest remain popular two years after their release. The company’s founder, Fred Rewey, admits that a lot of stogie makers are trying to reinvent this type of stick, and aficionados can now throw his name on top of the pile. However, this is one of those few attempts at a well-worn concept that actually pans out. Rewey has claimed in several interviews that blending the stick was extremely tough, but it certainly doesn’t seem that way, given the across the board success of this smoke.

The Nomad Connecticut has remained a top seller for the company since its founding and is rolled with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, an Ecuadorian Habano binder and fillers from the Dominican and Nicaragua. It’s a light tan smoke that is mostly free of any marks, veins or otherwise. It is touched up with a slight veneer of oil and glints in the light. The band is red, black and white and displays the name of the company in fat type and the brand’s mark as well. The stogie is available in several vitolas, including Robusto (5 x 50), Corona (5 1/2 x 44), Robusto Gordo (5 1/2 x 54), Toro (6 x 52), Belicoso (6 1/4 x 54) and Lancero (7 x 38). It is rolled at the Tabacalera L & V factory in the Dominican, and this is something that Rewey has received some attention for. Even though he’s only a couple years in, Rewey has split his stogie production between factories in the Dominican and Nicaragua, so there’s some nice variance between stogies.

As soon as the Nomad Connecticut is lit up, a strong cinnamon note comes through and is matched up with a bit of black pepper and a distinct nutty flavor. A few draws in, and some cream and vanilla sweeten the profile up considerably. This is cut with a spice flavor that emerges about an inch in and adds balance to the mix.

During the middle third of the Nomad Connecticut, reviewers note that the spice flavor ramps up in strength while the rest of the profile remains unchanged for the most part. The cinnamon flavor is still a primary note, the nutty flavor is the singular secondary note, and the black pepper has migrated to the retrohale. The vanilla and cream are tertiary at this point, sapping some of the sweetness from the stick.

In the last third of the Nomad Connecticut, the profile again holds steady, offering a consistent mix of cinnamon, spice, black pepper, nuts, vanilla, and cream. The black pepper gets a touch stronger near the end, but it never dominates the profile.

Though the smoke is far from a nicotine bomb, its flavors are rather intense, steering it toward a medium-full body. The split production has served Rewey well, also, as the burn and draw are both spot on.

It’s so well put together, in fact, that aficionados might be excused for thinking Rewey has been around for more than a couple years.
