Fred Rewey of Nomad Cigar Co. reached out to me yesterday in regards to some additional information on the S-307. If you are not aware of what S-307 is, it is the soon to be release from Nomad Cigar Company. This will be the second release from Nomad that is produced in Nicaragua, and this specific cigar will be coming out of Tabacalera AJ Fernandez. The cigar is going to be released in three vitola offerings that are a robusto which is 5" by 50, a toro that is 6" by 50 and a torpedo that is 6.5" by 52.
The cigar will feature a Sumatra wrapper from Ecuador, an Ecuadorian Habano binder and a filler blend composed of Nicaraguan tobacco. The cigar will be box pressed and is going to be packaged in 21 count boxes. Prices will be between $7.75 and $8.00, and this will be the first full production Nicaraguan cigar by Nomad Cigar Company. We can expect to see the cigar hit the market in late September or early October, and this will be the first cigar that Fred Rewey and Nomad Cigar Co. will be releasing with A.J. Fernandez.
I am eager to smoke this cigar and look forward to the flavor profile it will offer. I think that Ecuadorian Sumatra seed can be incredible when used correctly, and the fact that the cigar is box pressed is very appealing to me. I also love that he is using Ecuadorian Habano tobacco as the binder leaf because it is a tobacco that adds so much to the cigar. Reading over the blend it makes me think of the fairly new smokes Headley Grange and E.P. Carrillo Short Run 2013, and those are terrific smokes, and I think this cigar could be up there with them. Fred is making some great cigars right now and I believe this will be another success for the company.
