Fans of discontinued Nat Sherman cigar brands are picking up two more lines. New owners Ferio Tego are shipping Timeless Panamericana and Timeless Supreme, which should hit cigar shops by the end of next week.
Timeless Panamericana, which ships in boxes of 10, is made with Ecuadorian Sumatra casing, Nicaraguan binder, and Costa Rican and Nicaraguan fillers. The line will come in the following sizes: Julieta, 7 inches by 48 rings ($14.50); Gordo, 6 by 60 ($14); Epicure, 5 by 50 ($13); and Belicoso Fino, 5 1/2 by 52 ($12.95).
The box-pressed Timeless Supreme line of Nicaraguan puros comes in boxes of 21, which is extremely unusual for the cigar industry. Supreme is available in four sizes: 660, measuring 6 by 60 ($12); 749, 7 by 50 ($11); 652T, 6 by 52 ($11.50); and 554.5 by 54 ($10.50).
Both cigar brands are made in Nicaragua by the Plasencia family, and each has a secondary band reading “Exclusively for Ferio Tego”.
“We are grateful to the Plasencia family and the entire Plasencia d’Estelí team for working so hard to get these mixes back into production, exactly as they were,” said Michael Herklots, who co-founded Ferio Tego with Brendon Scott. Ferio Tego has been busy this year with the release of a pair of limited edition cigars when it first launched followed by the return of Timeless Prestige and Sterling.
