Nomad Cigar Company Hits The Cigar Scene

Orlando, FL (March 28, 2012) – This March, Fred Rewey, founder and president of Nomad Cigar Company, Inc., introduced his first line of Nomad cigars.

Created in the heart of the Dominican Republic, Nomad’s initial offering comes in 5 shapes and each cigar showcases Dominican filler and binder with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper.

Nomad’s founder was adamant about focusing on the quality of the cigars first, and letting the price points fall where they must. Fred stated, “It doesn’t do any good staying focused on a [low] price point if you can’t deliver a solid cigar. Fortunately, at the end of the day, we were able to procure amazing tobacco and deliver it at an affordable price.”

Nomad’s flagship cigar is called the “Fugitive.” The 2012 Limited Edition is 5 7/8” in length with a max ring size of 64.  The Fugitive has a unique feature being tapered on both ends.

Also included in the initial line:

The “Drifter.” – Full 6” in length and a 60 Ring gauge.

The “Navigator” – A 6” Torpedo

The Renegade – A traditional 5 ½” x 54 Robusto

The Vagabond – 4 5/8” in length with a max ring size of 54 (also tapered on both ends).

The cigars are presented either in boxes or cellophane-bundled (online orders are “bundled” until late April).

Nomad also set out to shake up the cigar buying experience in two ways. One, people can go online and register for Nomad’s “Fugitive Club,” a cigar referral program that enables smokers to gain points and redeem for Nomad swag or even cigars. Secondly, Fred personally signs each order and Nomad has been known to throw “something extra” in the cigar orders – just to say thanks.

Nomad was focused on two factors from the very beginning; the cigars themselves and creating an unprecedented access to the company. It appears that they have accomplished both.

If cigar buyers are unable to find a retail location in their area currently carrying the Nomad line, they are also offered direct on Nomad’s website at www.NomadCigarCompany.com

How to Refresh a Dry Smoke…

It takes only a few weeks for a cigar to become dry in adverse conditions, but it takes a few months to restore them.  And although dry cigars could be brought back to an acceptable smoking condition, they will probably never be as good as they originally were.

So an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  Don’t let a good cigar go bad.  Read up on humidors and storage options on this website. [Read more…]

Create Your Own Flavored Cigar

Did you know you can easily create your own flavored cigars? Just take a few mild smokes (no maduro’s) and put them in a tight sealing container (no need for a humidor for this one). A tupperware bin works great.

Cigar Talk…Zino Davidoff

Rumor is…Zino Davidoff was best friends with Rothschild family, they both traded wine for cigars every year. Zino named his cigars after the 5 best first growth wines and later named a cigar after Dom Perignon champagne. Davidoff was allowed to raid Rothschilds personnel cellar for cigars, which after 1992 were never made in Cuban again. [Read more…]

How to Blow Smoke Rings

The term “blowing a smoke ring” is something of a misnomer and probably the reason many cigar smokers fail when attempting their creation.  Most people think they have to exhale to form a ring when, in fact, just the opposite is true. [Read more…]

Cigar Store Etiquette

Let’s be honest – when you walk into a well-stocked humidor, it may feel a little bit like Tennyson’s “Charge of the Light Brigade’ – cigars to the left of you, cigars to the right of you.  Dozens of brands [Read more…]

How Long Does it Take to Smoke a Cigar?

This is a surprisingly common question I get but it is an almost impossible answer. My friend Tommy laughs when I can make a smoke last as long as the “recommended smoke time.”

In a nutshell, the bigger they are the longer they smoke (like you had to go to a Cigar site to figure that out, huh?). Ok, ok, here are few benchmarks…

Presidente (8” – 10”) – about 1 to 1 ½ hours.

Double Corona, Churchill, Lonsdale (7 ½” – 8”) – about 45 minutes to an hour.

Corona Grandes, Corona Extra, Rubusto, Belicoso, Pyramid (5”-7”) – about 30 – 45 minutes.

Petite Corona, Culebra, Ascot – under 30 minutes.
