Today, Ferio Tego began shipping a new vitola in the company’s regular production Summa line.

The Summa Toro is a 6 x 50 toro with an MSRP of $19.50. Like the rest of the Ferio Tego Summa line, the blend is made at the Quesada family’s Tabacos de Exportación factory in the Dominican Republic using an Ecuadorian corojo wrapper covering an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and filler tobaccos grown in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.

“The word summa means a ‘comprehensive work,’ a ‘summary or a synthesis of the body of work’ thus far,” said Michael Herklots, co-founder of Ferio Tego, in a press release. “The Summa blend highlights the incredible trifecta of body, flavor and intensity…and maximizes those levels with wonderful balance.”

Ferio Tego was launched in 2021 by Herklots and Brendan Scott, two former Nat Sherman employees who bought the cigar- and pipe-related assets of Nat Sherman from their former employer. For the first two years of the company, Ferio Tego released limited editions or cigars that were originally created for the Nat Sherman brand. Summa, which debuted last year, marked the company’s first regular production blend that was developed by Ferio Tego and not a reissued Nat Sherman blend.

With the addition of the Toro, the Summa line includes five different vitolas:

  • Ferio Tego Summa Corona Gorda (5 3/4 x 46) — $18 (Box of 10, $180)
  • Ferio Tego Summa Robusto (5 x 50) — $19 (Box of 10, $190)
  • Ferio Tego Summa Torpedo (6 1/4 x 52) — $20 (Box of 10, $200)
  • Ferio Tego Summa Gordo (6 x 60) — $21 (Box of 10, $210)
  • Ferio Tego Summa Toro (6 x 50) — $19.50 (Box of 10, $195)

Ferio Tego is distributed by Davidoff of Geneva USA.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
