Ferio Tego has announced that two more former Nat Sherman brands will return to stores next week. The company—established earlier this year—bought the rights of the Nat Sherman cigar portfolio and has been bringing back the old Nat Sherman lines using familiar packaging and the same blends and factories.
The Ferio Tego Timeless Panamericana debuted in 2014 as an exclusive for the Nat Sherman Townhouse, the Nat Sherman retail store that was located in Manhattan. In 2015, the company offered it to retailers who were members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America, and then in 2018 began offering to all Nat Sherman cigar retailers.
Now it’s returning with the same blend as before: an Ecuadorian Sumatran wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Costa Rica and Nicaragua. It is made at Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
- Ferio Tego Timeless Panamericana Epicure (5 x 50) — $13 (Box of 10, $130)
- Ferio Tego Timeless Panamericana Belicoso Fino (5 x 52) — $12.95 (Box of 10, $129.50)
- Ferio Tego Timeless Panamericana Gordo (6 x 60) — $14 (Box of 10, $140)
- Ferio Tego Timeless Panamericana Julieta (7 x 48) — $14.50 (Box of 10, $145)
The Timeless Supreme is also made at Plasencia Cigars S.A. and uses a blend that consists entirely of Nicaraguan tobaccos. It was introduced in 2012 as Timeless Nicaraguan but rebranded to Timeless Surpeme in 2018.
It will be offered in four sizes:
- Ferio Tego Timeless Supreme 554 (5 x 54) — $10.50 (Box of 21, $220.50)
- Ferio Tego Timeless Supreme 652T (6 x 52) — $11.50 ($241.50)
- Ferio Tego Timeless Supreme 660 (6 x 60) — $12 (Box of 21, $252)
- Ferio Tego Timeless Supreme 749 (7 x 50) — $11 (Box of 21, $231)
Both cigars will begin shipping next week and are expected to be on shelves on Nov. 18.
“We are thrilled to complete the Timeless Collection with the return of Panamericana and Supreme to the market,” said Michael Herklots, co-founder of Ferio Tego, in a press release. “We continue to work closely with our manufacturing partners and our retail partners to thoughtfully launch Ferio Tego and restore these blends to the humidors of those who have enjoyed them for so many years.”
Ferio Tego is the new company founded by Herklots and Brendan Scott—both former Nat Sherman employees; the pair bought the rights to the Nat Sherman brands. Its agreement included the rights to the individual lines and products, though not the use of the Nat Sherman name, hence the Ferio Tego name. Altira, parent of Nat Sherman, decided to shut down the company’s cigar and pipe tobacco division last year.
