It’s been less than a year since Ferio Tego shipped its first cigars to stores, but the company is set to release a 10th anniversary cigar next month.

That’s because Ferio Tego, for all intense and purposes, is the continuation of Nat Sherman’s cigar business. After Nat Sherman’s parent Altria announced plans to close the business, Michael Herklots and Brendon Scott—two former Nat Sherman employees—bought the cigar portfolio, though the pair are not allowed to use the Nat Sherman name.

The Ferio Tego Timeless Ten Years celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Timeless brand, which technically launched at the Nat Sherman Townhouse store in late 2011 before shipping to stores nationally in early 2012. Timeless was one of the first new cigars to come from Nat Sherman after the company hired Herklots as its executive director for retail and brand development.

For this new cigar, Herklots selected Quesada Cigars—one of two factories that produce the regular Timeless brands—and the end result is a 5 3/4 x 54 robusto extra that uses a Dominican wrapper over a Dominican binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. It will have an MSRP of $18.50 per cigar and is limited to 2,500 boxes of 10 cigars.

Ferio Tego will show off the cigar at this week’s 2022 PCA Convention & Trade Show and it is expected to begin shipping to stores in early August.
