Timeless is back.

Next week, Ferio Tego will begin shipping the Timeless Prestige and Timeless Sterling brands to stores. Ferio Tego is the new company from Michael Herklots and Brendon Scott, both former employees of the now-shuttered Nat Sherman International. Herklots and Scott bought the rights to the Nat Sherman cigar and pipe brands, though not the rights to use the Nat Sherman name.

Timeless was the first brand Herklots worked on after joining Nat Sherman in 2011. The Timeless brands will return with the same blends as the original cigars and the packaging is nearly identical, though the secondary band now reads “Exclusively for Ferio Tego.” Timeless Prestige uses a Honduran wrapper over a Dominican binder and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic.

It will be offered in six sizes:

  • Timeless Prestige Churchill (7 x 48) — $11 (Box of 20, $220)
  • Timeless Prestige Gordo (6 x 60) — $12 (Box of 20, $240)
  • Timeless Prestige Hermoso (5 1/2 x 54) — $10.50 (Box of 20, $210)
  • Timeless Prestige No. 2 (6 1/4 x 52, torpedo) — $11.50 (Box of 20, $230)
  • Timeless Prestige Robusto (4 3/4 x 50) — $9.50 (Box of 20, $190)

Timeless Sterling uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Dominican binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. It will return in five sizes:

  • Timeless Sterling Churchill (7 x 48) — $14.50 (Box of 10, $145)
  • Timeless Sterling Corona Gorda (5 3/4 x 46) — $13.50 (Box of 10, $135)
  • Timeless Sterling Dalias (6 1/2 x 43) — $12.75 (Box of 10, $127.50)
  • Timeless Sterling Marevas (5 1/2 x 42) — $11.50 (Box of 10, $115)
  • Timeless Sterling Robusto (4 3/4 x 50) — $13 (Box of 10, $130)

Both cigars are made by the Quesada family in the Dominican Republic.

Ferio Tego has long said that the plan for 2021 was to first release a new brand, an eponymous Ferio Tego line, and then begin to reintroduce the old Nat Sherman brands. Those plans have changed as the Ferio Tego line—two limited cigars—is expected to ship in October.
