Nat Sherman is expanding their Metropolitan Selection line with a massive 8 x 70 vitola called the Tycoon. The new cigar is available in both Natural and Maduro wrappers, both packed in ten-count boxes with an MSRP of $10 per cigar.

Made in the Dominican Republic, the Nat Sherman Metropolitan Selection features Dominican binder and filler. Both wrappers are USA Connecticut, with the Natural version a shade grown leaf.

The addition of the Tycoon brings both the Nat Sherman Metropolitan Selection and Metropolitan Maduro Selection to seven vitolas:

  • Metropolitan – 7 x 50
  • University – 6 x 50
  • Angler – 5 1/2 x 43
  • Explorer – 6 1/2 x 52 Torpedo
  • Union – 4 1/2 x 50
  • Banker – 5 x 70
  • Tycoon – 8 x 70

The cigar is available for purchase in the Nat Sherman Townhouse in New York City, but has not been added to the company’s online store yet. The announcement of the new cigar came via an email to the company’s consumer mailing list.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
