Nat Sherman has announced a new cigar that will be an exclusive to the New York City Nat Sherman Townhouse, the Nat Sherman Panamericana.

In a post to his blog on Tuesday, Michael Herklots, vice president of retail and brand development for Nat Sherman said that the cigar is a full-bodied blend of aged tobaccos from Costa Rica and Nicaragua, with a stunning Ecuador Sumatra wrapper. “This new expression of Nat Sherman is sensationally complex in flavor, achieving great balance by tempering the Costa Rican tobacco’s unique attributes with three different Nicaraguan tobaccos,” he wrote, adding that “we’ve been tweaking this blend for two years, and the final product was well worth the time and effort.”

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.
