Nat Sherman’s latest release comes with a celebratory theme, as it honors the 75th birthday of company CEO Joel Sherman.

Joel Sherman 75th Celebration

The Joel Sherman 75th Celebration is scheduled to be on display at this month’s IPCPR convention and trade show in Las Vegas, Nev., with shipping to begin in August. Production is being handled by the Quesada Factory in the Dominican Republic, with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and a Dominican binder and filler. The cigar measures 7 1/2 inches in length and has a 46 ring gauge. Only 2,500 ten-count boxes are being produced, with a single stick price of $19 and a box price of $190, before taxes.

“These cigars are the epitome of a lifelong desire to create a unique smoking pleasure for my friends and customers,” said Sherman, in a press release. “I have always been asked ‘how do you smoke a cigar?’ and my answer is always the same ‘however you like.’”

Sherman is the son of company founder Nat Sherman, and it was 54 years ago that he joined his father’s business at the age of 21.

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.
