Nat Sherman Expanding Timeless Nicaragua with Three New Vitolas


Nat Sherman’s Nicaraguan Timeless Collection line will be adding three sizes in the weeks coming up to the 2013 IPCPR trade show, according to Michael Herklots, the company’s executive director of retail and brand development.

The three new sizes, a 7 x 49 Churchill, 5 x 46 Corona and 6 x 52 Torpedo are “in aging” and will be shipping soon, Herklots said. He made the initial announcement about the new sizes in this video by


The addition of the three sizes will bring the Nat Sherman Timeless Nicaragua line to a total of six sizes:

  • #660 – 6 x 60
  • #556 – 5 x 56
  • #452 – 4 x 52
  • #749 – 7 x 49
  • #546 – 5 x 46
  • #652T – 6 x 52 (Torpedo)

It also brings both the Dominican and Nicaraguan versions of the Nat Sherman Timeless Collection to a total of six vitolas each, though the two lines don’t match up exactly. The Nat Sherman Timeless Dominican is comprised of these six sizes:

  • Churchill – 7 x 48
  • No. 2 – 6 1/4 x 52 (Torpedo)
  • Hermoso – 5 1/2 x 54
  • #5 – 3 3/4 x 43
  • Especial – 6 x 38
  • Divinos – 5 x 32/50/36

The Nat Sherman Timeless Collection Nicaragua is made at Plasencia Cigars S.A., while the Dominican version is made at S.A.G. Import’s MATASA factory in the Dominican Republic.

The Nat Sherman website describes the Timeless Nicaragua as a “wonderfully medium-bodied Nicaraguan puro, box-pressed in boxes of 21…offering classic flavors of coffee, cocoa and chocolate, as well as a touch of earthinss (sic) and a light spice…creamy and rich.” Herklots didn’t disclose the price of the new additions, but noted that they are “within the same price ranges” of the rest of the line, implying that they should have MSRPs between $6 – $9.

The Nicaraguan-made extension to the Nat Sherman Timeless Collection made its debut at 2012 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show.

Update (May 24, 2013): Michael Herklots of Nat Sherman posted this picture to his Facebook page on Friday, May 24, announcing that the new sizes are available.

About the author

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.
