Nomad Adding Two New Vitolas to Core Line


Nomad Cigar Company will soon be adding a pair of new vitolas to their core line, according to company owner Fred Rewey.

The Fugitive II is a 6 x 51 Perfecto that comes with an MSRP of $198 for a box of 20, or $9.90 per cigar. The Rambler is a 5 x 50 Robusto that has an MSRP of $160 per box of 20, or $8.00 per cigar. Both use the same blend as the existing vitolas, an Ecuadoran Habano wrapper over filler and binder from the Dominican Republic.


The cigars are being made at Tabacalera L & V in Tamboril, Dominican Republic and should be shipped to the U.S. in the coming weeks with retail availability slated for February.

Rewey also said that there may be another new vitola released at the IPCPR Convention and Trade Show in July.

The addition of the Fugitive II and Rambler brings Nomad’s core line to seven vitolas:

  • Drifter – 6 x 60
  • Renegade – 5 1/2 x 54 Robusto Gordo
  • Vagabond – 4 5/8 x 54 Figurado
  • Navigator – 6 x 52 Torpedo
  • Fugitive – 5 7/8 x 64 Figurado
  • Fugitive II – 6 x 51 Perfecto
  • Rambler – 5 x 50 Robusto

With the additions, the Renegade vitola was reclassified as a Robusto Gordo, as it had been previously identified as a Robusto. The Nomad Renegade was reviewed on halfwheel in April 2012. Nomad’s core line debuted in March 2012.

In early January 2013 it was announced that Rewey had entered into a distribution agreement with Gary Griffith’s Emilio cigars.

Update: Shortly after this article was published, Nomad’s Fred Rewey posted this picture of the Fugitive II via his Twitter account, with the caption “Last Nomad #Cigar QC test before the new 6″ Perfecto is banded and boxed!”

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.
