As is the case with redux reviews, I was searching through a few humidors until I found something that was of interest to me and might qualify as redux. Eventually, I stumbled across a Nomad C-276, a cigar that I reviewed and one that I hadn’t smoked—or thought of—in quite some time.
For those that aren’t aware, Nomad was bought last year by Ezra Zion in a transaction that I still don’t entirely understand from the buyer’s perspective. If you are on the email list for Cigar Federation, a retail outlet also owned by the same owners of Ezra Zion, you’ve like heard about the brand a bit since last September; but if you are not, Nomad seems to have disappeared from the universe. Perhaps that changes later this summer, but I’m not terribly confident about it at the moment as Ezra Zion isn’t listed as a vendor at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
