IPCPR 2016: Nomad Cigar Co.


Since Nomad Cigar Co. is distributed by Boutiques Unified, you’ll find the booth located inside the BU booth along with the other brands they distribute. Jumping in and catching Fred Rewey in between retailers was slightly challenging, as I didn’t want to interrupt any sales meetings, but a lull came and Rewey was happy to sit down with me and talk about the new stuff he had coming.

Nomad Cigar Co.’s first IPCPR was 2012 – coincidentally my first one as well – and Rewey was quite pleased with how far his brand has come. There are a number of things coming down the line, and while most weren’t at the show since packaging wasn’t quite ready, I did get all the details.

Nomad Cigar Co Martial Law IPCPR 2016

Nomad Martial Law

Martial Law is a cigar that was under development for a little while, but as the packaging was getting ready to be printed up, the FDA announcement came and Rewey decided that he wanted to change the name to something fitting for the situation. It is produced at Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí, Nicaragua.

  • Binder: Nicaraguan Jalapa
  • Filler: Nicaraguan Condega, Estelí, Jalapa and Ometepe

Launch Date: July 16, 2016

Production: Regular


Nomad GB-19

From Wisconsin, Rewey is of course a Green Bay Packers fan. What he wasn’t a fan of, was candela wrapper. Having said that though, he did find some candela he was pleased with that had a good balance of grassiness to it, and blended his first candela-wrapped cigar. For now, this release will be for sale only at Wisconsin stores, though he did mention that some of them might be selling them online as well.

  • Wrapper: Candela
  • Binder: Nicaragua

  • Nomad GB-19 (6 x 50) – $10 (Boxes of 20, $200)

Nomad Fin de los Mundos

Another FDA inspired name, Fin de los Mundos, or End of the Worlds, will be launched early next year. It will come in four sizes and uses a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper.

  • Wrapper: Pennsylvania Broadleaf
  • Binder: Nicaraguan Habano
  • Filler: Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Pennsylvania

Nomad Signature Series

The Signature Series is the last of the finalized blends coming out that didn’t have packaging ready.

  • Wrapper: Ecuadorian Maduro
  • Binder: Ecuadorian
  • Filler: Nicaragua

Nomad Estelí LE Lot 1386

This is still not finalized, but Rewey said that the 1386 blend might be returning. He thinks they found some of the same vintage ligero from the same farm and crop and rolled up some of these for potential release early next year. The cigars are still resting now, so he issn’t going to know for a few more weeks whether or not it smokes the same, and if it doesn’t he isn’t releasing it under the same 1386 name.

  • Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
  • Binder: Nicaragua (Estelí & Jalapa)
  • Filler: Nicaragua (Jalapa)


  • Nomad Estelí LE Lot 1386 (6 x 50) – $8.75 (Boxes of 12, $105)

Launch Date: Early 2017, if it happens

Production: n/a

About the author

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010 I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion. Besides my cigar hobby and job in the IT industry, my wife and I love traveling, trying new restaurants and relaxing at home with our two dogs.
