Add Nomad Cigar Co. to the list of companies trying to reinvent Connecticut. While the trend has become less prevalent as it was two years ago, Rewey said he decided to go the direction of “Connecticut with something a bit extra.” Enter Nomad Connecticut Fuerte.

“It is crazy how hard it is to blend a Connecticut cigar,” said Rewey. “Almost two years into it and got nowhere that was anything special. Finally, we decided to go a slightly different direction with it and am really happy with the blend.”

Four sizes are planned—corona, robusto, robusto gordo and toro—for a March release with pricing set between $7.90-8.50. The cigar uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, a habano binder from Ecuador with Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers.

The cigar is made at Tabacalera L & V, the same factory responsible for Nomad’s core line.

Nomad is distributed by House of Emilio.
