Fred Rewey’s plans for a new line this month have hit a snag. The Nomad C-276 has been delayed until the 2014 IPCPR convention and trade show in mid-July. The A.J. Fernandez-made cigar will use a Ecuadorian habano oscuro wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and five different Nicaraguan fillers including ligero from Condega and Estelí.

Rewey told halfwheel this will be a regular production line with five sizes being released immediately after the trade show. There will a 6 x 50 toro, 5 x 50 robusto, 6 1/2 x 52 torpedo, 6 x 58 toro grande and 5 1/2 x 46 corona. All sizes are box-pressed and will come in 21-count boxes, with pricing under $10 for all sizes.

Nomad is distributed by House of Emilio.

Update (July 19, 2014)–Rewey issued a formal press release about the C-276 today, which added sizes and box count, and has been added to this story. A photo of the cigar was also included:
