It’s the newest cigar from Fred Rewey’s Nomad and Tabacalera Fernandez S.A. While Rewey was unwilling to talk details of the blend, he did tell halfwheel that it was not very similar to the Nomad Estelí LE Lot 1386 in terms of components. Still he found the blend gave him a similar experience, so he named Lot 8613.
There will be five sizes for the Lot 8613: Robusto (5 x 50, $8.50), Coronita (5 1/2 x 46, $8.50), Toro (6 x 50, $8.75), Grand Toro (6 x 58, $8.95) and Churchill (7 x 48, $8.95). Each will come in boxes of 21.
The new Nomad Estelí Lot 8613 will ship April 6. Nomad is distributed by House of Emilio.
