On Episode 63, we had Nomad Cigar Company Fred Rewey as our special guest. He discussed this cigar. We also recently assessed the Nomad S-307 on Cigar Coop.

The Nomad S-307 marks the third blend released by Nomad Cigar Company and the second blend out of the country of Nicaragua. It has marks the second core line to be released by the company. The name is derived from the fact it uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper (thus the “S”) while the 307 represents the approximate size of the area (in miles) of the region of the Nicaraguan region where tobacco is grown.

If you have smoked Rewey’s other Nicaraguan cigar, the Nomad LE Lot 1386, this cigar could not be more different. The S-307 is more of a medium strength, medium-bodied cigar. While it has some pepper, it’s not a spice bomb. It’s going to deliver a subtle raisin sweetness layered over an earthy profile. There also is an interesting walnut flavor in the mix. The construction was outstanding.

This was a nice cigar and I can see it’s place in the marketspace. It’s one I would reach for from time to time, so it’s worth a fiver.
