Nat Sherman will debut a cigar in honor of its President and Chief Executive Officer Joel Sherman. The Joel Sherman 75th Celebration will be a limited edition cigar that will make its debut at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas.
Joel Sherman is the son of company founder Nat Sherman who today is the patriarch of the family run company. He joined the company at the age of 21.
“These cigars are the epitome of a lifelong desire to create a unique smoking pleasure for my friends and customers,” said Joel Sherman, President & CEO of Nat Sherman. “I have always been asked ‘how do you smoke a cigar?’ and my answer is always the same ‘however you like’.”
The custom blend and packaging of this cigar is a reflection on Sherman himself. The crest that is showcased on the black lacquered box was inspired by Sherman’s days as a young drummer as it pays homage to the logo that was on his bass drum. Each box will also contain a personal note from Sherman describing his love of cigars and joy of being a part of a family run business.
“Throughout his long and illustrious career, our father has been recognized by his industry peers as a statesman, troubadour, friend and leader,” said William Sherman, Executive Vice President, Nat Sherman. “His passion has always been deeply rooted in his devotion to family and the fundamental belief to do what is right. We can think of no better way to celebrate his 75 years, than with a truly elegant reiteration of the product he loves – cigars.”
The Joel Sherman 75th Celebration will be produced at the Quesada Cigars factory, a long time collaborator with Nat Sherman. The cigar is expected to ship in August.
