Nat Sherman’s Panamericana, an exclusive cigar line to the Tobacconist Association of America (TAA) is adding three new sizes. Today the company announced the addition of the Robustico (4 x 54), Belicoso Fino ( 5 1/2 x 52), and Gordo (6 x 60). These new sizes bring the total number of vitolas in the Panamericana line to seven. The line will also remain an exclusive to TAA retailers.
The Nat Sherman Panamericana was originally released in 2014 as a shop exclusive to the Nat Sherman Townhouse in New York. Early last year, the line was offered up to TAA retailers for the first time.
“The Panamericana is a very exciting blend that we felt strongly about debuting in very traditional sizes,” said Michael Herklots, Vice President of Retail and Brand Development at Nat Sherman in a press release. “However, after working closely with our retail partners over the past year, and listening to their feedback, it was clear we needed to offer these more current and popular formats as well.”
The 48th annual Meeting and Convention of the TAA is scheduled to begin on March 6th in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The Convention is where TAA Exclusive Cigars are made available for order. Nat Sherman says the new sizes are aging and are expected to ship this Spring.
