Today, Nomad Cigar Company announced details around the Nomad SA-17. This is the company’s seventh regular production line, and its first regular production line to feature a San Andres wrapper. The cigar will be released to retailers on May 18, 2016.
According to owner Fred Rewey, the SA-17 is actually a sister blend to the Nomad C-276. It was during development of the C-276 at A.J. Fernandez’s factory when Rewey started experimenting with San Andres wrapper.
“I love working with tobacco at AJ Fernandez’s factory. Ask anyone around, he has amassed some of the best aged, most diverse, quality tobacco. For me, blending is a creative process. It is nice to have that home in Esteli to blend and experiment.” commented Rewey in a press release.
This is not the first time Rewey has worked with San Andres. He used a San Andres wrapper on the shop exclusive Nomad H-Town San Andres for Stogies World Class Cigars in Houston. Hr also uses San Andres for the binder on the Nomad Therapy Connecticut cigar.
“I love San Andres wrapper. It may have taken me several years to wrap my arms around how it ages and plays with other tobaccos…but, for me it was worth the wait.” – Rewey added.
