It’s been a two-year wait, but at this year’s IPCPR Trade Show, Fred Rewey finally brought his Nomad Signature line for a widespread release.
Nomad Signature made its debut at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show. At the time, Rewey released it to a limited number of retailers in order to beat the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s August 8, 2016 deadline for pre-market approval. Last year, Rewey opted to showcase Fin de los Mundos, another line that had a limited release in 2016.
The Nomad Signature features an Ecuadorian wrapper and binder. The fillers are from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Rewey said this is will most likely become Nomad’s first vintage release. Nomad Signature uses a Dominican tobacco that has been known to vary the resulting blend depending on the vintage crop it has come from. Rewey has used this to his advantage, making a story around the blend. Production comes from Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí, Nicaragua.
The cigar is available in four sizes – each presented in 20-count boxes. At press time, the cigars are currently shipping to retailers.
