Nat Sherman’s Epoca brand is getting a second offering. Today Nat Sherman announced it is releasing the Epoca Reserva, a reincarnation of the Nat Sherman 1930 line.
In a press release, Michael Herklots, Vice President of Nat Sherman International commented, “This is a welcomed addition to the Epoca brand. It is much richer and fuller-bodied than our classic Epoca blend, but still quite complex and refined.”
The press release goes on to say, “This is the final step in the brand realignment project we successfully executed in 2018. Formerly known as ‘Nat Sherman 1930’, these incredible cigars will surely suit the Epoca brand well and set it up for continued growth for the long term. The blends remain unchanged from their original version and will share the same vitola names as they did under the 1930 brand.”
The blend for the Epoca Reserva consists of a Dominican grown wrapper, Dominican binder, and fillers from the Dominican Republic. It will be available in five sizes priced from $9.95 to $17.00. Shipping to retailers begins in the late spring.
It was in 2014 when Nat Sherman brought back the Epoca brand. Epoca was the first brand owned by Nat Sherman. At the time it was a “Clear Havana” using Cuban tobaccos and a domestic wrapper. When Epoca returned, the goal was to capture the essence of the original Clear Havana release.
