#28 2023 Cigar of the Year: Ferio Tego Timeless Limited 10 Years
Filler: Dominican, Nicaraguan
Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
Robusto Grande: 6 x 54
The #28 2023 Cigar of the Year is the Ferio Tego Timeless Limited 10 Years. While Ferio Tego is a company that is only a couple of years old, it celebrated the tenth anniversary of the Timeless brand. The Timeless brand traces back to Nat Sherman in 2012, and it was acquired by former Nat Sherman employees and Ferio Tego co-founders Michael Herklots and Brendon Scott. When Timeless was introduced, it played a key role in the revitalization of the brands of Nat Sherman. Now that these brands are under the stewardship of Herklots and Scott, it makes sense to mark the milestone. The Timeless Limited 10 Years represents that milestone well.
The Timeless Limited 10 Years comes from the TABADEX factory in the Dominican Republic. It is a Dominican-forward blend with Dominican tobacco used for the wrapper, binder, and filler. The filler also contains some additional Nicaraguan tobacco. The cigar was offered in one size – a 5 3/4 x 54 Robusto Grande.Given that the first Timeless release came from Quesada’s TABADEX factory, it makes sense that the ten-year-anniversary cigar would come from that factory.
The Ferio Tego Timeless Limited 10 Years delivers notes of earth, bing cherry, wood, cedar, and pepper. The flavors are medium-bodied, countered by medium-strength.
This is the second time that Ferio Tego has placed at least one cigar on the Countdown as a company. It also marks the second consecutive year in a row the company has done so.
