Ferio Tego Re-Launches Metropolitan Selection – Cigar News

Ferio Tego, LLC officially formed over a year ago now. Last fall they brought back the Timeless Collection from the Nat Sherman archives and successfully launched their flagship Ferio Tego limited edition cigars Generoso and Elegancia, the former of which made #9 on our Top 25 cigars list and scored a 91 in blind tasting. Now the company is bringing back the legacy Nat Sherman Metropolitan Selection brand. The new cigars will start shipping this week.

Ferio Tego Metropolitan Selection is an important part of our portfolio. It is made up of blends that embody the most traditional expressions of their origins. Many of these blends were created more than twenty-five years ago and have been painstakingly maintained year after year. We are very proud to continue that work.

The Metropolitan Selection is a collection of five blends, made in three countries. The Metropolitan Connecticut and Maduro are manufactured in the Dominican Republic, in a mellow blend of Dominican fillers and binder tobaccos and available in either a Connecticut Shade or a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. The Metropolitan Habano is a Nicaraguan puro (100% Nicaraguan tobaccos), made in Nicaragua, with a medium, creamy body. The Metropolitan Host and Host Maduro hail from Honduras with a smooth, sweet flavor. The Metropolitan Selection is offered in boxes of 18 cigars (except the Banker in boxes of ten), and ranges in price between $7 and $11 per cigar before applicable taxes.

Ferio Tego is distributed in the United States by Davidoff of Geneva, USA.

Ferio Tego, LLC is a premium cigar and accessories company launched in 2021 by Michael Herklots, former Vice President of Nat Sherman International, LLC and Brendon Scott, former Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Nat Sherman, LLC. In addition to their flagship Ferio Tego brand, the company also owns the Metropolitan, Timeless, and Epoca brands of premium cigars as well as the Ancora accessories brand all formerly owned and distributed by Nat Sherman International, LLC.

FERIO TEGO is the Herklots family motto, found on the family’s coat of arms. While there are many interpretations and translations for this phrase, “Ferio Tego” loosely translates to “Strike and Defend.”
