Smoke Inn announced today that Michael Herklots will co-host the virtual Great Smoke 2021, dubbed The Great Smoke - "The Digital Experience." Michael Herklots is the former Vice President of Nat Sherman International and has previously worked with Davidoff as well.
Ferio Tego has announced the return of their flagship lines, Elegancia and Generoso, for 2022. Both cigars will be in the same blends and sizes as their 2021 launch counterparts. Both cigars measure 6 x 50 in a toro size and come in custom, hand-made travel humidors of ten cigars. The humidors come with humidity control packs built into the lower compartment. The Ferio Tego Generoso made #9 on our Top 25 Cigars of 2021 list.
"While milder than I tend to reach for, this cigar is quite satisfying. The sum of its parts, in the end, is better than each individual third. The aroma of this cigar is great and would likely not drive away someone otherwise opposed to cigar smoke. It will certainly raise questions from anyone passing by at the lounge. I do wish it could handle maintaining flavors whenever I put the cigar down for a rest. The frequency of puffing required makes this a pretty quick-burning cigar. I might not make this a regular smoke, but it is quite enjoyable" -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
Michael Herklots' Ferio Tego brand is set to bring back the first of the old Nat Sherman brands to the market starting with Timeless. The first two Timeless cigars to see market are Prestige and Sterling, both are available for order immediately for retailers. Both lines are rolled in the Dominican Republic by Quesada Cigars. This announcement follows on the heels of last months news that the company would be releasing their first new blend and limited edition in October.
Michael Herklots, former Vice President of Nat Sherman, is teaming up with Brendon Scott, former Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Nat Sherman, to launch a new company Ferio Tego, LLC. This new company has prurchased the brands from Altria the owner of the Nat Sherman brand and will bring back the brands of the now defunct Nat Sherman company to market. The lines will no longer have the Nat Sherman name, they will simply be called Timeless, Metropolitan, Epoca, Host, etc.
The long discontinued Epoca brand has been resurrected by Nat Sherman and is scheduled for a late spring release with a new blend and new identity. The original Epoca was a clear Havana cigar, meaning it was produced in the United States before the embargo and used imported Cuban leaf.
Ferio Tego is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Timeless Collection with a Limited Edition Release. The original Nat Sherman Timeless launched in 2012. It was the first blend that Michael Herklots created and launched from start to finish, so it has a special place in his heart. The Ferio Tego Timeless 10 Years will come in just one size, a Robusto Grande that measures 5.75” x 54. It will come in 10-count boxes, of which there were only 2,500 made. The cigar is rolled by Quesada Cigars in the Dominican Republic. The blend uses a Dominican wrapper, Dominican binder, and Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers.
"This was definitely on the milder side for someone like me who likes a stronger cigar, but the flavors really shined. Citrus, lemon zest, orange peel, leather, and Graham cracker all melded together to create a very enjoyable cigar. I would definitely try this again, especially when the weather warms up. Thanks for the experience!" -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
