Nomad Cigars (initially known for their Dominican blends) headed to Nicaragua for the Lot 8613 which is a regular production follow-up to the earlier and very limited 1386 blend. That isn’t confusing is it? Well confusing or not Nomad’s Fred Rewey hack blended his way to a really flavorful gem in the Lot 8613 which is produced at the AJ Fernandez Factory in Nicaragua.

Estelí Lot 8613 marks the 5th full-production cigar for Nomad. Frankly, I am still a bit overwhelmed how much Nomad has taken off. Like my other blends, I start with an individual profile in mind, but stay open to adapting along the way if other flavors command attention.

That is the fun part… letting the tobacco guide you to what it wants to be. I fell in love with the flavors and richness of Estelí Lot 8613 at the blending table but the big question was how would it marry and age? When checking it a year later to see how it was aging, I was more than happy with the result. It was definitely time to release it.Fred Rewey, Nomad Cigars
