Nomad Cigar Co. Releases much-anticipated C-276
As mentioned a couple weeks ago in an article describing another Nomad news item, and discussed on Half Ashed, Nomad Cigars has now released the C-276 at IPCPR 2014.
According to the information provided by Nomad, the C-276 is “a full flavored complex blend featuring five different filler tobaccos,” including two ligeros. This is the second regular production cigar for which owner Fred Rewey has partnered with AJ Fernandez for production. The cigar will be produced at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez in Estelí, Nicaragua.
The C-276 rounds out Nomad’s portfolio of offerings, which include the Dominican Classic, Nicaraguan S-307, and the recently released Dominican Connecticut Fuerte. It also marked Fred Rewey’s first venture into the inclusion of Ometepe tobacco in a Nomad blend.
“When I was blending the C-276 I approached it in layers. I kept trying to add layers and layers of flavor but didn’t want to overpower any one tobacco in the process. At one point I was struggling to add a final component that I couldn’t quite nail down. It was suggested to me that I visit Ometepe and check out that tobacco – it was the best addition to this blend I could make – it just came together,” said Rewey.
As with the other Nicaraguan lines, Rewey creates the name of the cigar using a variety of symbolic factoids. “The “C” is for Concepción, one of two volcanoes on Ometepe Island. “276″ is the square kilometers of the island. It seemed a fitting tribute to an incredible island growing amazing tobacco.” said Rewey.
