Ferio Tego, the new cigar brand from former Nat Sherman executives Michael Herklots and Brendon Scott, is scheduled to make its market debut in October. The company announced today that the first two releases from the brand would be limited, each one made in a different country by a different company.
The 2021 Ferio Tego Elegancia, rolled in Licey, Dominican Republic by the Quesada family, has a blend of Ecuadoran wrapper, Dominican binder and a mix of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers. The 2021 Ferio Tego Generoso, which comes from the Plasencias in Estelí, Nicaragua, has a Honduran shade-grown wrapper around Nicaraguan binder and fillers.
Herklots called the two cigars “quite different from one another in style and pedigree.” He said the Dominican smoke will have “creamier, brighter notes” while the Generoso has been blended to show “dense, savory notes.”
Both cigars come in one size—a toro measuring 6 inches long by 50 ring—and will be packed in travel humidors, 10 cigars to each box, made by Humidif. Davidoff is handling distribution. The cigars are slated to sell for $210 per humidor of 10, or $21 per cigar and should reach cigar shops by the first week of October.
