EXCLUSIVE—Nat Sherman To Debut 1930 Collection

Nat Sherman has revealed to Cigar Aficionado that it will debut its newest line, Nat Sherman 1930 Collection, shortly before this summer's International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers' trade show.

Nat Sherman 1930 Collection, which is named for the company's founding year, is a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers, with a Dominican binder and wrapper.

"The Nat Sherman 1930 Collection pays homage to the year the brand was founded," said William Sherman, executive vice president of the New York City company.

The MATASA-made blend will come in five sizes, Corona (5 1/2 inches by 42 ring gauge), Corona Grande (6 by 46), Rothschild (4 1/2 by 52), Gran Robusto ( 5 1/4 by 54) and Inmenso (7 by 56). They'll come in hinged, unvarnished boxes of 24 and will range in price between $8.75 and $12.

This is the third new premium line from Nat Sherman in the last 18 months, with at least one more promised this year. Timeless Collection and Timeless Collection Nicaragua were both released last year; the Timeless Collection No. 2 won the distinction of No. 10 in our Top 25 Cigars of 2012.
