Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2017 | Score: 88

A cedary, leathery Churchill with some intermittent tart, oily notes and a bready, earthy finish that's fairly full bodied.

A large Churchill whose wrapper is the color of milk chocolate. The smoke smacks heavily of pine with nutty undertones and a burnt peanut finish.

Handmade cigars have been sold under the name Nat Sherman for more than eight decades, but only a few years ago the brand was one that was dismissed by serious cigar smokers. Not anymore. The Sherman family and Michael Herklots have revitalized the name, eliminating old brands, embracing the brick-and-mortar retail model and remaking Nat Sherman with the Timeless Collection. Crafted in the Dominican Republic by cigar vet Manuel "Manolo" Quesada, Timeless reinvigorated what was a stodgy brand. This is the third year in a row a Nat Sherman Timeless has made our Top 25 list. The stately cigar has notes of coffee, black pepper and fresh green apple, with a subtle hint of leather and earth on the finish.

Sweet and cedary, this Churchill gradually develops notes of coffee, black pepper and fresh green apple as it's smoked. There are touches of leather and earth on the finish.
